Invoking an AWS Lambda function

Invoking a Lambda

What can I do with it?

  • Create documentation that can do it for you
  • Create executable runbooks
  • Use GitHub Identity to switch between your authorized AWS accounts and roles
  • Federate to exact locations in the AWS Console or deeplink into any website based on user input
  • Wrap a command line with a UI
  • Reduce toil, clicks, and user error
  • Build tools for non-technical users
  • Invoke AWS Lambda functions and AWS Step Functions and drop events onto an EventBridge Event Bus from your GitHub documentation
  • Embed third-party content (CloudWatch Dashboards, YouTube, CodePen etc.) in your GitHub documentation
  • Encourage least privilege access principles by reducing effort to use scoped-down roles
  • View AWS resources like CloudWatch Dashboards secured with GitHub Identity on a mobile device
  • Encourage a "Fix It" culture, it's easier to do it than put it in the backlog
  • Audit who did what, every AWS interaction is associated with a GitHub user and can be traced in CloudTrail

Heck yeah! How do I start?
