AWS Lambda is an event-driven, serverless computing platform provided by Amazon as a part of Amazon Web Services. It is a computing service that runs code in response to events and automatically manages the computing resources required by that code.
When using that application, you may face the need to run periodic jobs within this platform. To achieve that, there are multiple solutions.
AWS Lamdba, used individually, does not allow you to schedule the execution of functions in a recurring manner. However, you can easily rely on other tools provided by Amazon, such as Amazon EventBridge, which will allow you to define recurring events that result in the invocation of one of your lambda functions. To use it, you just have to create a new periodic event and choose the Lambda function you want to invoke as destination.
