--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

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 .

--source-fpga-image-id (string)

The ID of the source AFI.

--description (string)

The description for the new AFI.

--name (string)

The name for the new AFI. The default is the name of the source AFI.

--source-region (string)

The Region that contains the source AFI.

--client-token (string)

Unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. For more information, see Ensuring idempotency .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

This example copies the specified AFI from the us-east-1 region to the current region (eu-west-1).


aws ec2 copy-fpga-image --name copy-afi --source-fpga-image-id afi-0d123e123bfc85abc --source-region us-east-1 --region eu-west-1


  "FpgaImageId": "afi-06b12350a123fbabc"


FpgaImageId -> (string)

The ID of the new AFI.
