Announcing enhanced troubleshooting for Elastigroup shutdown scripts

Today we announce enhanced troubleshooting by enabling better visibility and transparency into our shutdown script. Elastigroup shutdown scripts let customers perform custom actions on an instance prior to its termination.

Previously, when configuring a shutdown script for your instances, it was difficult to track whether the script actually executed, or what were the execution results.

Now, the shutdown script’s output is reported to the relevant group’s Elastilog and can be viewed at all times. To find the shutdown script logs, simply navigate to the relevant Elastigroup view in the Spotinst console, and click on the Elastilog tab.
