Bamboo Custom Image Configuration - Unable to contact AWS to get AMI Details

Atlassian doesn't have a Windows .NET 4.5 image (sigh), so I am creating one on my own via the amazingly detailed blog posts of David Stringer at  

I have created an AMI image and now I am trying to create an elastic image configuration in Bamboo.  However, I get this error: "Unable to contact AWS to get AMI details: com.amazonaws.AmazonServiceException: Status Code: 403, AWS Service: AmazonEC2, AWS Request ID: 95ad13f4-950c-4018-8324-1ca0a2530adc, AWS Error Code: UnauthorizedOperation, AWS Error Message: You are not authorized to perform this operation."

I did have Bamboo working with a default AMI (the .NET 4.0 image from Atlassian), so I'm not sure why I am having problems here.  

Any help would be appreciated.

I had a similar error. Solved it by giving "AmazonEC2FullAccess" to the Elastic Bamboo user in IAM Management Console.

For that go to Security credentials>Users>ElasticBamboo User>Permissions>Attach Policy>AmazonEC2FullAccess

Not sure it would work for you but you can try.

I have same problem please let me know the solution
