AWS SAM Translator is a library that transform SAM templates into AWS CloudFormation templates

Project description

AWS SAM transform

Tests Update schema PyPI PyPI - Python Version Contribute with Gitpod

The AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) transform is a AWS CloudFormation macro that transforms SAM templates into CloudFormation templates.

To use the SAM transform, add AWS::Serverless-2016-10-31 to the Transform section of your CloudFormation template.

Benefits of using the SAM transform include:

  • Built-in best practices and sane defaults.
  • Local testing and debugging with the AWS SAM CLI.
  • Extension of the CloudFormation template syntax.

Getting started

Save the following as template.yaml:

Transform: AWS::Serverless-2016-10-31
Resources:
  MyFunction:
    Type: AWS::Serverless::Function
    Properties:
      Runtime: nodejs18.x
      Handler: index.handler
      InlineCode: |
        exports.handler = async (event) => {
          console.log(event);
        }

And deploy it with the SAM CLI:

sam sync --stack-name sam-app

The AWS::Serverless::Function resource will create a AWS Lambda function that logs events it receives.

Under the hood, the template is transformed into the JSON equivalent of the following CloudFormation template:

Resources:
  MyFunction:
    Type: AWS::Lambda::Function
    Properties:
      Code:
        ZipFile: |
          exports.handler = async (event) => {
            console.log(event);
          }
      Handler: index.handler
      Role: !GetAtt MyFunctionRole.Arn
      Runtime: nodejs18.x
      Tags:
        - Key: lambda:createdBy
          Value: SAM
  MyFunctionRole:
    Type: AWS::IAM::Role
    Properties:
      AssumeRolePolicyDocument:
        Version: "2012-10-17"
        Statement:
          - Action:
              - sts:AssumeRole
            Effect: Allow
            Principal:
              Service:
                - lambda.amazonaws.com
      ManagedPolicyArns:
        - arn:aws:iam::aws:policy/service-role/AWSLambdaBasicExecutionRole
      Tags:
        - Key: lambda:createdBy
          Value: SAM
