This AWS Solutions Construct implements an Amazon SNS connected to an AWS Lambda function.

Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition:


import { Construct } from 'constructs';
import { Stack, StackProps } from 'aws-cdk-lib';
import { SnsToLambda, SnsToLambdaProps } from "@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-sns-lambda";
import * as lambda from 'aws-cdk-lib/aws-lambda';

new SnsToLambda(this, 'test-sns-lambda', {
  lambdaFunctionProps: {
    runtime: lambda.Runtime.NODEJS_14_X,
    handler: 'index.handler',
    code: lambda.Code.fromAsset(`lambda`)


from aws_solutions_constructs.aws_sns_lambda import SnsToLambda
from aws_cdk import (
    aws_lambda as _lambda,
from constructs import Construct

SnsToLambda(self, 'test_sns_lambda',


import software.constructs.Construct;


new SnsToLambda(this, "test-lambda-sqs-stack", new SnsToLambdaProps.Builder()
        .lambdaFunctionProps(new FunctionProps.Builder()

Pattern Construct Props

Name Type Description
existingLambdaObj? lambda.Function Existing instance of Lambda Function object, providing both this and lambdaFunctionProps will cause an error.
lambdaFunctionProps? lambda.FunctionProps User provided props to override the default props for the Lambda function.
existingTopicObj? sns.Topic Existing instance of SNS Topic object, providing both this and topicProps will cause an error.
topicProps? sns.TopicProps Optional user provided properties to override the default properties for the SNS topic.

Pattern Properties

Name Type Description
lambdaFunction lambda.Function Returns an instance of the Lambda function created by the pattern.
snsTopic sns.Topic Returns an instance of the SNS topic created by the pattern.

Default settings

Out of the box implementation of the Construct without any override will set the following defaults:

Amazon SNS Topic

  • Configure least privilege access permissions for SNS Topic
  • Enable server-side encryption for SNS Topic using AWS managed KMS Key
  • Enforce encryption of data in transit

AWS Lambda Function

  • Configure limited privilege access IAM role for Lambda function

  • Enable reusing connections with Keep-Alive for NodeJs Lambda function

  • Enable X-Ray Tracing

  • Set Environment Variables

    • AWS_NODEJS_CONNECTION_REUSE_ENABLED (for Node 10.x and higher functions)
