Step 4: Update the Amazon IoT Greengrass token exchange role and install SSM Agent on your edge devices

The final step for setting up and configuring your Amazon IoT Greengrass core devices for Systems Manager requires you to update the Amazon IoT Greengrass Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) device service role, also called the token exchange role, and deploy Amazon Systems Manager Agent (SSM Agent) to your Amazon IoT Greengrass devices. Both processes are described in detail in the Amazon IoT Greengrass Version 2 Developer Guide. For more information, see Install the Amazon Systems Manager Agent.

After you deploy SSM Agent to your devices, Amazon IoT Greengrass automatically registers your devices with Systems Manager. No additional registration is necessary. You can begin using Systems Manager capabilities to access, manage, and configure your Amazon IoT Greengrass devices.

Note

Your edge devices must be able to communicate with the Systems Manager service in the cloud. Systems Manager doesn't support disconnected edge devices.
