[ aws . lambda ]



Adds permissions to the resource-based policy of a version of an AWS Lambda layer . Use this action to grant layer usage permission to other accounts. You can grant permission to a single account, all AWS accounts, or all accounts in an organization.

To revoke permission, call RemoveLayerVersionPermission with the statement ID that you specified when you added it.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--layer-name <value>
--version-number <value>
--statement-id <value>
--action <value>
--principal <value>
[--organization-id <value>]
[--revision-id <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--layer-name (string)

The name or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the layer.

--version-number (long)

The version number.

--statement-id (string)

An identifier that distinguishes the policy from others on the same layer version.

--action (string)

The API action that grants access to the layer. For example, lambda:GetLayerVersion .

--principal (string)

An account ID, or * to grant permission to all AWS accounts.

--organization-id (string)

With the principal set to * , grant permission to all accounts in the specified organization.

--revision-id (string)

Only update the policy if the revision ID matches the ID specified. Use this option to avoid modifying a policy that has changed since you last read it.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To add permissions to a layer version

The following add-layer-version-permission example grants permission for the specified account to use version 1 of the layer my-layer.

aws lambda add-layer-version-permission \
    --layer-name my-layer \
    --statement-id xaccount \
    --action lambda:GetLayerVersion  \
    --principal 123456789012 \
    --version-number 1


    "RevisionId": "35d87451-f796-4a3f-a618-95a3671b0a0c",
