aws lightsail export-snapshot

Exports an Amazon Lightsail instance or block storage disk snapshot to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). This operation results in an export snapshot record that can be used with the create cloud formation stack operation to create new Amazon EC2 instances. Exported instance snapshots appear in Amazon EC2 as Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), and the instance system disk appears as an Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume. Exported disk snapshots appear in Amazon EC2 as Amazon EBS volumes. Snapshots are exported to the same Amazon Web Services Region in Amazon EC2 as the source Lightsail snapshot. The export snapshot operation supports tag-based access control via resource tags applied to the resource identified by source snapshot name. For more information, see the Lightsail Dev Guide. Use the get instance snapshots or get disk snapshots operations to get a list of snapshots that you can export to Amazon EC2


--source-snapshot-name <string>The name of the instance or disk snapshot to be exported to Amazon EC2
--cli-input-json <string>Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by ``--generate-cli-skeleton``. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally
--generate-cli-skeleton <string>Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value ``input``, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for ``--cli-input-json``. If provided with the value ``output``, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command
