Patch Manager, a feature of AWS Systems Manager, now provides a more holistic view of the patch compliance and inventory of your fleet of instances by additionally reporting on stopped instances. This feature helps you to further simplify patch compliance and inventory reporting because information is now readily available for stopped instances.

To get started, navigate to Fleet Manager in the Systems Manager console. From there, you can view stopped instances, including inventory and patch compliance based on the last known state. You can quickly filter the instances to view only running instances using the Instance Status property.

This feature is available in all AWS Regions where AWS Systems Manager is available, excluding Amazon China (Beijing and Ningxia) Regions. For more details about Inventory and Patch Manager, visit the AWS Systems Manager User Guide. To learn more about Systems Manager features, see AWS Systems Manager.
