caPort Integer Body No 9000

The port on which the HTTP server listens for the custom runtime or custom container runtime.

Function code packages can be provided in the following two methods. You must use only one of the methods in a single request.

  • Specify the names of the Object Storage Service (OSS) bucket and object where the code package is stored.
  • Specify that the zipFile parameter is used as the Base64-encoded content of the ZIP file.
