This handler uses the AWS REST API Launch the specified number of instances using an AMI for which you have permissions. For more information see the AWS Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide online.

The Dry Run parameter validates user permissions and inputs. If it is set to true, an error will always be thrown by the handler before completing the handler action. Error response will be 'DryRunOperation' if the account has proper permissions and inputs; 'UnauthorizedOperation' if the account does not have proper permissions.
