# Forwarding AWS Lambda logs to SnappyFlow

## Overview​

The AWS Lambda Extension is designed to forward logs from your AWS Lambda functions to SnappyFlow without requiring an external transport such as CloudWatch Logs.

This lightweight extension runs alongside your AWS Lambda functions. Submitting Lambda logs with the extension is supported in all Lambda runtimes.

## Installation​

• As Lambda Layer

• Add the Lambda Layer for the SnappyFlow extension to your AWS Lambda function with the following ARN:

arn:aws:lambda:<AWS_REGION>:106947364898:layer:sf-lambda-extension:3

Replace <AWS_REGION> with the same AWS region as your Lambda Function, for example, us-west-2
