This scraper enables you to retrieve Ubuntu image ID(s) available on various public clouds. Ubuntu is a complete Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support.

To run the code examples, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the code with your API token. For a more detailed explanation, please read about running Actors via the API in Apify Docs.

import { ApifyClient } from 'apify-client';

// Initialize the ApifyClient with API token
const client = new ApifyClient({

// Prepare Actor input
const input = {
    "zone": "us-east-1",
    "name": "focal",
    "version": "20.04",
    "arch": "amd64",
    "instanceType": "hvm-ssd",
    "release": "Any",
    "id": "Any",
    "numberOfResults": 1

    const run = await client.actor("lukas.novotny/ubuntu-images-scraper").call(input);

    console.log('Results from dataset');
    const { items } = await client.dataset(run.defaultDatasetId).listItems();
    items.forEach((item) => {
