  • If a resource description file (YAML) is available, you can run the s sync command to synchronize online resources to a local machine.
  • In the CLI mode (no YAML), you must specify the names of the service and function. For example, s cli fc sync --region cn-hanghzou --service-name fc-deploy-service --function-name http-trigger-py36.

Example output:

    http-trigger-py36: /Users/jiangyu/demo/test/start-fc-http-python3/1583208943291465_cn-hangzhou_fc-deploy_service_http-trigger-py36
