Layer / Attribute / install_updates_on_boot


  • (boolean) –

    Whether to install operating system and package updates when the instance boots. The default value is true. If this value is set to false, you must then update your instances manually by using CreateDeployment to run the update_dependencies stack command or manually running yum (Amazon Linux) or apt-get (Ubuntu) on the instances.


    We strongly recommend using the default value of true, to ensure that your instances have the latest security updates.
