AWS Cloudformation Template Too Large for Serverless

Good afternoon … I’m running into an issue when trying to deploy my Serverless project after adding CloudWatch alarms to my resources. The reason for the issue is that when passing --template-body you are only allowed to have templates of size 51,200b or smaller. If you use provide a --template-url you are allowed up to 1mb.

Is there a way to a) skip the Serverless pre-flight validation check and b) use S3 as the mechanism for providing the template to CloudFormation?

Apologies. Looking at the output of deploy it appears that serverless already uses S3. Not sure how to delete this post but will try as it isn’t much use to anyone.

Thanks for the great software and forum!
