Amazon Forecast
Developer Guide

This is prerelease documentation for a service in preview release. It is subject to change.

As of 6/6/19, Amazon Forecast no longer supports the following recipes: DeepAR, MDN, MLP, MQRNN, RFQR, and SQF. You can continue to use predictors created with these recipes to generate forecasts. However, you can’t use these recipes to create new predictors or to update existing predictors with new data. In addition, AutoML no longer considers these recipes. We’ve made these changes to ensure that Forecast offers the highest level of accuracy and robustness. We continue to support the ARIMA, DeepAR+, ETS, NPTS, and Prophet recipes.
