Middleware for handling partially failed SQS batches.


To install this middleware you can use NPM:

npm install --save @middy/sqs-partial-batch-failure


Sample usage

const middy = require('@middy/core')
const sqsBatch = require('@middy/sqs-partial-batch-failure')

const originalHandler = (event, context, cb) => {
  const recordPromises = event.Records.map(async (record, index) => { /* Custom message processing logic */ })
  return Promise.allSettled(recordPromises)

const handler = middy(originalHandler)

Your Lambda function requires permission to delete the message from the queue.

  "Effect": "Allow",
  "Action": [
  "Resource": "arn:aws:sqs..."

Usage with Node.js <= 10

This middleware expects a Promise.allSettled resolved value to be returned by the Lambda handler, which is only available in Node.js 12+.

To use this middleware with earlier versions of Node.js, use a polyfill. We recommend installing promise.allsettled and adding require('promise.allsettled').shim() to your handler.
