Ran through an AWS lambda install this morning -- flawless, and worked great, right out of the box. Kudos for providing such a smooth path for transition for your users. Highly appreciated.

The one place I did get stuck for a while was setting the specific IAM/cloudformation permissions within the AWS console -- this took several tries to get right. It would be helpful to state (or link to) a sample of what the permissions required for AWS deploy are for this project.

It's IAM.
You can follow the guide on how to set up the credentials here:

All the permissions are listed there. Once serverless is setup with aws credentials, this migration is a breeze.

I had to create a user with custom permissions for CloudFormation execution functions. Added a custom policy and used this json code:

    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
            "Sid": "Stmt1449904348000",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
            "Resource": [
