You cannot modify image components. If an exception occurs on a created image component, you can delete the component and create a new one. You can also delete the image components that are no longer needed. This topic describes how to create an image component in the Elastic Compute Service (ECS) console.

  4. On the Image Builder Management page, click the Image Components tab.
  5. Find the image component that you want to delete. Click Delete in the Actions column.
