Changes This release adds support for Certificate Authority (CA) certificate identifier to managed databases in Amazon Lightsail.
Changes This release adds support for the automatic snapshots add-on for instances and block storage disks.
Changes This release adds the DeleteKnownHostKeys API, which enables Lightsail's browser-based SSH or RDP clients to connect to the instance after a host key mismatch.
Changes This release adds functionality to the CreateDiskSnapshot API that allows users to snapshot instance root volumes. It also adds various documentation updates.
Changes This update adds the following features: 1. Copy instance and disk snapshots within the same AWS Region or from one region to another in Amazon Lightsail. 2. Export Lightsail instance and disk snapshots to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). 3. Create an Amazon EC2 instance from an exported Lightsail instance snapshot using AWS CloudFormation stacks. 4. Apply tags to filter your Lightsail resources, or organize your costs, or control access.
Changes Adds support for Lightsail managed databases.
Changes This release adds support for load balancer and TLS/SSL certificate management. This set of APIs allows customers to create, manage, and scale secure load balanced applications on Lightsail infrastructure. To provide support for customers who manage their DNS on Lightsail, we've added the ability create an Alias A type record which can point to a load balancer DNS name via the CreateDomainEntry API http://docs.aws.amazon.com/lightsail/2016-11-28/api-reference/API_CreateDomainEntry.html.
Changes Lightsail now supports attached block storage, which allows you to scale your applications and protect application data with additional SSD-backed storage disks. This feature allows Lightsail customers to attach secure storage disks to their Lightsail instances and manage their attached disks, including creating and deleting disks, attaching and detaching disks from instances, and backing up disks via snapshot.
Changes This release adds support for Windows Server-based Lightsail instances. The GetInstanceAccessDetails API now returns the password of your Windows Server-based instance when using the default key pair. GetInstanceAccessDetails also returns a PasswordData object for Windows Server instances containing the ciphertext and keyPairName. The Blueprint data type now includes a list of platform values (LINUX_UNIX or WINDOWS). The Bundle data type now includes a list of SupportedPlatforms values (LINUX_UNIX or WINDOWS).
Changes This release adds a new nextPageToken property to the result of the GetOperationsForResource API. Developers can now get the next set of items in a list by making subsequent calls to GetOperationsForResource API with the token from the previous call. This release also deprecates the nextPageCount property, which previously returned null (use the nextPageToken property instead). This release also deprecates the customImageName property on the CreateInstancesRequest class, which was previously ignored by the API.
Changes This release adds new APIs that make it easier to set network port configurations on Lightsail instances. Developers can now make a single request to both open and close public ports on an instance using the PutInstancePublicPorts operation.
Changes An extremely simplified VM creation and management service.
