Setting minor version of elastic beanstalk node.js platform

0

These docs: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/platforms/platform-history-nodejs.html note the different minor versions of node.js that are available for a given platform version (like Node.js 12 AL2 version 5.4.8). How do you set the minor version you will be using (like v12.20.2?)

thanks!

Each Node.js platform version supports a few Node.js language versions. Valid Node.js versions, as well as the default version. Each Node.js version includes a respective version of npm (the Node.js package manager).

On Amazon Linux 2 platform versions, only the default Node.js version is pre-installed. You can use a package.json file in the root of your project source to specify the Node.js version you want your application to use. Refer to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/dg/nodejs-platform-packagejson.html

On Amazon Linux AMI platform versions (preceding Amazon Linux 2), all listed Node.js versions that a platform version supports are pre-installed on it. The default Node.js version applies when the NodeVersion option in the aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:nodejs namespace isn't set. Refer to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/dg/command-options-specific.html#command-options-nodejs
