By adding an AWS key pair name to the cloud template, you can remotely access a machine that vRealize Automation Cloud Assembly deploys to AWS.

Be aware that AWS key pairs are region specific. If you provision workloads into us-east-1, the key pair must exist in us-east-1.

Use the following code as a guideline. This option works for AWS cloud zones only.

type: Cloud.Machine
  image: Ubuntu
  flavor: small
    authentication: keyPairName
    keyPair: cas-test
  - tag: 'cloud:aws'
