Hi@akhtar,

You can find one keyword --query in your AWS CLI. This keyword allows you to find particular values. You can use the blow given example. It will find all the InstacncId and ImageId.

C:\Users\NADIM AKTHAR>aws ec2 describe-instances  --query Reservations[*].Instances[*].[InstanceId,ImageId]
[
    [
        [
            "i-06e0d316abeb7fca4",
            "ami-0447a12f28fddb066"
        ]
    ],
    [
        [
            "i-0995dbee8a1dd7169",
            "ami-0447a12f28fddb066"
        ]
    ]
]

Hope this will give you some idea.
