AWS Lambda Application Runtime Limitations


A customer wants to use AWS Lambda Applications (not only functions) with Python runtime, but as they mentioned and I could double check internally, it seems only NodeJS support is offered (at least through the AWS Console).

However, I can’t find any documentation explicitly talking about that limitation. Do you know if that is a known limitation and where I can find more about it?

If you try to go now to Lambda > Applications > Create Application > Create/Author from scratch (or use this link) -> you get only NodeJS Runtime

There are only examples that use node.js currently with Lambda Applications. If you use Cloudformation to deploy Lambda, then they appear as applications, so can make your own. Optionally use the Serverless Application Repository to do this. Currently the "Authohr from Scratch" option only includes Node.js. This can be done via SAM, Cloudformation, serverless, CDK, etc.
