AWS AMI, EBS Snapshot and Volume support

The Cado platform supports acquiring AMIs, EBS Snapshots or volumes of machines, either by using a cross account role, or directly sharing the image/snapshot with the Cado AWS account. If sharing an AMI, you will need to select the option to share the underlying Snapshots ("Edit AMI Permissions" > Tick "Add 'Create volume' permission"). For more information, see Share an Amazon EBS snapshot.

Select the region, and specify the identifer of the AMI, snapshot or volume. Click 'Continue', confirm the details and click 'Start Import'. AWS AMI
