Amazon EC2: Allows Launching EC2 Instances in a Specific Subnet, Programmatically and in the Console

This example shows how you might create a policy that allows listing information for all EC2 objects and launching EC2 instances in a specific subnet. This policy also grants the necessary permissions to complete this action on the console. To use this policy, replace the red italicized text in the example policy with your own information.
