Trigger Management

Last updated: 2021-07-21 15:51:33

    Currently, web functions only support API Gateway triggers. You can bind API Gateway triggers in the SCF console or bind backend functions in the API Gateway console.

    Trigger Overview

    Characteristics of HTTP API Gateway triggers:

    • Passthrough HTTP request
      After API Gateway receives an HTTP request, if the API Gateway backend is connected with an SCF function, the function will be triggered. At this time, API Gateway will directly pass through the HTTP request, without performing event type format conversion. HTTP request information includes the specific service that receives the request, API rule, actual request path, method, and path, header, and query of the request.
    • Sync invocation
      API Gateway invokes the function synchronously, and it will wait for the function to return before the timeout period configured in it elapses. For more information on invocation types, please see Invocation Types.

    Trigger Configuration

    API Gateway triggers can be configured in the SCF console or the API Gateway console. For more information on trigger configuration, please see Overview.

    Trigger Binding Limits

    In API Gateway, one API rule can be bound to only one function, but one function can be bound to multiple API rules as the backend. You can create an API with different paths in the API Gateway console and point the backend to the same function. APIs with the same path, same request method, and different release environments are regarded as the same API and cannot be bound repeatedly.

    Request and Response

    Request method is the method to process request sent from API Gateway to SCF, and response method is the method to process the returned value sent from SCF to API Gateway. For web functions, API Gateway will add the information required for function triggering in the header and directly pass through the original request to trigger the backend function.


    The following parameters don't support custom configuration:

    • connection field
    • Custom fields starting with X-SCF-
