When packaging up a dotnetcore lambda function for deployment to AWS, you would run the following command:

dotnet lambda package -o ../../build/{DestinationFileName}.zip

However, when I ran this command earlier today on a new Lambda function project, I got the following error:

No executable found matching command "dotnet-lambda"

This is because the Amazon.Lambda.Tools package isn’t being included in the dotnet build process, so to fix things, I had to edit the .csproj file for the Lambda function to include the following:

    <DotNetCliToolReference Include="Amazon.Lambda.Tools" Version="2.1.3" />

and everything seemed to work fine afterwards.
