Retrieving Amazon EKS optimized Bottlerocket AMI IDs

You can retrieve the Amazon Machine Image (AMI) ID for Amazon EKS optimized AMIs by querying the Amazon Systems Manager Parameter Store API. Using this parameter, you don't need to manually look up Amazon EKS optimized AMI IDs. For more information about the Systems Manager Parameter Store API, see GetParameter. The IAM principal that you use must have the ssm:GetParameter IAM permission to retrieve the Amazon EKS optimized AMI metadata.

You can retrieve the image ID of the latest recommended Amazon EKS optimized Bottlerocket AMI with the following Amazon CLI command by using the sub-parameter image_id. Replace 1.29 with a supported version and region-code with an Amazon EKS supported Region for which you want the AMI ID.

aws ssm get-parameter --name /aws/service/bottlerocket/aws-k8s-1.29/x86_64/latest/image_id --region region-code --query "Parameter.Value" --output text

An example output is as follows.
