List of Public SSM Parameters for Debian AMI (debian)

Last Updated on February 1, 2022

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

This post specifically lists the Public SSM Parameters for Debian or for the /aws/service/debian/ 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(

  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 list of Public SSM Parameters for the Debian EC2 AMIs when I ran the code above.

I hope this helps.
