Options

--name (string)

The name of the image pipeline.

--description (string)

The description of the image pipeline.

--image-recipe-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the image recipe that will be used to configure images created by this image pipeline.

--container-recipe-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the container recipe that is used to configure images created by this container pipeline.

--infrastructure-configuration-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the infrastructure configuration that will be used to build images created by this image pipeline.

--distribution-configuration-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the distribution configuration that will be used to configure and distribute images created by this image pipeline.

--image-tests-configuration (structure)

The image test configuration of the image pipeline.

imageTestsEnabled -> (boolean)

Determines if tests should run after building the image. Image Builder defaults to enable tests to run following the image build, before image distribution.

timeoutMinutes -> (integer)

The maximum time in minutes that tests are permitted to run.

Shorthand Syntax:

imageTestsEnabled=boolean,timeoutMinutes=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "imageTestsEnabled": true|false,
  "timeoutMinutes": integer
}

--enhanced-image-metadata-enabled | --no-enhanced-image-metadata-enabled (boolean)

Collects additional information about the image being created, including the operating system (OS) version and package list. This information is used to enhance the overall experience of using EC2 Image Builder. Enabled by default.

--schedule (structure)

The schedule of the image pipeline.

scheduleExpression -> (string)

The cron expression determines how often EC2 Image Builder evaluates your pipelineExecutionStartCondition .

For information on how to format a cron expression in Image Builder, see Use cron expressions in EC2 Image Builder .

timezone -> (string)

The timezone that applies to the scheduling expression. For example, "Etc/UTC", "America/Los_Angeles" in the IANA timezone format . If not specified this defaults to UTC.

pipelineExecutionStartCondition -> (string)

The condition configures when the pipeline should trigger a new image build. When the pipelineExecutionStartCondition is set to EXPRESSION_MATCH_AND_DEPENDENCY_UPDATES_AVAILABLE , and you use semantic version filters on the base image or components in your image recipe, EC2 Image Builder will build a new image only when there are new versions of the image or components in your recipe that match the semantic version filter. When it is set to EXPRESSION_MATCH_ONLY , it will build a new image every time the CRON expression matches the current time. For semantic version syntax, see CreateComponent in the EC2 Image Builder API Reference .

Shorthand Syntax:

scheduleExpression=string,timezone=string,pipelineExecutionStartCondition=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "scheduleExpression": "string",
  "timezone": "string",
  "pipelineExecutionStartCondition": "EXPRESSION_MATCH_ONLY"|"EXPRESSION_MATCH_AND_DEPENDENCY_UPDATES_AVAILABLE"
}

--status (string)

The status of the image pipeline.

Possible values:

  • DISABLED
  • ENABLED

--tags (map)

The tags of the image pipeline.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--client-token (string)

The idempotency token used to make this request idempotent.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To create an image pipeline

The following create-image-pipeline example creates an image pipeline using a JSON file.

aws imagebuilder create-image-pipeline \
    --cli-input-json file://create-image-pipeline.json

Contents of create-image-pipeline.json:

{
    "name": "MyWindows2016Pipeline",
    "description": "Builds Windows 2016 Images",
    "imageRecipeArn": "arn:aws:imagebuilder:us-west-2:123456789012:image-recipe/mybasicrecipe/2019.12.03",
