Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Greengrass Command Line Interface

The Greengrass Command Line Interface (CLI) lets you interact with Amazon IoT Greengrass Core on your device to locally develop components and debug issues. For example, you can use the Greengrass CLI to create a local deployment and restart a component on the core device.

Deploy the Greengrass CLI component (aws.greengrass.Cli) to install the Greengrass CLI on your core device.


We recommend that you use this component in only development environments, not production environments. This component provides access to information and operations that you typically won't need in a production environment. Follow the principle of least privilege by deploying this component to only core devices where you need it.
