Serverless Cron Jobs & Scheduled Events with AWS Lambda

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read

Have you ever wondered how you would schedule something like a cron job or scheduled event when working with a serverless application?

This is one of the most asked questions I get when teaching serverless application development. In this video, you'll learn how to quickly add a scheduled event or cron job to an existing Lambda function, and if you've not deployed a function yet, you'll also learn how to do so using AWS Amplify.

I am scheduling a step-function that runs my lambda because I read that using directly a lambda with cloudwatch could lead to occasional delays, can you confirm this?


As a matter of fact I think I confused CloudWatch documentation that clearly states that the precision is 1 minute with DynamoDB TTL feature that is a completely different story.
Mistery solved! :)
