Optional ClientToken

ClientToken: undefined | string

A unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. Idempotency ensures that an API request completes only once. With an idempotent request, if the original request completes successfully. The subsequent retries with the same client token return the result from the original successful request and they have no additional effect.

If you do not specify a client token, one is automatically generated by the Amazon Web Services SDK.

For more information, see Idempotency for StartSnapshot API in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

Optional Description

Description: undefined | string

A description for the snapshot.

Optional Encrypted

Encrypted: undefined | false | true

Indicates whether to encrypt the snapshot.

You can't specify Encrypted and ParentSnapshotId in the same request. If you specify both parameters, the request fails with ValidationException.

The encryption status of the snapshot depends on the values that you specify for Encrypted, KmsKeyArn, and ParentSnapshotId, and whether your Amazon Web Services account is enabled for encryption by default. For more information, see Using encryption in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

To create an encrypted snapshot, you must have permission to use the KMS key. For more information, see Permissions to use Key Management Service keys in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

Optional KmsKeyArn

KmsKeyArn: undefined | string

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Key Management Service (KMS) key to be used to encrypt the snapshot.

The encryption status of the snapshot depends on the values that you specify for Encrypted, KmsKeyArn, and ParentSnapshotId, and whether your Amazon Web Services account is enabled for encryption by default. For more information, see Using encryption in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

To create an encrypted snapshot, you must have permission to use the KMS key. For more information, see Permissions to use Key Management Service keys in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

Optional ParentSnapshotId

ParentSnapshotId: undefined | string

The ID of the parent snapshot. If there is no parent snapshot, or if you are creating the first snapshot for an on-premises volume, omit this parameter.

You can't specify ParentSnapshotId and Encrypted in the same request. If you specify both parameters, the request fails with ValidationException.

The encryption status of the snapshot depends on the values that you specify for Encrypted, KmsKeyArn, and ParentSnapshotId, and whether your Amazon Web Services account is enabled for encryption by default. For more information, see Using encryption in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

If you specify an encrypted parent snapshot, you must have permission to use the KMS key that was used to encrypt the parent snapshot. For more information, see Permissions to use Key Management Service keys in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

Optional Tags

Tags: Tag[]

The tags to apply to the snapshot.

Optional Timeout

Timeout: undefined | number

The amount of time (in minutes) after which the snapshot is automatically cancelled if:

  • No blocks are written to the snapshot.

  • The snapshot is not completed after writing the last block of data.

If no value is specified, the timeout defaults to 60 minutes.

VolumeSize

VolumeSize: number | undefined

The size of the volume, in GiB. The maximum size is 65536 GiB (64 TiB).
