Error creating Key Pair: You are not authorized to perform this operation

0 votes

I am trying to create an EC2 instance and on the last step of launching I try to create a key pair ( which will generate a .pem file for login) and I get the below error. Error Error creating Key Pair: You are not authorized to perform this operation.

Can anyone tell me what authentication should I give to my IAM right now I have Admin access.

Not very sure what is causing the Issue.

Try adding AmazonEC2FullAccess policy.

If you are not sure how to do it:

Log in to IAM, then choose necessary user and on Permissions tab click Add permission button. On next page click on Attach existing policies directly button and look for AmazonEC2FullAccesspolicy. Attach it. This worked for me.
