[ aws . imagebuilder ]

list-images

Description

Returns the list of images that you have access to.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-images
[--owner <value>]
[--filters <value>]
[--by-name | --no-by-name]
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--include-deprecated | --no-include-deprecated]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--owner (string)

The owner defines which images you want to list. By default, this request will only show images owned by your account. You can use this field to specify if you want to view images owned by yourself, by Amazon, or those images that have been shared with you by other customers.

Possible values:

  • Self
  • Shared
  • Amazon

--filters (list)

The filters.

(structure)

A filter name and value pair that is used to return a more specific list of results from a list operation. Filters can be used to match a set of resources by specific criteria, such as tags, attributes, or IDs.

name -> (string)

The name of the filter. Filter names are case-sensitive.

values -> (list)

The filter values. Filter values are case-sensitive.

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

name=string,values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "name": "string",
    "values": ["string", ...]
  }
  ...
]

--by-name | --no-by-name (boolean)

Requests a list of images with a specific recipe name.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum items to return in a request.

--next-token (string)

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

--include-deprecated | --no-include-deprecated (boolean)

Includes deprecated images in the response list.

--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 list images

The following list-images example lists all of the semantic versions you have access to.

aws imagebuilder list-images

Output:

{
    "requestId": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111",
    "imageVersionList": [
        {
            "arn": "arn:aws:imagebuilder:us-west-2:123456789012:image/mybasicrecipe/2019.12.03",
            "name": "MyBasicRecipe",
            "version": "2019.12.03",
            "platform": "Windows",
            "owner": "123456789012",
            "dateCreated": "2020-02-14T21:29:18.810Z"
        }
    ]
}

Output

requestId -> (string)

The request ID that uniquely identifies this request.

imageVersionList -> (list)

The list of image semantic versions.

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.

Filtering: When you retrieve or reference a resource with a semantic version, you can use wildcards (x) to filter your results. When you use a wildcard in any node, all nodes to the right of the first wildcard must also be wildcards. For example, specifying "1.2.x", or "1.x.x" works to filter list results, but neither "1.x.2", nor "x.2.x" will work. You do not have to specify the build - Image Builder automatically uses a wildcard for that, if applicable.

(structure)

The defining characteristics of a specific version of an Image Builder image.

arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a specific version of an Image Builder image.

Note

Semantic versioning is included in each object's Amazon Resource Name (ARN), at the level that applies to that object as follows:

  • Versionless ARNs and Name ARNs do not include specific values in any of the nodes. The nodes are either left off entirely, or they are specified as wildcards, for example: x.x.x.
  • Version ARNs have only the first three nodes: <major>.<minor>.<patch>
  • Build version ARNs have all four nodes, and point to a specific build for a specific version of an object.

name -> (string)

The name of this specific version of an Image Builder image.

type -> (string)

Specifies whether this image is an AMI or a container image.

version -> (string)

Details for a specific version of an Image Builder image. 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, and that is not open for updates.

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.

Filtering: When you retrieve or reference a resource with a semantic version, you can use wildcards (x) to filter your results. When you use a wildcard in any node, all nodes to the right of the first wildcard must also be wildcards. For example, specifying "1.2.x", or "1.x.x" works to filter list results, but neither "1.x.2", nor "x.2.x" will work. You do not have to specify the build - Image Builder automatically uses a wildcard for that, if applicable.

platform -> (string)

The platform of the image version, for example "Windows" or "Linux".

osVersion -> (string)

The operating system version of the Amazon EC2 build instance. For example, Amazon Linux 2, Ubuntu 18, or Microsoft Windows Server 2019.

owner -> (string)

The owner of the image version.

dateCreated -> (string)

The date on which this specific version of the Image Builder image was created.

nextToken -> (string)

The next token used for paginated responses. When this is not empty, there are additional elements that the service has not included in this request. Use this token with the next request to retrieve additional objects.
