If you are using your own AWS account, you will need permissions to create EKS clusters plus admin rights within your EKS cluster to configure configuration rules and install agents. Ensure you have authority within your organization to do this in your tenant.

Add the EKS security group to your Cloud9 Instance

Go to your EC2 Instances and select the instance with a name starting with aws-cloud9, Click on Actions, Security and select Change Security Groups.
