Delete snapshots when deleting images

Elliott Spira | Tue Mar 24 2020

Just like the crumbs left behind when eating cookies, it is an unfortunate reality of life (with AWS at least) that many of your snapshots (so beautifully titled “Created by CreateImage...”) are in fact leftovers from an AMI that has since been deleted.

This could always be addressed after running Delete Images by then running our Delete Snapshots Action.

However, we’ve now added an option to the Delete Images action to remove the deleted AMI’s snapshots so that no orphans are created in the first place.
