List of Public SSM Parameters for Amazon Linux AMIs (ami-amazon-linux-latest)

Last Updated on February 1, 2022

I have been frequently using Public SSM Parameters for EC2 Images recently in CloudFormation templates, so I decided to put the complete list of the Public SSM Parameters for Amazon Linux available here.

This post specifically lists the Public SSM Parameters for Amazon Linux or for the /aws/service/ami-amazon-linux-latest/ path.

Here is the Python3 code that I used that uses boto3 to retrieve the Public SSM Parameter names.

import boto3

if __name__ == "__main__":

  ssm_client = boto3.client('ssm')

  paginator = ssm_client.get_paginator('get_parameters_by_path')
  page_iterator = paginator.paginate(Path="/aws/service/ami-amazon-linux-latest/")

  ssm_param_name_list = []

  for page in page_iterator:
    for parameter in page['Parameters']:

  for ssm_param_name in ssm_param_name_list:

Below is the complete list of Public SSM Parameters for the Amazon Linux EC2 Images.

I hope this helps.
