Amazon Elasticsearch Service now offers self-service updates, giving you the flexibility to control when to update your domains. You can now update your domain with a single click. Previously, new product features and enhancements were deployed on a rolling schedule. With self-service updates, you can adopt new features as they arrive and update your domains at the time of your choosing. To see when an update is available for your domain, you can simply log in to the Amazon Elasticsearch Service console or check with the REST API. 

If you take no action, we will automatically update your domains after the date and time specified in the update. Self-service updates are available today for all domains. To learn more, see the documentation
