I get an "InvalidInstanceType" error for compatibility issues between the current and the new instance type when I am trying to resize the EC2 instance.

Is there an API using which I can find out to which instance types my EC2 instance can be resized to?

There are 2 issues here:

  1. There is no API to list instance types which are eligible
  2. The size of your current is not enough to make the snap

There are not many options, I would suggest you to read this option or just going to your AWS console and trying different types.

You can also read this about Amazon EC2 instance store; helps you understand about the temporary storage required to do those changes.

Also, if you are learner then you would like this AWS tutorial.
