Does aws-sam-deploy pipe support building layers?


I have read that SAM cli now supports building layers and followed the directions mentioned [here]( However, the layer uploaded by aws-sam-deploy pipe is missing `node_modules` folder.

Here is my template file:

AWSTemplateFormatVersion: 2010-09-09
Description: >-
- AWS::Serverless-2016-10-31
Type: AWS::Serverless::Function
CodeUri: src/sam-deploy
Handler: index.handler
Runtime: nodejs12.x
MemorySize: 128
Timeout: 100
Description: A Lambda function that returns a static string.
FunctionName: "sam-deploy"
- !Ref samDeployLayer
# Give Lambda basic execution Permission to the helloFromLambda
- AWSLambdaBasicExecutionRole
Type: AWS::Serverless::LayerVersion
LayerName: sam-deploy-layer
ContentUri: src/sam-deploy-layer
- nodejs12.x
BuildMethod: nodejs12.x

I have included both the `CompatibleRuntimes` and `Metadata` properties as per the requirement to build layers. `package.json` for this layer is located at `src/sam-deploy-layer/nodejs` as required for nodeJS runtimes.

@Adarsh Kurudi  we have released new version with bumped aws-sam-cli  to 0.53.0. Welcome to check it out


Best regards, Galyna

Is there any progress on this issue? I have an AWS SAM template with a `Metadata.BuildMethod` which also doesn't work (as if the `Metadata.BuildMethod` section of the resource is being ignored).

@nasfarley88 we have updated aws-sam-cli.

Please, share your pipeline, the part of aws-sam-deploy usage, and the template (you may put some sensitive things as hidden, but we need a template to understamd the exact case of failing and see the structure you're using).

We will investigate your case separately and notify you.

Regards, Galyna
