Options

--name (string)

The name of the image pipeline.

--description (string)

The description of the image pipeline.

--image-recipe-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the image recipe that will be used to configure images created by this image pipeline.

--infrastructure-configuration-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the infrastructure configuration that will be used to build images created by this image pipeline.

--distribution-configuration-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the distribution configuration that will be used to configure and distribute images created by this image pipeline.

--image-tests-configuration (structure)

The image test configuration of the image pipeline.

Shorthand Syntax:

imageTestsEnabled=boolean,timeoutMinutes=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "imageTestsEnabled": true|false,
  "timeoutMinutes": integer
}

--enhanced-image-metadata-enabled | --no-enhanced-image-metadata-enabled (boolean)

Collects additional information about the image being created, including the operating system (OS) version and package list. This information is used to enhance the overall experience of using EC2 Image Builder. Enabled by default.

--schedule (structure)

The schedule of the image pipeline.

Shorthand Syntax:

scheduleExpression=string,pipelineExecutionStartCondition=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "scheduleExpression": "string",
  "pipelineExecutionStartCondition": "EXPRESSION_MATCH_ONLY"|"EXPRESSION_MATCH_AND_DEPENDENCY_UPDATES_AVAILABLE"
}

--status (string)

The status of the image pipeline.

Possible values:

  • DISABLED
  • ENABLED

--tags (map)

The tags of the image pipeline.

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

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

--client-token (string)

The idempotency token used to make this request idempotent.

--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

To create an image pipeline

The following create-image-pipeline example creates an image pipeline using a JSON file.

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

Contents of create-image-pipeline.json:
