Serverless Plugin Decouple

Remove ImportValue dependencies by replacing them with the actual values in order to update base exports

View on Github


Allows serverless stacks which import values to leverage the values of the exports rather than the reference to the exports.

Use case

You have a serverless framework deployment which contains your databases. In the process of refactoring you realize that you want to have a caching layer before your database. Currently you'd have to either make a new export or undeploy your dependant stacks.


Install the plugin into the directory your serverless.yml is located

npm install serverless-plugin-decouple

Add the decouple plugin to your plugins, and add a custom variable to turn it on

    - serverless-plugin-decouple

    decouple: ${opt:decouple, 'false'}

Run the deploy command

serverless deploy --decouple true
