list-compatible-images

Description

This action returns a list of the different Amazon EC2 Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) that are owned by your AWS account that would be supported for use on a Snowball Edge device. Currently, supported AMIs are based on the CentOS 7 (x86_64) - with Updates HVM, Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS (HVM), and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - Xenial (HVM) images, available on the AWS Marketplace.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-compatible-images
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results for the list of compatible images. Currently, a Snowball Edge device can store 10 AMIs.

--next-token (string)

HTTP requests are stateless. To identify what object comes "next" in the list of compatible images, you can specify a value for NextToken as the starting point for your list of returned images.

--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.

Output

CompatibleImages -> (list)

A JSON-formatted object that describes a compatible AMI, including the ID and name for a Snowball Edge AMI.

(structure)

A JSON-formatted object that describes a compatible Amazon Machine Image (AMI), including the ID and name for a Snowball Edge AMI. This AMI is compatible with the device's physical hardware requirements, and it should be able to be run in an SBE1 instance on the device.

AmiId -> (string)

The unique identifier for an individual Snowball Edge AMI.

Name -> (string)

The optional name of a compatible image.

NextToken -> (string)

Because HTTP requests are stateless, this is the starting point for your next list of returned images.
