Turbot key pair not available when attempting to initialize new EC2 instance

Turbot creates a keypair within AWS that is used when initializing new EC2 instances, but without the proper policy configuration, the key pair might not be automatically generated. 

The following policies must be set:

AWS > EC2 > Turbot SSH Keys set to Enforce: Create SSH key if EC2 is enabled

AWS > EC2 > Enabled set to Enabled

For Linux instances:

AWS > EC2 > Linus Users Management set to Enforced

Linux > Rights set to Enabled

Once these settings are configured and applied, Turbot will automatically create the AWS key pair. It will populate as an option in the key pair prompt when starting a new instance.
