On December 31, 2019 the Node community will stop support for Node.js 8.x and will provide no further bug fixes, improvements or security updates after this date. In order to ensure you continue to run on a supported and secure runtime environment, AWS recommends updating to a more recent runtime version and will be deprecating the Node.js 8.x runtime in the following two stages.
- Starting on January 6, 2019 AWS customers will no longer be able to create new functions using the Node.js 8.x runtime.
- Starting on February 3, 2020 AWS customer will no longer be able to update functions, which use the Node.js 8.x runtime, however, functions will continue to process invocation events.
Sumo Logic does not believe there to be any potential compatibility issues with the running of existing functions under the Node.js 10.x runtime, however, we are in the process of validating this compatibility. Sumo Logic will be completing validation and providing updated blueprints and applications by December 15, 2019, ahead of the deprecation date.
If prior to Sumo Logic's validation and release updates you decide to update your existing function runtimes to Node.js 10.x we recommend that prior to updating any production level function this update is performed within your test environments to ensure operation continues normally.
