Hi Guys,

I am trying to launch an EC2 instance using Ansible-Playbook. But when I try to run my playbook, it is showing me the below error.

fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "msg": "Either region or ec2_url must be specified"}

How to avoid this error?

Hi@akhtar,

You got this error because you did not assign region names in your playbook. By default, Ansible will not pick any region from AWS. So your playbook doesn't know in which region to launch the EC2 instance. To avoid this error you have to tell your region name in your playbook.
