AWS IoT Device Defender announces the General Availability (GA) of the Dimensions feature that enables customers to filter the metrics that Device Defender Detect evaluates by MQTT topic. Dimensions supports the following cloud-side metrics: number of messages received, message byte size, number of messages sent, source IP, and number of authorization failures. 

Customers can define Dimensions as static MQTT topics, wildcard MQTT topics, or MQTT topics containing the client ID substitution variable ‘${iot:ClientId}’.  

Dimensions is available today in all regions where AWS IoT Device Defender is available. Learn more about AWS IoT Device Defender on our product page, and for more information about this new feature, see the Dimensions documentation.
