Function “xxxxxx” doesn’t exist in this Service
Serverless Framework is complaining that it cannot find a Lambda function with the specified name.
Here are a few things to check if you are running into this issue:
Double check the spelling and case. Ensure the name of the function you are trying to invoke matches the one defined in the functions section of your
serverless.yml. For example, if your
service: hello-world ... functions: get: handler: get.main
The correct function name when trying to invoke is
serverless invoke local -f get, not
serverless invoke local -f hello-world-dev-get.
Alternatively, if you are doing a remote invoke (not
serverless invoke local), make sure the service has been successfully deployed. You can check if the service has been deployed by running
serverless info. And the function you are trying to invoke should be listed under functions.
For example, you might see something like this:
Service Information service: hello-world stage: dev region: us-east-1 stack: hello-world-dev resources: 11 api keys: None endpoints: GET - https://xxxxxxxxxx.execute-api.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/dev functions: get: hello-world-dev-get layers: None
This means that you can now invoke the function using
serverless invoke -f get.
