Setting up kitchen.yml for rally


I am having trouble determining the ssh_key_id for my aws account.
I was not aware that I could SSH into the EC2 dashboard itself, I thought only instances.

Maybe i am missing the point?

Also, where would i find or choose an image_id ? ex ami-xxxxx

thanks, Mark


The ssh_key_id is the name of your ssh key when you added it in the AWS console. (unless you haven’t added one)

For AMIs, go to compute, and there is an ami search on the right menu. I would recommend image search though, because the images changes as the images get updated.


For ssh, do i specify the name of the pem file or the full path? Or should it be in the same folder as I am running kitchen from?
