CloudWatch Synthetics now supports storing your canary run artifacts, including log files, screenshots, and HAR files, in an Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket in another Region with a new major runtime version, syn-nodejs-puppeteer-3.0. CloudWatch Synthetics now also supports upgraded major versions of the Puppeteer, Chromium, and Node.js dependencies.
Canaries are modular, lightweight scripts that you can configure to run on a schedule in order to monitor your endpoints and APIs from the outside-in. Canaries simulate the same actions as a user, which makes it possible for you to monitor your user experience continuously. You can now use the new major runtime version, syn-nodejs-puppeteer-3.0 to take advantage of dependencies in Puppeteer 5.5.0, Node.js 12.x, and Chromium 88.0.x.
