Event Source Data Classes

Event Source Data Classes utility provides classes self-describing Lambda event sources.

Key Features

  • Type hinting and code completion for common event types
  • Helper functions for decoding/deserializing nested fields
  • Docstrings for fields contained in event schemas

Background

When authoring Lambda functions, you often need to understand the schema of the event dictionary which is passed to the handler. There are several common event types which follow a specific schema, depending on the service triggering the Lambda function.

Getting started

Utilizing the data classes

The classes are initialized by passing in the Lambda event object into the constructor of the appropriate data class or by using the event_source decorator.

For example, if your Lambda function is being triggered by an API Gateway proxy integration, you can use the APIGatewayProxyEvent class.

from aws_lambda_powertools.utilities.data_classes import APIGatewayProxyEvent

def lambda_handler(event: dict, context):
    event = APIGatewayProxyEvent(event)
    if 'helloworld' in event.path and event.http_method == 'GET':
        do_something_with(event.body, user)

Same example as above, but using the event_source decorator

        logger.debug("Process json in base64 encoded data str", data)

API Gateway Authorizer

New in 1.20.0

It is used for API Gateway Rest API Lambda Authorizer payload.

Use APIGatewayAuthorizerRequestEvent for type REQUEST and APIGatewayAuthorizerTokenEvent for type TOKEN.

This example uses the APIGatewayAuthorizerResponse to decline a given request if the user is not found.

When the user is found, it includes the user details in the request context that will be available to the back-end, and returns a full access policy for admin users.

AppSync Authorizer

New in 1.20.0

Used when building an AWS_LAMBDA Authorization with AppSync. See blog post Introducing Lambda authorization for AWS AppSync GraphQL APIs or read the Amplify documentation on using AWS Lambda for authorization with AppSync.

In this example extract the requestId as the correlation_id for logging, used @event_source decorator and builds the AppSync authorizer using the AppSyncAuthorizerResponse helper.

AppSync Resolver

New in 1.12.0

Used when building Lambda GraphQL Resolvers with Amplify GraphQL Transform Library (@function), and AppSync Direct Lambda Resolvers.

Cognito User Pool

Cognito User Pools have several different Lambda trigger sources, all of which map to a different data class, which can be imported from aws_lambda_powertools.data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event:

Trigger/Event Source Data Class
Custom message event data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event.CustomMessageTriggerEvent
Post authentication data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event.PostAuthenticationTriggerEvent
Post confirmation data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event.PostConfirmationTriggerEvent
Pre authentication data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event.PreAuthenticationTriggerEvent
Pre sign-up data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event.PreSignUpTriggerEvent
Pre token generation data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event.PreTokenGenerationTriggerEvent
User migration data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event.UserMigrationTriggerEvent
Define Auth Challenge data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event.DefineAuthChallengeTriggerEvent
Create Auth Challenge data_classes.cognito_user_pool_event.CreateAuthChallengeTriggerEvent

Define Auth Challenge Example

Note

In this example we are modifying the wrapped dict response fields, so we need to return the json serializable wrapped event in event.raw_event.

This example is based on the AWS Cognito docs for Define Auth Challenge Lambda Trigger.
