Meteor Files - Using AWS S3 with Lambda gives "No Such Key" error on getObject


I am using AWS S3 for storing images with Lambda functions (for resizing images on request).
When I try getting the resized image after uploading the original it gives error as “No Such Key” (The specified key does not exist)

How my lambda function works

I have hosted my S3 bucket with redirect rules.
When a file URL (http://****** is hit it returns the file.

Whenever a file’s URL with width x height specifications is visited it runs the lambda function and creates the file in a folder named with the same resolution.

eg: http://*****
this creates 4cpLYeFK4oxPSYQJi-original.jpg with 300x300 specification in a folder named “300x300”.

Typically my bucket looks like

I grabbed ideas for the above from here

              end     = vRef.size - 1;

        s3.getObject(opts, function (error,data) {
          if (error) {
            console.error(error); //Here Im Struck with the error
            if (!http.response.finished) {
          } else {
            if (http.request.headers.range && this.httpResponse.headers['content-range']) {
              // Set proper range header in according to what is returned from AWS:S3
              http.request.headers.range = this.httpResponse.headers['content-range'].split('/')[0].replace('bytes ', 'bytes=');

            fileColl.serve(http, fileRef, fileRef.versions[version], version, dataStream);

        return true;
      // While file is not yet uploaded to AWS:S3
      // It will be served file from FS
      return false;

On the above code, when I upload the file I clone the version.original object to an another version “300x200”.

Error Object


What goes behind?

When I visit the local URL (created by meteor files) for the version 300x300, the sdk is trying to get the object which is not physically present there (when we request for the file in URL it invokes the Lambda fn and creates the file) and returns the No such key Error Code.

I need the lambda function to be invoked when I request for the file which then creates the file and returns as a response.

Is it an Issue ?? or Am I doing it wrong?
