Cancel deployments - AWS IoT Greengrass

Cancel deployments

You can cancel an active deployment to prevent its software components from installing on AWS IoT Greengrass core devices. If you cancel a deployment that targets a thing group, core devices that you add to the group won't receive that continuous deployment. If a core device already runs the deployment, you won't change the components on that device when you cancel the deployment. You must create a new deployment or revise the deployment to modify the components that run on the core devices that received the canceled deployment.

To cancel a deployment (AWS CLI)

  1. Run the following command to find the ID of the latest deployment revision for a target. The latest revision is the only deployment that can be active for a target, because previous deployments cancel when you create a new revision. Replace targetArn with the ARN of the target AWS IoT thing or thing group.

    aws greengrassv2 list-deployments --target-arn targetArn

    The response contains a list with the latest deployment for the target. Copy the deploymentId from the response to use in the next step.

  2. Run the following command to cancel the deployment. Replace deploymentId with the ID from the previous step.

    aws greengrassv2 cancel-deployment --deployment-id deploymentId

    If the operation succeeds, the deployment status changes to CANCELED.
