Amazon AppStream 2.0 now provides Image Assistant CLI operations, which lets you create images without any manual intervention. With these CLI operations, you can programmatically interact with the AppStream 2.0 Image Assistant to specify which applications your users can launch, manage the dynamic application framework, specify tags, and create an AppStream 2.0 image.

These CLI operations, which you can access by using the command-line shell from within the image builder, let you create images with your existing application deployment automation systems, or integrate with your continuous integration/continuous software deployment processes. For an example of how to use the Image Assistant CLI operations to programmatically create your image, see Creating an image programmatically with AppStream 2.0 Image Assistant CLI Operations on the Desktop and Application Streaming blog. To learn more about the Image Assistant CLI operations, see Create Your AppStream 2.0 Image Programmatically by Using the Image Assistant CLI Operations in the AppStream 2.0 developer guide.

The Image Assistant APIs feature is available today 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.
