Known issue: Docker Cloud cannot add aws credentials for an account with no default vpc

(Jef Statham) #1

I’ve added all the iam permission but when I try to add the credentials they will not save. I believe it’s because this aws account has all the default VPC’s deleted in all regions.

Following the guide this is my error

➜ ~ aws ec2 run-instances --dry-run --image-id ami-4d883350 --instance-type m3.medium
A client error (VPCIdNotSpecified) occurred when calling the RunInstances operation: No default VPC for this user
