.NET Framework 4.5
Container for the parameters to the CreateImage operation. Creates an Amazon EBS-backed AMI from an Amazon EBS-backed instance that is either running or stopped.

If you customized your instance with instance store volumes or EBS volumes in addition to the root device volume, the new AMI contains block device mapping information for those volumes. When you launch an instance from this new AMI, the instance automatically launches with those additional volumes.

For more information, see Creating Amazon EBS-Backed Linux AMIs in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

public class CreateImageRequest : AmazonEC2Request

The CreateImageRequest type exposes the following members


Public Method CreateImageRequest() Empty constructor used to set properties independently even when a simple constructor is available
Public Method CreateImageRequest(string, string) Instantiates CreateImageRequest with the parameterized properties


Public Property BlockDeviceMappings System.Collections.Generic.List<Amazon.EC2.Model.BlockDeviceMapping> Gets and sets the property BlockDeviceMappings.

Information about one or more block device mappings.

Public Property Description System.String Gets and sets the property Description.

A description for the new image.

Public Property InstanceId System.String Gets and sets the property InstanceId.

The ID of the instance.

Public Property Name System.String Gets and sets the property Name.

A name for the new image.

Constraints: 3-128 alphanumeric characters, parentheses (()), square brackets ([]), spaces ( ), periods (.), slashes (/), dashes (-), single quotes ('), at-signs (@), or underscores(_)

Public Property NoReboot System.Boolean Gets and sets the property NoReboot.

By default, this parameter is set to false, which means Amazon EC2 attempts to shut down the instance cleanly before image creation and then reboots the instance. When the parameter is set to true, Amazon EC2 doesn't shut down the instance before creating the image. When this option is used, file system integrity on the created image can't be guaranteed.
