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 Ubuntu available here.
This post specifically lists the Public SSM Parameters for Ubuntu Linux or for the
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/canonical/', Recursive=True ) ssm_param_name_list =  for page in page_iterator: for parameter in page['Parameters']: ssm_param_name_list.append(parameter['Name']) ssm_param_name_list.sort() for ssm_param_name in ssm_param_name_list: print(ssm_param_name)
Below is the list of Public SSM Parameters for the Ubuntu (canonical) EC2 AMIs when I ran the code above.
I hope this helps.
