Parameter

Comments

This parameter defaults to us-east-1.

service_path

path / required

The path to the root of the Serverless Service to be operated on.

Notes

Note

  • Currently, the serverless command must be in the path of the node executing the task. In the future this may be a flag.

Examples

- name: Basic deploy of a service
  community.general.serverless:
    service_path: '{{ project_dir }}'
    state: present

- name: Deploy a project, then pull its resource list back into Ansible
  community.general.serverless:
    stage: dev
    region: us-east-1
    service_path: '{{ project_dir }}'
  register: sls

# The cloudformation stack is always named the same as the full service, so the
# cloudformation_info module can get a full list of the stack resources, as
# well as stack events and outputs
- cloudformation_info:
    region: us-east-1
    stack_name: '{{ sls.service_name }}'
    stack_resources: true

- name: Deploy a project using a locally installed serverless binary
  community.general.serverless:
    stage: dev
    region: us-east-1
    service_path: '{{ project_dir }}'
