  • Stream wrapper set to s3 bucket 
  • Cloud watch notifies lambda trigger 
  • Asynchronous task is run and data sent back to Drupal 
  • Data used in Drupal to set categories the Images 

Resources used. 

  • Drupal CMS 
  • Drupal s3fs Module 
  • AWS::S3::Bucket

Putting it all together Cloud formation is an amazing, seamless way to run an asynchronous task, reducing load on the main server, the way server-less is working is just amazing.
