You can now share your AppStream 2.0 application images with other AWS accounts in the same AWS Region. This lets you maintain one version of your application image and securely provide other AWS accounts access to it. For example, software vendors can now create an image with their applications installed, and share it with their customers as part of a SaaS or trial offering while maintaining control of the source image. Or, enterprises can configure images in their test account and then share them with their production account. You control whether the recipient can use your image with their fleets, to create new images, or both, and you can revoke access at any time.

To get started select Images, Image Registry from the AppStream 2.0 console. Select the image you wish to share and select Actions, Share. Choose Add account, and enter the AWS account ID you wish to share your image with. To stop sharing an image, select the Permissions tab, then choose Edit for the AWS account ID you wish to remove permissions from. To learn more about image sharing, see Administer Your Amazon AppStream 2.0 Images.  

You can share images for your users at no additional charge in all AWS Regions where AppStream 2.0 is offered. AppStream 2.0 offers pay-as-you-go pricing. Please see Amazon AppStream 2.0 Pricing for more information, and try our sample applications.
