Can I increase my Lambda environment variable size quota?

Last updated: 2020-02-18

I want to configure more than 4 KB of environment variables on my AWS Lambda function. Can I increase my service quota for Lambda environment variables?


The default quota value of 4 KB for all of a Lambda function's environment variables can't be increased. To review the Lambda service quotas, see the Service Quotas console.

To have more than 4 KB of Lambda environment variables for your function, use an external data store. For example, you can use AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store, a database, or a file in an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket.

Note: Using these services can incur charges on your AWS account. For pricing information, see AWS Pricing.
