How to create a functions namespace

Published on 26 May 2021

This page shows you how to create your first functions namespace. Namespaces allow you to group your functions and share environment variables between them.

Identity and Access Management (IAM):

If you have activated IAM, you may need certain IAM permissions to carry out some actions described on this page. This means:

  • you are the Owner of the Scaleway Organization in which the actions will be carried out, or
  • you are an IAM user of the Organization, with a policy granting you the necessary permission sets
Requirements:
  1. Click Functions in the Serverless section of the side menu. The functions page displays.

  2. Click Create a namespace. The functions namespace creation wizard displays.

  3. Complete the following steps in the wizard:

    • Enter a name and optionally a description for your namespace. The first character of your namespace must be a letter. It can only contain letters, numbers, and dashes. No other special characters are permitted. The namespace is case-sensitive and cannot be edited after its creation.
    • Choose a region, which is the geographical location in which your namespace will be deployed.
    • Enter any environment variables required for your namespace. Environment variables configured in a namespace will be available in all functions/apps within the same namespace. For each environment variable, click +Add and enter the key/value pair.
    • Set secret environment variables (optional). Secrets are environment variables which are injected into your function and stored securely, but not displayed in the console after initial validation. Add a key and a value.
    • Verify the estimated cost.
  4. Click Create a namespace to finish.

    Your namespace is now created and you are taken to its Functions tab.
