DescribeFpgaImages - Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud


Describes the Amazon FPGA Images (AFIs) available to you. These include public AFIs, private AFIs that you own, and AFIs owned by other AWS accounts for which you have load permissions.

Request Parameters

The following parameters are for this specific action. For more information about required and optional parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Query Parameters.


Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation. Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation.

Type: Boolean

Required: No


The filters.

  • create-time - The creation time of the AFI.

  • fpga-image-id - The FPGA image identifier (AFI ID).

  • fpga-image-global-id - The global FPGA image identifier (AGFI ID).

  • name - The name of the AFI.

  • owner-id - The AWS account ID of the AFI owner.

  • product-code - The product code.

  • shell-version - The version of the AWS Shell that was used to create the bitstream.

  • state - The state of the AFI (pending | failed | available | unavailable).

  • tag:<key> - The key/value combination of a tag assigned to the resource. Use the tag key in the filter name and the tag value as the filter value. For example, to find all resources that have a tag with the key Owner and the value TeamA, specify tag:Owner for the filter name and TeamA for the filter value.

  • tag-key - The key of a tag assigned to the resource. Use this filter to find all resources assigned a tag with a specific key, regardless of the tag value.

  • update-time - The time of the most recent update.
