Add Your Custom Branding to Amazon AppStream 2.0

  • Amazon AppStream 2.0 allows you to customize the appearance of the streaming application catalog page with your own branding images, text, and website links. The customization options include an organization logo, website links, color theme, page title, favicon, redirect URL, and feedback URL. The branding elements can be configured in the AppStream 2.0 console. The custom branding is not available for the user pool sign-in portal or for the email notifications sent to user pool users. The maximum size and dimensions for images and text are specified in the branding options. The color theme palettes include red, light blue, blue, and pink. You can preview your branding changes by applying them to a test stack before deploying to a production stack.

How to script AWS CLI to describe instances on Amazon WorkSpaces

Here’s an example of a bash script that uses the AWS CLI to describe Amazon WorkSpaces instances:

# Define the AWS region to use
# Use the AWS CLI to describe the Amazon Workspaces instances
INSTANCES=$(aws workspaces describe-workspaces --region $REGION)
# Print the information for each instance
echo "Information for all Amazon Workspaces instances:"
echo $INSTANCES | jq -r '.Workspaces[] | "\(.DirectoryId) \(.UserName) \(.WorkspaceId) \(.State)"'

In this example, the script uses the aws workspaces describe-workspaces command to get information about all Amazon WorkSpaces instances in the specified region (us-west-2 in this case). The output of the command is stored in the INSTANCES variable. The script then uses the jq command to parse the JSON output and print the DirectoryId, UserName, WorkspaceId, and State of each instance.

You’ll need to have the AWS CLI and jq installed on your system to run this script.
