  • It will show the corresponding packages and after agree the license will install it. Just a simple procedure.

Step 2
  • Windows –> Preferences –> select AWS Toolkit and Fill the fields according to your amazon ec2 account
  • Give your name to Account Name (Not Necessary), but give exact value to Access Key ID and Secret Access Key according to your amazon acc.
  • In the optional configuration (Expand it) give account id (exact value) to that field.

Step 3
  • Windows –> Show view –> Other –> Select AWS toolkit view (Select all views) –> OK
  • Now you can see the perspective view of aws.
