Hello Everyone

Welcome to CloudAffaire and this is Debjeet.

Today we will discuss how to create an infrastructure configuration in AWS Image Builder service using AWS CLI.

What is the infrastructure configuration in AWS Image Builder?

Infrastructure configurations allow you to specify the infrastructure within which to build and test your EC2 Image Builder image.

Infrastructure settings include:

  1. Instance types for your build and test infrastructure. We recommend specifying more than one instance type because this allows Image Builder to launch an instance from a pool with sufficient capacity. This can reduce your transient build failures.
  2. An instance profile that provides your build and test instances with the permissions that are required to perform customization activities. For example, if you have a component that retrieves resources from Amazon S3, the instance profile requires permissions to access those files. The instance profile also requires a minimal set of permissions for EC2 Image Builder to successfully communicate with the instance. For more information, see Prerequisites.
  3. The VPC, subnet, and security groups for your pipeline’s build and test instances.
  4. The Amazon S3 location where Image Builder stores application logs from your build and testing. If you configure logging, the instance profile specified in your infrastructure configuration must have s3:PutObject permissions for the target bucket (arn:aws:s3:::BucketName/*).
  5. An Amazon EC2 key pair that allows you to log on to your instance to troubleshoot if your build fails and you set terminateInstanceOnFailure to false.
  6. An SNS topic to which Image Builder sends event notifications.
