Task timed out after 3.02 seconds aws lambda

01 May,2024 by Rambler

Question: I'm getting this error message when Invoking a Lambda function . How can I fix?

"errorMessage": "2022-04-29T12:13:13.402Z a7918215-28a1-45d0-99b2-xvsbeue987hj Task timed out after 3.02 seconds"


Answer:  You can make this change through the AWS Interface or AWS CLI

Using the AWS Interface to change the Lambda function Timeout value

1) Go to the AWS Console and Navigate to the Lambda Console.   You can type "Lambda" into the Search box

2) Click on your Lambda function name that relates to the error message

3) Select Configuration section and then select General Configuration. Click Edit

4) Change the Timeout Value as needed. A good starting point might be 3 minutes - although this will depend on the Lambda requirements 

5) Waiting for the Function to be successfully updated before invoking again 

Using AWS CLI to change the Lambda function Timeout value

--view the current timeout value 

aws lambda get-function-configuration --function-name my_lambda_function --query "Timeout"

--change the timeout value 

aws lambda update-function-configuration --function-name my_lambda_function --timeout 602
