🛵 📬 Idempotent Middleware for Middy
An Idempotent Middy middleware for your AWS Lambdas
🛵 What is does
Middy is a very simple middleware engine that allows you to simplify your AWS Lambda code when using Node.js. This middleware aims to simplify the implementations of a idempotent API.
Making an API idempotent is not trivial as much people think, and you could take a look at Lambda Powertools for Python from AWS that does a great job to explain this use case and a concrete way to implement. There's also this great article from Malcolm Featonby, Making retries safe with idempotent APIs featured in the Amazon Builder's Library as Architecture level 300 which falls ins the advanced classification.
Use your favorite package manager:
yarn add middy-idempotent
npm install middy-idempotent -S
@middy/core, you must also use
@middy/http-json-body-parser since this middleware will read the request body and needed parsed as json. And right now I only tested twith the client provided by the
ioredis lib as well, so you'll need to install it too. At tthe bottom there's a write-up where we'll find how to use a Serverless Database service called Upstash for free that is currently (
0.0.20) the only storage supported.
client: new Redis(process.env.UPSTASH_REDISS),
Just place in your code, as soon as possible, passing the Redis client constructor with your
rediss:// url. See
demo for an example of application with infrastructure provisioned in AWS CD
Besides the client, you have th possibility to choose your own idempotency key instead of the whole
|Instance of class Redis
|instance of the class Redis provided by the lib
ioredis, the only supported at the moment
|boolean or string
true uses the body sent in the request. If no body is sent, this will yield an error.
|Optional. If you pass any value, will try to get this value as a key header in your request (i.e,
|String. One of "rawPath" or "rawQueryString"
|Optional. If you want to target a very specific (and possibly dynamic) path or raw query string in the request
Note that the optional targets are mutually excludents, they obey the hierarchy
path meaning if you pass all of them, it will pick
body and if that is not provided
header is picked. The default behaviour is use all the event object as idempotency key.
