Amazon WorkSpaces now offers an API to create a new WorkSpace Image from a WorkSpace instance. Previously, this functionality was available only through the Amazon WorkSpaces console. After this launch, you can apply all the applications and operating system updates on a WorkSpace and use this API to create a new Image. Once the new image is created, you can test it before updating your production bundles or sharing the image with other Amazon Web Services accounts. With this launch you can fully automate your WorkSpaces CI/CD pipelines and keep your WorkSpaces images up-to-date as per your regulatory standards.

This API is now available in all Amazon Web Services Regions where Amazon WorkSpaces is available.

There is no additional cost to use this API and it is automatically enabled for you. For more information, see CreateWorkspaceImage at Amazon WorkSpaces API Reference.
