DeploySystemInstance - AWS IoT Things Graph


Greengrass and Cloud Deployments

Deploys the system instance to the target specified in CreateSystemInstance.

Greengrass Deployments

If the system or any workflows and entities have been updated before this action is called, then the deployment will create a new Amazon Simple Storage Service resource file and then deploy it.

Since this action creates a Greengrass deployment on the caller's behalf, the calling identity must have write permissions to the specified Greengrass group. Otherwise, the call will fail with an authorization error.

For information about the artifacts that get added to your Greengrass core device when you use this API, see AWS IoT Things Graph and AWS IoT Greengrass.
