How to Deploy as an AWS Lambda

Contents

◷ Reading Time: 5 minutes

You can deploy a project as an AWS Lambda. By doing this, you can get the service URL of your project without needing to install FlexRule Server.

We are deploying this Decision Table as an example. It takes a person’s age as an input and outputs the title according to the age range.

This is the input object of the decision table.

{
     "person":
     {
         "Age":0,
         "Title":null
     }
 }

The complete project is attached at the end of the page.

How to Deploy

Open your project’s entry document.
In this example, the decision table is the entry document.

Click on the Package Builder.

Add your package details such as,

  • Package identifier
  • Package version
  • Service version
Go to Deployment tab and select AWS Lambda.

Enter AWS subscription details. For more information about Access Keys refer to How to retrieve AWS Access Key Id and Access Key Secret.

Optionally, you can create a JSON according to the following template and save it as a JSON file (.json). Then use the buttonto upload the created JSON file with AWS subscription details.
{
     Access Key Id: "123435a7-331f-4da7-bbe3-da50rer34383",
     Access Key Secret: "vH.F3y-_3Ll1YSX7~WQz397fMwXtOEmp49",
     Bucket:"service-bucket",
     Region:"us-west-2",
 }


If the specified Bucket doesn’t exists yet, it will create a new one under the selected region. For Bucket naming rules refer to this link.

Select the Runtime license file. The Runtime folder will be automatically taken from the Runtime path you have defined in your project.

Click Publish.

Once the package was created successfully, you will see a confirmation message.

The deployment will happen in the background. On the background task window, you will see the list of deployment tasks.

The complete list of deployment tasks can be seen along with their status.

If there are any errors, you can see the specific task(s) with the error(s).

Select the errored task and click on View Task Result to see the detailed exception.
