Create an AWS EC2 instance using Launch Template
Welcome to CloudAffaire and this is Debjeet
In the last blog post, we have discussed how to create an AWS EC2 Launch Template.
In this blog post, we are going to discuss how to create an AWS EC2 instance using Launch Template
Create an AWS EC2 instance using Launch Template:
Step 1: Login to AWS console and navigate to EC2 service and click on ‘Launch Templates’ under INSTANCES.
Step 2: Click Actions and select ‘Launch instance from template’.
Step 3: Select Source launch template and Source template version.
Step 4: Once we have selected the Source launch template and Source template version, launch parameters will be displayed for that Source template.
Note: We can change an existing launch parameter but we cannot change it to null.
We are not going to change any launch parameter in this blog.
Step 5: Click Launch instance from the template. We will get a success message, click ‘Close’.
If everything is OK, we will get a new EC2 instance. We can check the instance details in the instance section under INSTANCE.
Hope you have enjoyed this blog post. In the next blog post, we are going to create a new Launch Template Version from our existing Launch Template
