  • containerType (string) –


    The type of container to create.

  • name (string) –


    The name of the container recipe.

  • description (string) – The description of the container recipe.

  • semanticVersion (string) –


    The semantic version of the container recipe. This version follows the semantic version syntax.


    The semantic version has four nodes: <major>.<minor>.<patch>/<build>. You can assign values for the first three, and can filter on all of them.

    Assignment: For the first three nodes you can assign any positive integer value, including zero, with an upper limit of 2^30-1, or 1073741823 for each node. Image Builder automatically assigns the build number to the fourth node.

    Patterns: You can use any numeric pattern that adheres to the assignment requirements for the nodes that you can assign. For example, you might choose a software version pattern, such as 1.0.0, or a date, such as 2021.01.01.

  • components (list) –


    Components for build and test that are included in the container recipe. Recipes require a minimum of one build component, and can have a maximum of 20 build and test components in any combination.

    • (dict) –

      Configuration details of the component.

      • componentArn (string) – [REQUIRED]

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the component.

      • parameters (list) –

        A group of parameter settings that Image Builder uses to configure the component for a specific recipe.

        • (dict) –

          Contains a key/value pair that sets the named component parameter.

          • name (string) – [REQUIRED]

            The name of the component parameter to set.

          • value (list) – [REQUIRED]

            Sets the value for the named component parameter.

            • (string) –

  • instanceConfiguration (dict) –

    A group of options that can be used to configure an instance for building and testing container images.

    • image (string) –

      The AMI ID to use as the base image for a container build and test instance. If not specified, Image Builder will use the appropriate ECS-optimized AMI as a base image.

    • blockDeviceMappings (list) –

      Defines the block devices to attach for building an instance from this Image Builder AMI.

      • (dict) –

        Defines block device mappings for the instance used to configure your image.

        • deviceName (string) –

          The device to which these mappings apply.

        • ebs (dict) –

          Use to manage Amazon EBS-specific configuration for this mapping.

          • encrypted (boolean) –

            Use to configure device encryption.

          • deleteOnTermination (boolean) –

            Use to configure delete on termination of the associated device.

          • iops (integer) –

            Use to configure device IOPS.

          • kmsKeyId (string) –

            Use to configure the KMS key to use when encrypting the device.

          • snapshotId (string) –

            The snapshot that defines the device contents.

          • volumeSize (integer) –

            Use to override the device’s volume size.

          • volumeType (string) –

            Use to override the device’s volume type.

          • throughput (integer) –

            For GP3 volumes only – The throughput in MiB/s that the volume supports.

        • virtualName (string) –

          Use to manage instance ephemeral devices.

        • noDevice (string) –

          Use to remove a mapping from the base image.

  • dockerfileTemplateData (string) – The Dockerfile template used to build your image as an inline data blob.

    • service (string) – [REQUIRED]

      Specifies the service in which this image was registered.

    • repositoryName (string) – [REQUIRED]

      The name of the container repository where the output container image is stored. This name is prefixed by the repository location.

  • kmsKeyId (string) – Identifies which KMS key is used to encrypt the container image.

  • clientToken (string) –


    Unique, case-sensitive identifier you provide to ensure idempotency of the request. For more information, see Ensuring idempotency in the Amazon EC2 API Reference.

    This field is autopopulated if not provided.
