How to wildcard aws lambda function permission in resource


Hi I have a lot of lambda functions that needs lambda:UpdateFunctionCode permission. Its too troublesome to input all the functions’ ARNs in the resource field. All my functions has a prefix, when I try to use prefix* in the resource field it does not allow me.

This is what I tried but didn’t work.

Is there a way I can use a wildcard for this?

Edit: added a fake account number.


Although this is a good feature to have but I have verified with AWS support

(1) Function name format cannot include “*” (

(2) they have submit a feature request internally. The support also suggest you could also raise the concerns on the Github[3][4] page so that the Quickstart team can directly address them.
