Update your Amazon Web Services CloudFormation template

To update your CloudFormation Template (CFT), you must do as follows:

  1. Verify your Kubernetes version.
  2. Update your CloudFormation template.
  3. Verify your Kubernetes version again, to make sure it's updated.

Verify your Kubernetes version

You must verify your Kubernetes version before and after the CloudFormation template update.

To verify your Kubernetes version, do as follows:

  1. In AWS, go to Cloudformation > Stacks, then go to your AWS gateway's root Cloud Formation stack.
  2. Click Parameters, then copy the EKSClusterName.
  3. Go to Elastic Kubernetes Service > Clusters.
  4. Click the Elastic Kubernetes Service cluster name you copied earlier.
  5. Check the Kubernetes version. Example: 1.22.

After you update the CloudFormation template, you'll see the Kubernetes version updated too. Example: 1.23.

Update your CloudFormation template

To update your CloudFormation template, do as follows:

  1. In Central, go to ZTNA > Gateways > Gateway details and click the gateway name.

    You'll see the Cloud gateway release version.

  2. Under Gateway summary, click the version link.


    If there's an update available, you'll see a green arrow next to the version link.

  6. In AWS, go to Cloudformation > Stacks. Under Stack info, click Update.

    This replaces the current CloudFormation template.


    Make sure you update the root stack.
