Lambda Function should have tracing enabled


AWS X-Ray is a service that collects data about requests that your application serves, and provides tools you can use to view, filter, and gain insights into that data to identify issues and opportunities for optimization. For any traced request to your application, you can see detailed information not only about the request and response, but also about calls that your application makes to downstream AWS resources, microservices, databases and APIs.


To enable tracing on a Lambda function:

  1. Log in to the AWS Management Console.
  2. Go to the Lambda service.
  3. Select the Lambda function.
  4. Select the Configuration tab.
  5. Select Monitoring and operations tools.
  6. Select Edit.
  7. Select the toggle switch under AWS X-Ray to enable Active tracing.
  8. Select Save.
