Project description

aws-sqs-lambda module


Stability: Experimental

This is a developer preview (public beta) module.

All classes are under active development and subject to non-backward compatible changes or removal in any future version. These are not subject to the Semantic Versioning model. This means that while you may use them, you may need to update your source code when upgrading to a newer version of this package.

This AWS Solutions Konstruk implements an Amazon SQS queue connected to an AWS Lambda function.

Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition:

const { SqsToLambda } = require('@aws-solutions-konstruk/aws-sqs-lambda');

new SqsToLambda(stack, 'SqsToLambdaPattern', {
    deployLambda: true,
    lambdaFunctionProps: {
        runtime: lambda.Runtime.NODEJS_10_X,
        handler: 'index.handler',
        code: lambda.Code.asset(`${__dirname}/lambda`)
    deployDeadLetterQueue: true,
    maxReceiveCount: 15


new SqsToLambda(scope: Construct, id: string, props: SqsToLambdaProps);


Pattern Construct Props

Name Type Description
deployLambda boolean Whether to create a new Lambda function or use an existing Lambda function.
existingLambdaObj? lambda.Function An optional, existing Lambda function.
lambdaFunctionProps? lambda.FunctionProps Optional user-provided props to override the default props for the Lambda function.
queueProps? sqs.QueueProps Optional user-provided props to override the default props for the SQS queue.
encryptionKeyProps? kms.KeyProps Optional user-provided props to override the default props for the KMS encryption key.
deployDeadLetterQueue boolean Whether to create a secondary queue to be used as a dead letter queue.
maxReceiveCount number The number of times a message can be unsuccesfully dequeued before being moved to the dead letter queue.

Pattern Properties

Name Type Description
lambdaFunction() lambda.Function Returns an instance of the Lambda function created by the pattern.
sqsQueue() sqs.Queue Returns an instance of the SQS queue created by the pattern.
