The sls deploy command deploys your entire service via CloudFormation. Run this command when you have made infrastructure changes (i.e., you edited serverless.yml). Use serverless deploy function -f myFunction when you have made code changes and you want to quickly upload your updated code to AWS Lambda.

serverless deploy


  • --stage or -s The stage in your service that you want to deploy to.
  • --region or -r The region in that stage that you want to deploy to.
  • --noDeploy or -n Skips the deployment steps and leaves artifacts in the .serverless directory
  • --verbose or -v Shows all stack events during deployment, and display any Stack Output.


After the serverless deploy command runs all created deployment artifacts are placed in the .serverless folder of the service.


#Deployment without stage and region options

serverless deploy

This is the simplest deployment usage possible. With this command Serverless will deploy your service to the defined provider in the default stage (dev) to the default region (us-east-1).

#Deployment with stage and region options

serverless deploy --stage production --region eu-central-1

With this example we've defined that we want our service to be deployed to the production stage in the region eu-central-1.
