Invoke AWS Lambda with Another Lambda Function with Nodejs

Invoke AWS Lambda with Another Lambda Function with Nodejs

In this article, I will show you how to invoke a lambda function from another lambda function.

In this article, I will show you how to invoke a lambda function from another lambda function.

This invocation is most helpful in scenarios where you have layers or have common inputs to two functions, but they can’t be integrated, in such cases, we use the invoke method. Well, this is just one of the reasons, there are infinitely many reasons to use this based on your requirement.

For this, I have created two functionstriggerLambdaFunction *and *testFunction. While creating a Lambda function make sure you assign the IAM Role for Lambda, which has Policies of “AWSLambdaFullAccess” attached to it as shown below.

IAM Role to be used in lambda functions

The “testFunction” is the one we are going to trigger using another lambda function called “triggerLambdaFunction”. Both are created in the same way and here I’m using Node.js to write the functions.

Creating a new Lambda Function

In this triggerLambdaFunction, we have a FunctionCode window where we write our code to invoke another function using AWSLambda-invoke method which is defined in AWS.Lambda-class. *So to use this method we should first *import our** AWS-SDK** in the function. This is done to provide JavaScript objects for our AWS service.

Reporting Errors via ChatOps using AWS Lambda & NodeJS

This article explains how to add real time notifications using Slack, ChatOps, Lambda and NodeJS. This article explains how to inject an error reporting module using ChatOps and how it helps organizations react faster to issues arising from applications that were running inside AWS Lambda Functions. In this demo, I will be using NodeJS and will utilize Slack to deliver alarms to important stakeholders. Reporting Errors via ChatOps using AWS Lambda & NodeJS

CI/CD Pipeline for NodeJS Lambdas on AWS using Jest, Serverless Framework, Github

I wanted to start a serverless project, and one of the primary headaches aside from architecting the workflow and deciding which lambda functions need to be created is a simple and yet effective CICD workflow.

A Deep Dive into Serverless Tracing with AWS X Ray & Lambda

A Deep Dive into Serverless Tracing with AWS X Ray & Lambda. Over the past few weeks I’ve been experimenting with building a Serverless API on AWS with the goal of having everything needed to run a production system. One necessary piece was distributed tracing. While I’d seen a bit of what some non-AWS options had to offer, the extra cost of the services themselves, along with actually getting the data to them, was a bit prohibitive for what I imagined should be possible (and cheaper) with only AWS, which brought me to X Ray.
