EC2 Instance Profiles

Length: 00:12:04

Lesson Summary:

This lesson details Instance Profiles and creating them from the command line. It is important to understand when attaching a role to an EC2 Instance from the IAM Management Console, that the item in the drop-down is an Instance Profile and not a Role. When a Role is created in the Management Console, the Instance Profile is given the same name. By creating Instance Profiles from the CLI, there is more flexibility in naming the Instance Profile (it can be named differently than the Role), and also in attaching a different role to the Instance Profile.
