Hi Guys,

I am trying to create an EKS Cluster in AWS. But it is showing me the below error.

Error: checking AWS STS access – cannot get role ARN for current session: InvalidClientTokenId: The security token included in the request is invalid. status code: 403, request id: 51f0e548-f130-4073-b129-27f8c5d49df4

How can I solve this error?

Hi@akhtar,

You got this error because your IAM user don't have permission to create EKS Cluster. To avoid this error, you can create one role or IAM user with EKS Cluster permission. So that your eksctl command can log in to your AWS account.

Have same issue. Can you give any hints how to do that? I was able to create a role EKS Cluster. But don't know what to do next...

Having an error while: 

eksctl get clusters

Error: checking AWS STS access – cannot get role ARN for current session: InvalidClientTokenId: The security token included in the request is invalid.

After you configured your role in AWS, you need to update your credentials in your local system using aws configure command.
