How to export environment variables from a Lambda function.


Hello, I have created a Lambda function that fetched the static/hash token from the environment variables in the Configuration section. When I try to export the Lambda function using the Action > Export function, a zip file is downloaded without any configuration-related data in it. Is there a way to export the environment variables from the Lambda functions?

As referred in this documentation, you can obtain all the configuration details for the function through the AWS CLI like this:

aws lambda get-function-configuration --function-name <value> --output json

You can use the output to update the new function using this command:

aws lambda update-function-configuration --function-name <value> --cli-input-json <output from previous command>

You may need to change the output as needed before using it for the update-function-configuration invocation.
