Amazon Lambda context object in PowerShell

When Lambda runs your function, it passes context information by making a $LambdaContext variable available to the handler. This variable provides methods and properties with information about the invocation, function, and execution environment.

Context properties
  • FunctionName – The name of the Lambda function.

  • FunctionVersion – The version of the function.

  • InvokedFunctionArn – The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that's used to invoke the function. Indicates if the invoker specified a version number or alias.

  • MemoryLimitInMB – The amount of memory that's allocated for the function.

  • AwsRequestId – The identifier of the invocation request.

  • LogGroupName – The log group for the function.

  • LogStreamName – The log stream for the function instance.

  • RemainingTime – The number of milliseconds left before the execution times out.

  • Identity – (mobile apps) Information about the Amazon Cognito identity that authorized the request.

  • ClientContext – (mobile apps) Client context that's provided to Lambda by the client application.

  • Logger – The logger object for the function.

The following PowerShell code snippet shows a simple handler function that prints some of the context information.
