I’ve change the instance name several time. It will show the new instance name with the same error message. https://GitHub.com/ccarrylab/aws-tf-amazon-connect

You don’t happen to already have a connect instance with that instance alias, do you?
like one already created in your aws account called “default”

I already have a connect instance name “connect”. Even when I change the name it show it already exist. When I go to the Kms page or the connect page. The new name isn’t there.
I’m new to Amazon Connect.

yeah but the error isn’t talking about the name, it’s referring to the alias https://github.com/ccarrylab/aws-tf-amazon-connect/blob/main/main.tf#L333 in your variables file, that value defaults to “default” does the instance you already have also have an istance_alias of “default”?
I’ve never used Amazon connect before myself, but judging from the error, that attribute has to be unique

I will add a name to line 333 with something like: instance_alias = “connect1”

That should work, but I would advise keeping it as a variable and change the value of the variable instead. We don’t like hardcoded values where we can avoid them 🙂
