create-reserved-instances-listing

Description

Creates a listing for Amazon EC2 Standard Reserved Instances to be sold in the Reserved Instance Marketplace. You can submit one Standard Reserved Instance listing at a time. To get a list of your Standard Reserved Instances, you can use the describe-reserved-instances operation.

Note

Only Standard Reserved Instances with a capacity reservation can be sold in the Reserved Instance Marketplace. Convertible Reserved Instances and Standard Reserved Instances with a regional benefit cannot be sold.

The Reserved Instance Marketplace matches sellers who want to resell Standard Reserved Instance capacity that they no longer need with buyers who want to purchase additional capacity. Reserved Instances bought and sold through the Reserved Instance Marketplace work like any other Reserved Instances.

To sell your Standard Reserved Instances, you must first register as a seller in the Reserved Instance Marketplace. After completing the registration process, you can create a Reserved Instance Marketplace listing of some or all of your Standard Reserved Instances, and specify the upfront price to receive for them. Your Standard Reserved Instance listings then become available for purchase. To view the details of your Standard Reserved Instance listing, you can use the describe-reserved-instances-listings operation.

For more information, see Reserved Instance Marketplace in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .
