AWS IoT Device Management Fleet Indexing now provides integration with two additional data sources, AWS IoT Core named shadows and AWS IoT Device Defender detect violations. With this release, supported data sources for Fleet Indexing increased to 5 from 3 (AWS IoT Core registry, shadows, and connectivity lifecycle events). These two additional data sources will help IoT customers who store IoT fleet data across different services and systems and regularly access the data for fleet monitoring, health checks, over-the-air (OTA) updates, and troubleshooting.

Now, customers have more data source flexibility when monitoring and managing their devices from Fleet Indexing or from AWS IoT Device Management Fleet Hub. Customers can now set fleet metric alarms, perform queries, or target devices in their fleet with additional device state and behavior anomaly data. With the additional data sources for Fleet Indexing, customers can spend more time on high-value fleet monitoring, analysis, and troubleshooting and less time on building and maintaining DIY fleet management solutions.

The two additional data sources are available today in preview in all regions where AWS IoT Device Management is available except AWS IoT Device Defender is not available in South America (Sao Paolo) region. For more information, see the Fleet Indexing and Fleet Hub developer guide.
