Class CreateImageCommand

Creates an Amazon EBS-backed AMI from an Amazon EBS-backed instance that is either running or stopped.

By default, when Amazon EC2 creates the new AMI, it reboots the instance so that it can take snapshots of the attached volumes while data is at rest, in order to ensure a consistent state. You can set the NoReboot parameter to true in the API request, or use the --no-reboot option in the CLI to prevent Amazon EC2 from shutting down and rebooting the instance.

If you choose to bypass the shutdown and reboot process by setting the NoReboot parameter to true in the API request, or by using the --no-reboot option in the CLI, we can't guarantee the file system integrity of the created image.

If you customized your instance with instance store volumes or Amazon EBS volumes in addition to the root device volume, the new AMI contains block device mapping information for those volumes. When you launch an instance from this new AMI, the instance automatically launches with those additional volumes.

For more information, see Create an Amazon EBS-backed Linux AMI in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

example

Use a bare-bones client and the command you need to make an API call.

import { EC2Client, CreateImageCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-ec2"; // ES Modules import
// const { EC2Client, CreateImageCommand } = require("@aws-sdk/client-ec2"); // CommonJS import
const client = new EC2Client(config);
const command = new CreateImageCommand(input);
const response = await client.send(command);
