The dynamical spin susceptibility in the new-structure iron-based superconductor CaKFe$$_{4}$$As$$_{4}$$ was investigated by a combination of inelastic neutron scattering (INS) measurements and random phase approximation (RPA) calculations. Powder INS measurements show that the spin resonance at Q$$_{rm res}$$ = 1.17(1) ${AA}$ vector in the tetragonal notation, evolves below Tc. The characteristic energy of the spin resonance E$$_{rm res}$$ = 12.5 meV is smaller than twice the size of the superconducting gap (2$$Delta$$). The broad energy feature of the dynamical susceptibility of the spin resonance can be explained by the RPA calculations which take into account the different superconducting gaps on the different Fermi surfaces. Our INS and PRA studies demonstrated that the superconducting pairing nature in CaKFe$$_{4}$$As$$_{4}$$ is the s$$pm$$ symmetry.
