Amazon EC2 announces pagination for the EC2 DescribeImages API. It allows you to describe your images over a number of API requests, instead a single one. You can specify a page size when calling the API, which will be used as the upper bound for resources to return in a single request. A pagination token is returned on the response, which you can then include in your next API request to fetch the next page of images.

Pagination solves problems due to time-outs or response size when you have a large number of images in your account or shared with you. It allows you to fetch all your images across a single paginated workflow, providing consistent and reliable response times.

The feature is available now in all Amazon Web Services Regions, including the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
