How to save/download a new private key in EC2
Hello, everyone! I just started learning AWS today and already created my first EC2 instance. I tried to create a key pair, but unfortunately I don't see a way to save a private key that I could use to connect to my EC2 instance via SSH. I can create key pairs at EC2 > Network and Security > Key Pairs. On that page I only see the "Actions" drop-down list and the "Create key pair" orange button. When I click on "Create key pair" I can only enter key name, type, file format and create a tag. When I click on "Create key pair" it creates a key and doesn't offer me an option to save/download it. On this page they mention I could save the key, but it seems the information on that page may be inaccurate: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/servicecatalog/latest/adminguide/getstarted-keypair.html. Please tell me how to download the private SSH key? Thanks in advance!
The browser will automatically download the private key after you create the keypair
Please check if your browser is blocking auto-download
Thank you! You're right! I must be blind. I was looking for a button and didn't pay attention to what was automatically downloading...
