Amazon RDS Custom SQL-Server: Agent not running



I am an absolute beginner to Amazon RDS. I've created an RDS Custom Instance for SQL Server Standard. After connecting; I've tried to activate SQL Jobs:

 sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1; 
 sp_configure 'Agent XPs', 1; 

Now I 'm able to create jobs, but they are not runnable. Error message is: Enter image description here

I've found no advanced setting in RDS admin or Management Studio where I am able to activate the agent. According to the documentation, this feature should work:

Can anybody point me into the right direction please how to get it running? Thanks in advance.
