Create AMI By Schedule

Automate Image creation with tag targeting and schedule

  • Select which instances to image

    Identify which instances you want to back up and then create AMIs. You can optionally target which instances to snapshot by tag groups, account and/or region.

  • Create a rule

    Determine how regularly you want to create an image from an instance by setting a schedule. Additionally you can tag the new AMI with tags copied from the volume, tags from the instance or specific new tags.

  • Let the magic happen

    When its time to create your image you’ll receive an alert via Slack, HipChat, E-mail or SMS to remind you that it’s happening. You can combine this with our Scheduled EBS deletion rules to manage the full lifecycle of EBS.
