Getting your Amazon EC2 credentials is a pretty easy process:
  1. Add a new IAM User: https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/home#/users$new?step=details‚Äč
  2. Name the user Hatchbox
  3. Set Access type to Programmatic access
  4. Add the AmazonEC2FullAccess permission to the IAM user
  5. You can then add your Access Key ID and Secret Access Key to a new AWS Cluster in Hatchbox.

Hatchbox will ask which VPC you would like to use. We recommend letting Hatchbox create and configure a VPC for you. If you choose an existing VPC, you'll need to make sure you have an internet gateway, routing table, and security groups setup so that ports 22, 80, and 443 are accessible.
