To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

Properties

BlockDeviceMappings

The block device mapping.

Required: No

Type: List of BlockDeviceMapping

Update requires: No interruption

CapacityReservationSpecification

Required: No

Type: CapacityReservationSpecification

Update requires: No interruption

CpuOptions

The CPU options for the instance. For more information, see Optimizing CPU Options in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

DisableApiTermination

If you set this parameter to true, you can't terminate the instance using the Amazon EC2 console, CLI, or API; otherwise, you can. To change this attribute after launch, use ModifyInstanceAttribute. Alternatively, if you set InstanceInitiatedShutdownBehavior to terminate, you can terminate the instance by running the shutdown command from the instance.

EbsOptimized

Indicates whether the instance is optimized for Amazon EBS I/O.
