Deploy .zip file archives

  • Note If you have not already done so, you must install git and then add the git executable to your Windows %PATH% environment variable.

  • Note When you create a Go Lambda function using the AWS CLI, the value of the handler setting you define is the executable file name. For more information, see AWS Lambda function handler in Go.


  • Important ADOT is the preferred method for instrumenting your Lambda functions. We recommend using ADOT for all new applications. However, due to the flexibility OpenTelemetry offers, your Lambda function invocations may experience cold start latency increases. If you're optimizing for low-latency and also do not require OpenTelemetry's advanced capabilities such as telemetry correlation and dynamically configurable backend destinations, you may want to use the AWS X-Ray SDK over ADOT.

  • Note You cannot configure the X-Ray sampling rate for your functions.
