AWS EC2 Describe Availability Zone Version 1

Returns a single availability zone's Name, State, and Region. An availability zone's messages are not returned in this handler, but they can be found in AWS EC2 Describe Availability Zones returned JSON details object.

Error response will be 'DryRunOperation' if the account has proper permissions and inputs; 'UnauthorizedOperation' if the account does not have proper permissions.
