Access More Useful Data With The New Lambda Payload Schema

Elliott Spira | Thu, 24 Oct 2019

Customers regularly use our Lambda Actions to pass JSON payloads and environment variables to their Lambda functions at runtime.

Recently customers have been asking us whether they can access more data at runtime, including:

  • Information about the Trigger (especially when the Trigger is an SNS message, CloudTrail event or incoming webhook)
  • Information about the state of previous executed Actions

We're pleased to announce that we include the Rule Execution metadata in our new schema for the events we pass to Lambda.

For technical documentation on this schema, and information on support for customers with code referencing the legacy schema, please consult our documentation.
