Creates a launch template.

A launch template contains the parameters to launch an instance. When you launch an instance using RunInstances, you can specify a launch template instead of providing the launch parameters in the request. For more information, see Launch an instance from a launch template in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

To clone an existing launch template as the basis for a new launch template, use the Amazon EC2 console. The API, SDKs, and CLI do not support cloning a template. For more information, see Create a launch template from an existing launch template in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.


This is an asynchronous operation using the standard naming convention for .NET 4.5 or higher. For .NET 3.5 the operation is implemented as a pair of methods using the standard naming convention of BeginCreateLaunchTemplate and EndCreateLaunchTemplate.
