AWS Lambda Invoke Action

Run AWS Lambda function completely serverless via Thingsup IoT Platform.

This provides a way to invode AWS Lambda function. Before adding AWS lambda Invoke Action, user has to define a AWS Connection. User need to provide following parameters to invoke AWS Lambda Function.


  • AWS Lambda function name which can be specified as below

    • Function name - my-function (name-only), my-function:v1 (with alias).

    • Function ARN - arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:123456789012:function:my-function.

    • Partial ARN - 123456789012:function:my-function.


In case of RequestResponse, Action will wait till Lambda function execution is completed. Event invocation type will complete action immediately, without waiting for Lambda response.


  • Javascript code to supply dynamic data to lambda function.

  • "payload" object coming from rule or action trigger is available in this code, function can be used to modify payload before sending to lambda.

//Example 1

payload["speed"] = (payload.speed*5)/18; 
//Convert data on the go from km/hr to m/s.

Connection ID

User need to provide a Connection ID of AWS connection.

Please note the following points:

  • "payload" object is supplied from Action Trigger like Rules, Action Command etc.

  • Data Response of Lambda execution will be available as Action Response.
