Hi @Reham Adel!


Unfortunately, it sounds like this is more of an issue with your Lambda configuration than the Opsgenie SDK itself.


I would make sure you've gone through this article (just one I found through a search) and see if it helps clear the error up.


While this is probably a better question for an AWS-centric forum, I have gotten that error when there is something wrong with how I've organized packages in the .zip I'm deploying - or if they are just missing altogether. At first glance, I think you may be installing the SDK locally instead of a target directory:

pip3 install -t path/to/target/folder opsgenie-sdk

or similar based on that help article I linked. Also, you may also only need to install them to opsgenie/python, not opsgenie/python/lib/python3.9/site-packages.


Hope this helps!
