Amazon EC2 spot fleet role - AWS Batch

Amazon EC2 spot fleet role

If you create a managed compute environment that uses Amazon EC2 Spot Fleet Instances, you must create the AmazonEC2SpotFleetTaggingRole policy. This policy grants Spot Fleet permission to launch, tag, and terminate instances on your behalf. Specify the role in your Spot Fleet request. You must also have the AWSServiceRoleForEC2Spot and AWSServiceRoleForEC2SpotFleet service-linked roles for Amazon EC2 Spot and Spot Fleet. Use the following instruction to create all of these roles. For more information, see Using Service-Linked Roles and Creating a Role to Delegate Permissions to an AWS Service in the IAM User Guide.

Note

In the past, there were two managed policies for the Amazon EC2 Spot Fleet role.

  • AmazonEC2SpotFleetRole: This is the original managed policy for the Spot Fleet role. However, we no longer recommend that you use it with AWS Batch. This policy doesn't support Spot Instance tagging in compute environments, which is required to use the AWSServiceRoleForBatch service-linked role. If you previously created a Spot Fleet role with this policy, apply the new recommended policy to that role. For more information, see Spot Instances not tagged on creation.

  • AmazonEC2SpotFleetTaggingRole: This role provides all of the necessary permissions to tag Amazon EC2 Spot Instances. Use this role to allow Spot Instance tagging on your AWS Batch compute environments.
