GetConnectivityInfo - AWS IoT Greengrass


Retrieves connectivity information for a Greengrass core device.

Connectivity information includes endpoints and ports where client devices can connect to an MQTT broker on the core device. When a client device calls the AWS IoT Greengrass discovery API, AWS IoT Greengrass returns connectivity information for all of the core devices where the client device can connect.
