CreateWorkspaces - Amazon WorkSpaces Service


Creates one or more WorkSpaces.

This operation is asynchronous and returns before the WorkSpaces are created.

  • The MANUAL running mode value is only supported by Amazon WorkSpaces Core. Contact your account team to be allow-listed to use this value. For more information, see Amazon WorkSpaces Core.

  • You don't need to specify the PCOIP protocol for Linux bundles because WSP is the default protocol for those bundles.

  • User-decoupled WorkSpaces are only supported by Amazon WorkSpaces Core.

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.


Information about the WorkSpaces that could not be created.

Type: Array of FailedCreateWorkspaceRequest objects


Information about the WorkSpaces that were created.

Because this operation is asynchronous, the identifier returned is not immediately available for use with other operations. For example, if you call DescribeWorkspaces before the WorkSpace is created, the information returned can be incomplete.

Type: Array of Workspace objects
