AWS IoT Greengrass now emits deployment notifications to Amazon EventBridge. Greengrass sends an event every time a Greengrass group deployment changes state. Customers can create EventBridge rules to take actions based on deployment changes. With this new feature, customers can send notifications, capture event information, take corrective action, or initiate other events for deployments.  

For example, customers can create a rule that triggers post-deployment operations such as notifications to personnel and execution of AWS Lambda functions. Other customers may choose to create a rule that logs success and failures to Amazon CloudWatch or another monitoring system. 

This new feature is available to all AWS customers starting today and does not require an update to the Greengrass Core software on the device. For more information about AWS IoT Greengrass, visit our product page.
