Small trick on how to find out AWS payload for lambda for event

Recently i was writing a lot of different microservices using AWS Lambda. And for quite some time i was strugling to understand what will be the payload that my lambda will receive. Well, only in cases when this payload was coming from other AWS resources, of course :) Anyway, after quite some time i found a really noob tip that saves me now a lot of time :). Here's what you need to do :

  1. Open your AWS console
  2. Go to Lambda section
  3. Find yours or any other lambda
  4. Next to Test button there's a configuration for try out events
  5. Click Configure test events
  6. Start typing in the events examples!.

That's it. I can't believe that i didn't think about it before - it gives you an example of payload from other services ( ApiGateway, SNS etc).
