Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • requestId (string) –

      The request ID that uniquely identifies this request.

    • imagePipeline (dict) –

      The image pipeline object.

      • arn (string) –

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the image pipeline.

      • name (string) –

        The name of the image pipeline.

      • description (string) –

        The description of the image pipeline.

      • platform (string) –

        The platform of the image pipeline.

      • enhancedImageMetadataEnabled (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.

      • imageRecipeArn (string) –

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the image recipe associated with this image pipeline.

      • containerRecipeArn (string) –

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the container recipe that is used for this pipeline.

      • infrastructureConfigurationArn (string) –

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the infrastructure configuration associated with this image pipeline.

      • distributionConfigurationArn (string) –

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the distribution configuration associated with this image pipeline.

      • imageTestsConfiguration (dict) –

        The image tests 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.


          The timeoutMinutes attribute is not currently active. This value is ignored.

      • schedule (dict) –

        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.

      • status (string) –

        The status of the image pipeline.

      • dateCreated (string) –

        The date on which this image pipeline was created.

      • dateUpdated (string) –

        The date on which this image pipeline was last updated.

      • dateLastRun (string) –

        This is no longer supported, and does not return a value.

      • dateNextRun (string) –

        This is no longer supported, and does not return a value.

      • tags (dict) –

        The tags of this image pipeline.

        • (string) –

          • (string) –

      • imageScanningConfiguration (dict) –

        Contains settings for vulnerability scans.

        • imageScanningEnabled (boolean) –

          A setting that indicates whether Image Builder keeps a snapshot of the vulnerability scans that Amazon Inspector runs against the build instance when you create a new image.

        • ecrConfiguration (dict) –

          Contains Amazon ECR settings for vulnerability scans.

          • repositoryName (string) –

            The name of the container repository that Amazon Inspector scans to identify findings for your container images. The name includes the path for the repository location. If you don’t provide this information, Image Builder creates a repository in your account named image-builder-image-scanning-repository for vulnerability scans of your output container images.

          • containerTags (list) –

            Tags for Image Builder to apply to the output container image that &INS; scans. Tags can help you identify and manage your scanned images.
