--name <value>
[--appstream-agent-version <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--name (string)

The name of the image builder.

--appstream-agent-version (string)

The version of the AppStream 2.0 agent to use for this image builder. To use the latest version of the AppStream 2.0 agent, specify [LATEST].

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


ImageBuilder -> (structure)

Information about the image builder.

Name -> (string)

The name of the image builder.

Arn -> (string)

The ARN for the image builder.

ImageArn -> (string)

The ARN of the image from which this builder was created.

Description -> (string)

The description to display.

DisplayName -> (string)

The image builder name to display.

VpcConfig -> (structure)

The VPC configuration of the image builder.

SubnetIds -> (list)

The identifiers of the subnets to which a network interface is attached from the fleet instance or image builder instance. Fleet instances use one or more subnets. Image builder instances use one subnet.


SecurityGroupIds -> (list)

The identifiers of the security groups for the fleet or image builder.


InstanceType -> (string)

The instance type for the image builder. The following instance types are available:

  • stream.standard.medium

  • stream.standard.large

  • stream.compute.large

  • stream.compute.xlarge

  • stream.compute.2xlarge

  • stream.compute.4xlarge

  • stream.compute.8xlarge

  • stream.memory.large

  • stream.memory.xlarge

  • stream.memory.2xlarge

  • stream.memory.4xlarge

  • stream.memory.8xlarge

  • stream.graphics-design.large

  • stream.graphics-design.xlarge

  • stream.graphics-design.2xlarge

  • stream.graphics-design.4xlarge

  • stream.graphics-desktop.2xlarge

  • stream.graphics-pro.4xlarge

  • stream.graphics-pro.8xlarge

  • stream.graphics-pro.16xlarge

Platform -> (string)

The operating system platform of the image builder.

IamRoleArn -> (string)

The ARN of the IAM role that is applied to the image builder. To assume a role, the image builder calls the AWS Security Token Service (STS) AssumeRole API operation and passes the ARN of the role to use. The operation creates a new session with temporary credentials. AppStream 2.0 retrieves the temporary credentials and creates the AppStream_Machine_Role credential profile on the instance.

For more information, see Using an IAM Role to Grant Permissions to Applications and Scripts Running on AppStream 2.0 Streaming Instances in the Amazon AppStream 2.0 Administration Guide .

State -> (string)

The state of the image builder.

StateChangeReason -> (structure)

The reason why the last state change occurred.

Code -> (string)

The state change reason code.

Message -> (string)

The state change reason message.

CreatedTime -> (timestamp)

The time stamp when the image builder was created.

EnableDefaultInternetAccess -> (boolean)

Enables or disables default internet access for the image builder.

DomainJoinInfo -> (structure)

The name of the directory and organizational unit (OU) to use to join the image builder to a Microsoft Active Directory domain.

DirectoryName -> (string)

The fully qualified name of the directory (for example, corp.example.com).

OrganizationalUnitDistinguishedName -> (string)

The distinguished name of the organizational unit for computer accounts.

NetworkAccessConfiguration -> (structure)

Describes the network details of the fleet or image builder instance.

EniPrivateIpAddress -> (string)

The private IP address of the elastic network interface that is attached to instances in your VPC.

EniId -> (string)

The resource identifier of the elastic network interface that is attached to instances in your VPC. All network interfaces have the eni-xxxxxxxx resource identifier.

ImageBuilderErrors -> (list)

The image builder errors.


Describes a resource error.

ErrorCode -> (string)

The error code.

ErrorMessage -> (string)

The error message.

ErrorTimestamp -> (timestamp)

The time the error occurred.

AppstreamAgentVersion -> (string)

The version of the AppStream 2.0 agent that is currently being used by the image builder.

AccessEndpoints -> (list)

The list of virtual private cloud (VPC) interface endpoint objects. Administrators can connect to the image builder only through the specified endpoints.


Describes an interface VPC endpoint (interface endpoint) that lets you create a private connection between the virtual private cloud (VPC) that you specify and AppStream 2.0. When you specify an interface endpoint for a stack, users of the stack can connect to AppStream 2.0 only through that endpoint. When you specify an interface endpoint for an image builder, administrators can connect to the image builder only through that endpoint.

EndpointType -> (string)

The type of interface endpoint.

VpceId -> (string)

The identifier (ID) of the VPC in which the interface endpoint is used.
