Amazon Systems Manager Patch Manager now makes it easier to create patch compliance reports by providing a catalog of all patches released for Amazon Linux and Amazon Linux 2. You can now list all released patches for Amazon Linux and Amazon Linux 2 even if they are not applicable to your fleet based on your patch rules. Further, you can view additional details such as severity, release date, and vulnerability identifier (CVE-ID) for patches in the catalog.
To get started, open the Amazon Systems Manager console, choose “Patch Manager” in the navigation pane, and navigate to the “Patches” tab to view catalog of released patches for Amazon Linux and Amazon Linux 2, in addition to Windows.
This feature is available at no additional charge in all Amazon Web Services Regions where Amazon Systems Manager Patch Manager is supported, including in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD. For more details about Patch Manager, see the Amazon Systems Manager product page and documentation.
