SSM Agent on NixOS AMI

I created an EC2 instance with the latest image from here:

But no SSM Agent installed (it would be nice to have it by default, if possible).

We use it to securely SSH into private subnets etc.

Then again, perhaps I just need to look into using the “deploy NixOS” Terraform module. And make the customisation myself.

Any tips / thoughts would be appreciated!

OK, looks like the deploy NixOS module depends on SSH, which is not accessible without the SSM agent running… Hmm
