Guides / Update Guides / Releases / 2016-11

This page is lists all the updates to the Gruntwork Infrastructure as Code Library that were released in 2016-11. For instructions on how to use these updates in your code, check out the updating documentation.

Here are the repos that were updated:



Published: 11/4/2016 | Release notes

  • Update to a new version of the AWS golang SDK that should support IAM Roles for ECS Tasks.



Published: 11/15/2016 | Release notes

  • Undo the fix in configure-environment-for-gruntwork-module from the previous release because, apprently, only Terraform 0.7.7 dropped the "v" in the versioning scheme (0.7.7 and not v0.7.7). All the versions after that have re-added the "v", so this release updates the script to handle it again.

  • ENHANCEMENT: Many of the CloudWatch Alarms now expose parameters for the setting the Evaluation Periods and Statistic properties to allow finer-grained control by customers.
  • The Evaluation Periods property is the number of periods over which a CloudWatch metric's data is compared to a given threshold.
  • The Statistic property is the statistic to apply to a CloudWatch Alarm's associated metric. Acceptable Values are SampleCount, Average, Sum, Minimum, or Maximum.
  • TWEAK: Many Amazon services report CloudWatch metrics every 60 seconds, and the CloudWatch Alarms now reflect that period where applicable as a default.
