Amazon IoT is excited to announce the preview of “Job Templates” for Amazon IoT Device Management Jobs. Job Templates make deploying remote actions faster, easier, and more secure. IoT developers and fleet administrators can pre-define the remote operations to be executed on their IoT devices, and specify key deployment parameters like rollout rates, abort thresholds, and timeout criteria. Fleet operators and technicians who focus on fleet monitoring and troubleshooting can identify and select specific groups of devices as targets, and use these pre-defined Job Templates to securely deploy remote actions to their targets.

IoT Developers and Fleet Administrators can use the Amazon IoT Console or CLI to create Job Templates. These templates can be created either from scratch, or by using metadata from a previous successful Job run. Once created, they can use Job Templates to deploy remote actions directly from the Amazon IoT Console, or their fleet management applications - with no additional code.

Job Templates will be available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. They will be free to create. When you deploy Job Templates to your devices, you will be charged per remote action as specified on our pricing page. To get started with creating and using Job Templates, visit the Amazon IoT Console or use the Amazon CLI.
