NoReboot

A boolean literal.

By default, Amazon EC2 attempts to shut down and reboot the instance before creating the image. If the No Reboot option 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.

If you do not want the instance to run after you create an AMI image from it, first use the aws:changeInstanceState – Change or assert instance state action to stop the instance, and then use this aws:createImage action with the NoReboot option set to true.

Type: Boolean

Required: No

BlockDeviceMappings

The block devices for the instance.

Type: Map

Required: No

Output
