ElasticBamboo custom AMI Image User


I'm trying to create a custom AMI Image for Bamboo to connect to, however I don't understand how I should be doing it.

What I did

  1. Create a Debian-based instance (AMI ami-a345c3d4, region eu-west)
  2. Install the tools I'll need to run my builds (python, nodejs, ...)
  3. Create an image from EC2 console
  4. Configure create an bamboo user + IAM policy
  5. Configure that image in Bamboo
  6. Start the instance
However, it seems that Bamboo doesn't manage to connect to the instance: when installing the agent, it keeps on saying "pending".
After investigating a bit, it seems that it tries to connect using the "ec2-user" user, whereas the user on Debian images is "admin".
What is the correct way to work this around? I can't find where you should define which user you should connect as.

You need to follow this guide: .

I would suggest using our Ubuntu images copied to EU west, it should be easier. We will soon release these images for all regions.
