(aws-events-targets): Event Rule Targets do not apply to multiple Lambda Functions

See original GitHub issue

When applying Event Rules to multiple Lambda targets it only applies to one function. When you edit the rule in the console and update (without change), the rules apply the desired targets correctly.

Reproduction Steps

  • Target > 1 function in rule definition
  • Deploy via CDK Pipeline
  • Verify in Console that lambda_target_2 is missing an event source
  • Edit Rule in EventBridge console
  • Press Update
  • Verify lambda_target_2 function now has an event source
events.Rule(self, "Every1Mins",
	targets=[lambda_target_1, lambda_target_2]

What did you expect to happen?

Event source to be deployed to all defined targets

What actually happened?

As above, one 1 function receives the event source


  • CDK CLI Version : 1.83
  • Framework Version: 1.83
  • Node.js Version: As per aws/codebuild/standard:4.0
  • OS : As per aws/codebuild/standard:4.0
  • Language (Version): Python 3.8

I can confirm, we do have the same issue. As a temp workaround, we created a new rule for each lambda.
