Invoke a lambda from VSCode python

could not find any answer on this.

All the tutorials mention how to use AWS toolkit or how to locally develop and test your lambda on VSCode. That’s not what I would like, I already have a lambda, and I would just like to invoke it.

To call a s3 or Dynamo DB, I can just run

dynamodb = boto3.resource('dynamodb')
table = dynamodb.Table(table_name)
scan_kwargs = {
    'FilterExpression': Key(my_key).eq(key_equal)
}
response = table.scan(**scan_kwargs)
data = response['Items']

What is the equivalent for invoking the lambda?

Answer

Try:

lambda_client = boto3.client('lambda', region_name='')

lambda_client.invoke(FunctionName='', InvocationType='', Payload='')

Where the empty strings can be replaced with your information.

See: https://boto3.amazonaws.com/v1/documentation/api/latest/reference/services/lambda.html#client
