  2. Choose Create bot.

  3. In the Creation method section, choose Create.

  4. In the Bot configuration section, give the bot a name and an optional description.

  5. In the IAM permissions section, choose an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that provides Amazon Lex V2 permission to access other AWS services, such as Amazon CloudWatch. You can have Amazon Lex V2 create the role, or you can choose an existing role with CloudWatch permissions.
