LambdaExecutionParameters - Amazon IoT Greengrass
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.


Contains parameters for a Lambda function that runs on Amazon IoT Greengrass.



The map of environment variables that are available to the Lambda function when it runs.

Type: String to string map

Key Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1.

Required: No


The list of event sources to which to subscribe to receive work messages. The Lambda function runs when it receives a message from an event source. You can subscribe this function to local publish/subscribe messages and Amazon IoT Core MQTT messages.

Type: Array of LambdaEventSource objects

Required: No


The list of arguments to pass to the Lambda function when it runs.

Type: Array of strings

Required: No


The encoding type that the Lambda function supports.

Default: json

Type: String

Valid Values: json | binary

Required: No


The parameters for the Linux process that contains the Lambda function.

Type: LambdaLinuxProcessParams object

Required: No


The maximum amount of time in seconds that a non-pinned Lambda function can idle before the Amazon IoT Greengrass Core software stops its process.

Type: Integer

Required: No


The maximum number of instances that a non-pinned Lambda function can run at the same time.

Type: Integer

Required: No


The maximum size of the message queue for the Lambda function component. The Amazon IoT Greengrass core stores messages in a FIFO (first-in-first-out) queue until it can run the Lambda function to consume each message.

Type: Integer

Required: No


Whether or not the Lambda function is pinned, or long-lived.

  • A pinned Lambda function starts when Amazon IoT Greengrass starts and keeps running in its own container.

  • A non-pinned Lambda function starts only when it receives a work item and exists after it idles for maxIdleTimeInSeconds. If the function has multiple work items, the Amazon IoT Greengrass Core software creates multiple instances of the function.

Default: true

Type: Boolean

Required: No


The interval in seconds at which a pinned (also known as long-lived) Lambda function component sends status updates to the Lambda manager component.

Type: Integer

Required: No


The maximum amount of time in seconds that the Lambda function can process a work item.

Type: Integer

Required: No
