Serverless IAM Roles Per Function Plugin

serverless npm package Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies Status

A Serverless plugin to easily define IAM roles per function via the use of iamRoleStatements at the function definition block.

Installation

npm install --save-dev serverless-iam-roles-per-function

Add the plugin to serverless.yml:

plugins:
  - serverless-iam-roles-per-function

Note: Node 6.10 or higher runtime required.

Usage

Define iamRoleStatements definitions at the function level:

functions:
  func1:
    handler: handler.get
    iamRoleStatementsName: my-custom-role-name #optional custom role name setting instead of the default generated one
    iamRoleStatements:
      - Effect: "Allow"        
        Action:
          - dynamodb:GetItem        
        Resource: "arn:aws:dynamodb:${self:provider.region}:*:table/mytable"
    ...
  func2:
    handler: handler.put    
    iamRoleStatements:
      - Effect: "Allow"        
        Action:
          - dynamodb:PutItem        
        Resource: "arn:aws:dynamodb:${self:provider.region}:*:table/mytable"
    ...

The plugin will create a dedicated role for each function that has an iamRoleStatements definition. It will include the permissions for create and write to CloudWatch logs, stream events and if VPC is defined: AWSLambdaVPCAccessExecutionRole will be included (as is done when using iamRoleStatements at the provider level).

if iamRoleStatements are not defined at the function level default behavior is maintained and the function will receive the global iam role. It is possible to define an empty iamRoleStatements for a function and then the function will receive a dedicated role with only the permissions needed for CloudWatch and (if needed) stream events and VPC. Example of defining a function with empty iamRoleStatements and configured VPC. The function will receive a custom role with CloudWatch logs permissions and the policy AWSLambdaVPCAccessExecutionRole:

functions:
  func1:
    handler: handler.get    
    iamRoleStatements: []
    vpc:
      securityGroupIds:
        - sg-xxxxxx
      subnetIds:
        - subnet-xxxx
        - subnet-xxxxx

By default, function level iamRoleStatements override the provider level definition. It is also possible to inherit the provider level definition by specifying the option iamRoleStatementsInherit: true:

provider:
  name: aws
  iamRoleStatements:
    - Effect: "Allow"
      Action:
        - xray:PutTelemetryRecords
        - xray:PutTraceSegments
      Resource: "*"
  ...
functions:
  func1:
    handler: handler.get
    iamRoleStatementsInherit: true
    iamRoleStatements:
      - Effect: "Allow"        
        Action:
          - dynamodb:GetItem        
        Resource: "arn:aws:dynamodb:${self:provider.region}:*:table/mytable"

The generated role for func1 will contain both the statements defined at the provider level and the ones defined at the function level.

If you wish to change the default behavior to inherit instead of override it is possible to specify the following custom configuration:

custom:
  serverless-iam-roles-per-function:
    defaultInherit: true

More Info

Introduction post: Serverless Framework: Defining Per-Function IAM Roles

Note: Serverless Framework provides support for defining custom IAM roles on a per function level through the use of the role property and creating CloudFormation resources, as documented here. This plugin doesn’t support defining both the role property and iamRoleStatements at the function level.
