Update Existing Lambda Function using SAM.


we have multiple lambda functions already created manually, now we wanted to move on SAM. rather then creating any new lambda functions from SAM, we wanted to update existing one. is there any way to move those existing lambda function via SAM, so that we can update and manage those existing lambda function via SAM.

As SAM is based on CloudFormation, you can import resources to it.

You'll need to use the CLI for it, as the console doesn't support the import when the template has the Transform section (reference).

Here is more information on how to do the import: Import an existing resource into a stack using the AWS CLI.

Check the overview of the import process.

  • Thanks, I also got to know about this approach but still I have one question, existing lambdas have already connected with API Gateways, Step functions, Cloud watch events as triggers. is there any way to import these all also cloud formation stack?? Like I wanted to move these lambdas with all it's triggers to sam.


Try exporting the existing Lambda function's SAM template: Under Actions > Export Function then choose "Download AWS SAM File" to download the function SAM template. I think you should be able to tweak it to your needs
