GitHub Action for deploying Lambda code to an existing function

Usage

Upload zip file to AWS Lambda function.

name: deploy to lambda
on: [push]
jobs:

  deploy_zip:
    name: deploy lambda function
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    strategy:
      matrix:
        go-version: [1.13.x]
    steps:
      - name: checkout source code
        uses: actions/checkout@v1
      - name: Install Go
        uses: actions/setup-go@v1
        with:
          go-version: ${{ matrix.go-version }}
      - name: Build binary
        run: |
          cd example && CGO_ENABLED=0 GOOS=linux GOARCH=amd64 go build -v -a -o main main.go && zip deployment.zip main
      - name: default deploy
        uses: appleboy/lambda-action@master
        with:
          aws_access_key_id: ${{ secrets.AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID }}
          aws_secret_access_key: ${{ secrets.AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY }}
          aws_region: ${{ secrets.AWS_REGION }}
          function_name: gorush
          zip_file: example/deployment.zip
          memory_size: 128
          timeout: 10
          handler: foobar
          role: arn:aws:iam::xxxxxxxxxxx:role/test1234
          runtime: nodejs12.x

Deploy lambda function with source file

name: deploy to lambda
on: [push]
jobs:

  deploy_source:
    name: deploy lambda from source
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - name: checkout source code
        uses: actions/checkout@v1
      - name: default deploy
        uses: appleboy/lambda-action@master
        with:
          aws_access_key_id: ${{ secrets.AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID }}
          aws_secret_access_key: ${{ secrets.AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY }}
          aws_region: ${{ secrets.AWS_REGION }}
          function_name: gorush
          source: example/index.js

Set dry run mode to validate the request parameters and access permissions without modifying the function code.

name: deploy to lambda
on: [push]
jobs:

  deploy:
    name: deploy lambda function
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
    - uses: actions/checkout@v1
    - name: AWS Lambda Deploy
      uses: appleboy/lambda-action@master
      with:
        aws_access_key_id: ${{ secrets.AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID }}
        aws_secret_access_key: ${{ secrets.AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY }}
        aws_region: ${{ secrets.AWS_REGION }}
        function_name: gorush
        zip_file: output.zip
        dry_run: true

Deploy from a specific branch, master or release.

name: deploy to lambda
on: [push]
jobs:

  deploy:
    name: deploy lambda function
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
    - uses: actions/checkout@v1

      if: github.ref == 'refs/heads/master'
      uses: appleboy/lambda-action@master
      with:
        aws_access_key_id: ${{ secrets.AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID }}
        aws_secret_access_key: ${{ secrets.AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY }}
        aws_region: ${{ secrets.AWS_REGION }}
        function_name: gorush
        zip_file: output.zip
        dry_run: true

Add multiple environment:
