lambda function can't access secrets manager


I am developing an AWS Lambda function using Python. When I directly use Python code in AWS Lambda to access the secrets manager, it works fine. However, when I package the Lambda function code with dependencies, upload it as a zip file, and run it, I am unable to retrieve the secret, and the execution times out. Why is this happening?

I have followed the instructions in this link , set up the layer, and ensured that the role and VPC subnet are correctly configured.

============================= after set ENV PARAMETERS_SECRETS_EXTENSION_LOG_LEVEL = debug Debug log

[AWS Parameters and Secrets Lambda Extension] 2023/10/07 08:42:36 INFO Serving on port 2773

and python lambda function code is

import json
import urllib.parse
import boto3
import gzip
import io
import os
import datetime
from datetime import datetime

def get_redshift_credentials():
        secrets_manager_client = boto3.client('secretsmanager')
        response = secrets_manager_client.get_secret_value(SecretId='this is MY ARN')
        secret_string = response['SecretString']

        secret_data = json.loads(secret_string)

        host = secret_data['host']
        port = secret_data['port']
        dbname = secret_data['dbName']
        user = secret_data['username']
        password = secret_data['password']

        cached_redshift_credentials = (host, port, dbname, user, password)
        return cached_redshift_credentials

    except Exception as e:
        print(f"Error retrieving Redshift credentials: {str(e)}")

def lambda_handler(event, context):
    print("begin lambda function run")
    redshift_credentials = get_redshift_credentials()


Hi Aaren,

I think you need to correctly configure Role for Lambda Function, to be able to access Secrets from the Secrets Manager.
Please follow this guide [1] to access the secrets using lambda (python) with correct Permissions.

If you have your Lambda Function within a VPC, you also need to consider using a VPC Endpoint or NAT gateway for your request to reach Secrets Manager. [2]

  • Thank you for your answer, I am sure configure Role and VPC correct ,with the same code ,direct run python in AWS Lambda can access SecretManager

  • Okay, you can try to use the Lambda Function environment variable PARAMETERS_SECRETS_EXTENSION_LOG_LEVEL with a value as debug to get a detailed log. This might help in debugging the issue. Also, could you please share some logs to assist you better?

  • OK I post debug logs lambda code in update post

  • Hi, I think you are using boto3.client('secretsmanager') in the Lambda code. Instead, you should make a "GET" request using "http". Since you have configured a layer "AWS Parameters and Secrets Lambda Extension", it is making requests to localhost port 2773. You can modify your Lambda code to be similar to the reference [1], it should work fine then. Please refer to this code:

  • Thank you , I resolve this question use HTTP request to get Secrets
