[ aws . lightsail ]



Returns the bundles that you can apply to an Amazon Lightsail instance when you create it.

A bundle describes the specifications of an instance, such as the monthly cost, amount of memory, the number of vCPUs, amount of storage space, and monthly network data transfer quota.


Bundles are referred to as instance plans in the Lightsail console.

See also: AWS API Documentation

get-bundles 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: bundles


[--include-inactive | --no-include-inactive]
[--app-category <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--endpoint-url <value>]
[--output <value>]
[--query <value>]
[--profile <value>]
[--region <value>]
[--version <value>]
[--color <value>]
[--ca-bundle <value>]
[--cli-read-timeout <value>]
[--cli-connect-timeout <value>]


--include-inactive | --no-include-inactive (boolean)

A Boolean value that indicates whether to include inactive (unavailable) bundles in the response of your request.

--app-category (string)

Returns a list of bundles that are specific to Lightsail for Research.


You must use this parameter to view Lightsail for Research bundles.

Possible values:

  • LfR

--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 .

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.



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 get the bundles for new instances

The following get-bundles example displays details about all of the available bundles that can be used to create new instances in Amazon Lightsail.

bundles -> (list)

An array of key-value pairs that contains information about the available bundles.


Describes a bundle, which is a set of specs describing your virtual private server (or instance ).

price -> (float)

The price in US dollars (5.0 ) of the bundle.

cpuCount -> (integer)

The number of vCPUs included in the bundle (2 ).

diskSizeInGb -> (integer)

The size of the SSD (30 ).

bundleId -> (string)

The bundle ID (micro_x_x ).

instanceType -> (string)

The instance type (micro ).

isActive -> (boolean)

A Boolean value indicating whether the bundle is active.

name -> (string)

A friendly name for the bundle (Micro ).

power -> (integer)

A numeric value that represents the power of the bundle (500 ). You can use the bundle's power value in conjunction with a blueprint's minimum power value to determine whether the blueprint will run on the bundle. For example, you need a bundle with a power value of 500 or more to create an instance that uses a blueprint with a minimum power value of 500.

ramSizeInGb -> (float)

The amount of RAM in GB (2.0 ).

transferPerMonthInGb -> (integer)

The data transfer rate per month in GB (2000 ).

supportedPlatforms -> (list)

The operating system platform (Linux/Unix-based or Windows Server-based) that the bundle supports. You can only launch a WINDOWS bundle on a blueprint that supports the WINDOWS platform. LINUX_UNIX blueprints require a LINUX_UNIX bundle.


supportedAppCategories -> (list)

Virtual computer blueprints that are supported by a Lightsail for Research bundle.


This parameter only applies to Lightsail for Research resources.


publicIpv4AddressCount -> (integer)

An integer that indicates the public ipv4 address count included in the bundle, the value is either 0 or 1.

nextPageToken -> (string)

The token to advance to the next page of results from your request.

A next page token is not returned if there are no more results to display.

To get the next page of results, perform another GetBundles request and specify the next page token using the pageToken parameter.
