[ aws . imagebuilder ]

create-component

Description

Creates a new component that can be used to build, validate, test, and assess your image. The component is based on a YAML document that you specify using exactly one of the following methods:

  • Inline, using the data property in the request body.
  • A URL that points to a YAML document file stored in Amazon S3, using the uri property in the request body.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

[--kms-key-id <value>]
[--tags <value>]
[--client-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

The name of the component.

--semantic-version (string)

The semantic version of the component. This version follows the semantic version syntax.

Note

The semantic version has four nodes: <major>.<minor>.<patch>/<build>. You can assign values for the first three, and can filter on all of them.

Assignment: For the first three nodes you can assign any positive integer value, including zero, with an upper limit of 2^30-1, or 1073741823 for each node. Image Builder automatically assigns the build number to the fourth node.

Patterns: You can use any numeric pattern that adheres to the assignment requirements for the nodes that you can assign. For example, you might choose a software version pattern, such as 1.0.0, or a date, such as 2021.01.01.

--description (string)

The description of the component. Describes the contents of the component.

--change-description (string)

The change description of the component. Describes what change has been made in this version, or what makes this version different from other versions of this component.

--platform (string)

The platform of the component.

Possible values:

  • Windows
  • Linux

--supported-os-versions (list)

The operating system (OS) version supported by the component. If the OS information is available, a prefix match is performed against the base image OS version during image recipe creation.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--data (string)

Component data contains inline YAML document content for the component. Alternatively, you can specify the uri of a YAML document file stored in Amazon S3. However, you cannot specify both properties.

--uri (string)

The uri of a YAML component document file. This must be an S3 URL (s3://bucket/key ), and the requester must have permission to access the S3 bucket it points to. If you use Amazon S3, you can specify component content up to your service quota.

Alternatively, you can specify the YAML document inline, using the component data property. You cannot specify both properties.

--kms-key-id (string)

The ID of the KMS key that should be used to encrypt this component.

--tags (map)

The tags of the component.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--client-token (string)

The idempotency token of the component.

--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.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To create a component

The following create-component example creates a component that uses a JSON document file and references a component document in YAML format that is uploaded to an Amazon S3 bucket.

aws imagebuilder create-component \
    --cli-input-json file://create-component.json

Contents of create-component.json:

{
    "name": "MyExampleComponent",
    "semanticVersion": "2019.12.02",
    "description": "An example component that builds, validates and tests an image",
    "changeDescription": "Initial version.",
    "platform": "Windows",
    "uri": "s3://s3-bucket-name/s3-bucket-path/component.yaml"
}

Output:

{
    "requestId": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111",
    "clientToken": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE22222",
    "componentBuildVersionArn": "arn:aws:imagebuilder:us-west-2:123456789012:component/examplecomponent/2019.12.02/1"
}

Output

requestId -> (string)

The request ID that uniquely identifies this request.

clientToken -> (string)

The idempotency token used to make this request idempotent.

componentBuildVersionArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the component that was created by this request.
