I was sitting in my office, staring at my computer screen. I had been working on the same project for hours and I just couldn’t seem to get it right. I needed a break. I got up from my chair and walked over to the window. The sun was setting, and the sky was ablaze with colours. I stood there for a while, just taking it all in.
Suddenly, an idea popped into my head. I could use the image builder components from EC2 to create a custom image for my blog. I quickly got to work, creating a new Amazon Machine Image (AMI) with the image builder components. After a few minutes, I created a new AMI that included all of the necessary components.
I uploaded the AMI to Amazon EC2 and launched an instance using it. After a few minutes, the instance was up and running. I logged in and started working on my blog post. Within minutes, I created a beautiful new post with an amazing header image that perfectly matched my blog’s theme.
Now let’s learn how you can create an EC2 AMI or Docker Image using the Image Builder.
Step 01: Create an Image Pipeline
Enter all the required fields and select the Build Schedule as Manual for this lesson.
Step 02: Choose the Recipe Details as per your requirement.

Step 03: Define infrastructure configuration
Step 04: Go to the next phase and create a Pipeline
Step 05: Run the pipeline
Step 06: Now, again, go back to the ‘Image pipelines’ page, and click your pipeline.
