Change log for Amazon Trusted Advisor

See the following topic for recent changes to Trusted Advisor checks.

Note

If you use the Trusted Advisor console or the Amazon Web Services Support API, checks that were removed won't appear in check results. If you use any of the removed checks such as specifying the check ID in an Amazon Web Services Support API operation or your code, you must remove these checks to avoid API call errors.

For more information about the available checks, see the Amazon Trusted Advisor check reference.

Updates to the Trusted Advisor integration with Amazon Security Hub

Trusted Advisor made the following update on November 17, 2022.

If you disable Security Hub or Amazon Config for an Amazon Web Services Region, Trusted Advisor now removes your control findings for that Amazon Web Services Region within 7-9 days. Previously, the time frame to remove your Security Hub data from Trusted Advisor was 90 days.

For more information, see the following sections in the Troubleshooting topic:

Update to the Trusted Advisor console

Trusted Advisor added the following change on November 16, 2022.

The Trusted Advisor Dashboard in the console is now Trusted Advisor Recommendations. The Trusted Advisor Recommendations page still shows the check results and the available checks for each category for your Amazon Web Services account.

This name change only updates the Trusted Advisor console. You can continue to use the Trusted Advisor console and the Trusted Advisor operations in the Amazon Web Services Support API as usual.

For more information, see Get started with Trusted Advisor Recommendations.
