Initiates the copy of an AMI. You can copy an AMI from one Region to another, or from a Region to an Outpost. You can't copy an AMI from an Outpost to a Region, from one Outpost to another, or within the same Outpost. To copy an AMI to another partition, see CreateStoreImageTask.
To copy an AMI from one Region to another, specify the source Region using the SourceRegion
parameter, and specify the destination Region using its endpoint. Copies of encrypted
backing snapshots for the AMI are encrypted. Copies of unencrypted backing snapshots
remain unencrypted, unless you set
Encrypted during the copy operation.
You cannot create an unencrypted copy of an encrypted backing snapshot.
To copy an AMI from a Region to an Outpost, specify the source Region using the SourceRegion parameter, and specify the ARN of the destination Outpost using DestinationOutpostArn. Backing snapshots copied to an Outpost are encrypted by default using the default encryption key for the Region, or a different key that you specify in the request using KmsKeyId. Outposts do not support unencrypted snapshots. For more information, Amazon EBS local snapshots on Outposts in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.
For more information about the prerequisites and limits when copying an AMI, see Copy an AMI in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.
