In this self-paced exercise, you will learn how to standardize the configuration, deployment, and lifecycle management of CloudWatch Container Insights across a fleet of clusters using add-ons and blueprints.

What Will You Do by Part

Part What will you do?
1 Setup and Configuration
2 Provision an Amazon EKS Cluster
3 Cluster Blueprint with Amazon CloudWatch Agent
4 Deprovision the EKS cluster


The steps in this guide assume that you will also be provisioning an EKS cluster. This requires the user to have access to an Amazon AWS account with privileges to create an IAM Role with the default Full IAM Policy to allow provisioning of resources on your behalf as part of the EKS cluster lifecycle.

Users that "already" have an EKS cluster in a project can skip some of the initial steps. These steps will be specifically identified in the guide.
