AWS Prerequisites

Before you begin using Konvoy with AWS, you must:

  1. Follow the steps to create a Minimal Permissions and Role to Create Clusters..

  2. Create Cluster IAM Policies and Roles.

  3. Export the AWS region where you want to deploy the cluster:

    export AWS_REGION=us-west-2
  4. Export the AWS profile with the credentials you want to use to create the Kubernetes cluster:

    export AWS_PROFILE=<profile>

If using AWS ECR as your local private registry, more information can be found on the Local Registry Tools page.

To deploy a cluster with a custom image in a region where CAPI images are not provided, you need to use Konvoy Image Builder to create your own image for the region.
