You can transfer file from ec2 instance to s3 bucket using lambda function.

Follow the below steps:

  • Create an IAM role with s3FullAccess and Ec2FullAccess

  • Create a s3 bucket

  • create a lambda function and try to run the below code.

import json
import boto3
from pprint import pprint
def lambda_handler(event, context):
    client = boto3.client("ec2")
    s3 = boto3.client("s3")
    status = client.describe_instance_status(IncludeAllInstances = True)
    return {
        'statusCode': 200,
        'body' : json.dumps('Hello from lambda')

Make sure your EC2 instance is  in running status.

Hope it will help.

Thank You
