Table: aws_lambda_layer_version - Query AWS Lambda Layer Versions using SQL

The AWS Lambda Layer Version is a distribution mechanism for libraries, custom runtimes, and other function dependencies. Layers promote code sharing and separation of responsibilities so that you can iterate faster on writing business logic. With layers, you can manage your in-house and external code dependencies separately.

Table Usage Guide

The aws_lambda_layer_version table in Steampipe provides you with information about each version of a Lambda layer within AWS Lambda. This table allows you, as a DevOps engineer, to query version-specific details, including the layer ARN, description, license info, compatible runtimes, and the date it was created. You can utilize this table to gather insights on layer versions, such as their compatibility with different runtimes, license information, and more. The schema outlines the various attributes of the Lambda layer version for you, including the layer version ARN, layer name, version, description, and associated tags.

This table is available as a standalone Exporter CLI. Steampipe exporters are stand-alone binaries that allow you to extract data using Steampipe plugins without a database.

You can download the tarball for your platform from the Releases page, but it is simplest to install them with the script:

/bin/sh -c "$(curl -fsSL" -- aws

You can pass the configuration to the command with the --config argument:

steampipe_export_aws --config '<your_config>' aws_lambda_layer_version
