Setting up AWS EC2 Credentials

To facilitate deployment of projects, when you first open up the Perfect Assistant you will need to configure Amazon AWS EC2 Credentials.

Configuring EC2 credentialsBegin by clicking the "Configure EC2 Credentials..." button. You will be presented with a new dialog that will show any pre-existing EC2 Credentials stored.

Configure EC2 CredentialsTo create a new set of credentials, click "Create" and enter the information as requested. The "Credentials Name" field is purely for your reference, and the "Default Region" selection will provide some convenience as you create new AWS Instances.

The "Access Key ID" and "Secret Access Key" can be generated in your Amazon AWS account. If you do not already have this information, refer to Amazon's help documenttion here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/IAM/latest/UserGuide/id_credentials_access-keys.html#Using_CreateAccessKey
