[ aws . ecr ]



Lists all the image IDs for the specified repository.

You can filter images based on whether or not they are tagged by using the tagStatus filter and specifying either TAGGED , UNTAGGED or ANY . For example, you can filter your results to return only UNTAGGED images and then pipe that result to a BatchDeleteImage operation to delete them. Or, you can filter your results to return only TAGGED images to list all of the tags in your repository.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-images is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: imageIds


[--registry-id <value>]
--repository-name <value>
[--filter <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--registry-id (string)

The Amazon Web Services account ID associated with the registry that contains the repository in which to list images. If you do not specify a registry, the default registry is assumed.

--repository-name (string)

The repository with image IDs to be listed.

--filter (structure)

The filter key and value with which to filter your ListImages results.

tagStatus -> (string)

The tag status with which to filter your ListImages results. You can filter results based on whether they are TAGGED or UNTAGGED .

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "tagStatus": "TAGGED"|"UNTAGGED"|"ANY"

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.


To list the images in a repository

The following list-images example displays a list of the images in the cluster-autoscaler repository.

aws ecr list-images \
    --repository-name cluster-autoscaler


    "imageIds": [
            "imageDigest": "sha256:99c6fb4377e9a420a1eb3b410a951c9f464eff3b7dbc76c65e434e39b94b6570",

            "imageTag": "v1.13.6"


imageIds -> (list)

The list of image IDs for the requested repository.


An object with identifying information for an image in an Amazon ECR repository.

imageDigest -> (string)

The sha256 digest of the image manifest.

imageTag -> (string)

The tag used for the image.

nextToken -> (string)

The nextToken value to include in a future ListImages request. When the results of a ListImages request exceed maxResults , this value can be used to retrieve the next page of results. This value is null when there are no more results to return.
