I am using a Lambda function to query Amazon RDS. Lambda and RDS are in the same VPC, and also the RDS instance is publicly accessible. When the Lambda function is tested, i get the logs with the queried data but this error comes with it:

Execution result: failed with "errorMessage": "2017-07-05T15:05:27.425Z 596fdf39-6193-11e7-9176-f58796899f9b Task timed out after 3.00 seconds" }

var mysql = require('mysql');

exports.handler = (event, context) => {

var con = mysql.createConnection({

  host: "testdb.cxyzu.ap-south-1.rds.amazonaws.com",

  user: "root",

  password: "mypassword",

  database: "test",

  port: "3306",

// debug: true

});

con.connect(function(err) {

  if (err) throw err;

  console.log("Connected!");

// var sql = "INSERT INTO users (id, name) VALUES (4, 'dfdd')";

var sql = "select * from test.users";

  con.query(sql, function (err, result) {

    if (err) throw err;

//    console.log("1 record inserted");

      console.log(result);

  });

});

//callback("sucess");

}

and this is the output:

The error you get is because Lambda does not know whether the execution is over or not. To make the Lambda function understand, you should return something like success in the code.

Code:

var mysql = require('mysql');

exports.handler = (event, context) => {

var con = mysql.createConnection({

  host: "testdb.cxyzu.ap-south-1.rds.amazonaws.com",

  user: "root",

  password: "mypassword",

  database: "test",

  port: "3306",

 // debug: true

});

con.connect(function(err) {

  if (err) throw err;

  console.log("Connected!");

 // var sql = "INSERT INTO users (id, name) VALUES (4, 'dfdd')";

var sql = "select * from test.users";

  con.query(sql, function (err, result) {

    if (err) throw err;

//    console.log("1 record inserted");

      console.log(result);

      context.succeed("done"); //Lambda understands the execution is a success

  });

});

//callback("sucess");

}
