AWS supported software that extends cloud capabilities to local devices.
End of maintenance for AWS IoT Greengrass Core software v1.11.x Snap
On December 31, 2023, AWS IoT Greengrass will end maintenance for the AWS IoT Greengrass core software version 1.11.x Snap that is published on snapcraft.io
. Devices currently running the Snap will continue to work until further notice. However, the AWS IoT Greengrass core Snap will no longer receive security patches or bug fixes after maintenance ends.
AWS IoT Greengrass seamlessly extends AWS onto edge devices so they can act locally on the data they generate, while still using the cloud for management, analytics, and durable storage.
AWS IoT Greengrass snap v1.11.5 enables you to run a limited version of AWS IoT Greengrass with all necessary dependencies in a containerized environment.
The AWS IoT Greengrass snap doesn’t support connectors and machine learning (ML) inference.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
