Linux EDR supports an automatic schedule for upgrading plugins. This allows plugins to be maintained at the latest release without the hassle of manual plugin management. Automatic Upgrades can also be disabled.
New customers after February 2021 or sensor version 1.2.0+ will have Automatic Upgrades of plugins be enabled by default. This ensures our latest capabilities are delivered to customers quickly.
Existing customers will receive a communication with opt-out instructions, prior to Automatic Upgrades being enabled. If you wish to opt-out of this feature please contact us via your Slack channel (if provisioned) or submit a request to email@example.com.
Enabling Sensor Auto-Upgrade
The auto-upgrading sensor package is named cwp. To install it, first uninstall the existing package (previous packages are named canary-forwarder or canary_forwarder) then install the auto-upgrading package.
Note: These steps are relevant if there is an existing deployment of the sensor as either canary-forwarder or canary_forwarder. New deployments using the cwp package do not have additional steps.
sudo apt remove canary-forwarder
sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cwp
RHEL/Centos 6, 7, 8
sudo yum remove -y canary_forwarder
sudo yum install -y cwp
