Unable to remove instance type from launch template


I created a launch template with a particular instance type defined. Later, I realized that I shouldn't have included the instance type in the template as it is better to specify template type with ASG or during individual launch. However, I am now unable to modify the launch template and remove the instance type. The steps I am following are:

  • create a new version of launch template
  • Go to Instance Type -> Select "Don't include in launch template"

However, the previously selected instance type remains selected and it never goes back to "Don't include in launch template" selection. I think this is a bug.

After updating the lunch template, when you re-open it, the default version will be previous one. So you probably need to select latest version under "Detail" tab -> "Launch template version details" After doing so, just ensure to ensure your load balancer has set this latest version as well.

  • Problem isn't that.. I have problem "editing" the launch template. Please see my steps again. I am creating a new version based off the last version. I can make all other changes. But I am unable to change the instance type back to "Don't include in launch template".
