I have installed AWS module to provision vpc instance in AWS, it shows that there is no options available to specify subnet group. does it mean not supported ?

$pe_master_hostname = ''
ec2_instance { 'AWSPeTEST':
  ensure            => present,
  region            => 'us-east-1',
  image_id          => 'ami-e08efbd0',
  instance_type     => 't1.micro',
  key_name          => 'Dev1-VA',
  subnet            => 'subnet-aeec2e85'
  security_groups   => ['sgVPCDev1-VA-1-PA'],
  user_data         => template('module/'),
  tags              => {
    tag_name => 'value',

Error: Invalid parameter subnet on Ec2_instance[AWSPeTEST]

It does not appear there is a subnet parameter. You can see the examples at , which do not show the subnet parameter, but it is best to check the source code as well, in case the documentation is out of date. Visit and look at the newproperty and newparam calls. None are labelled subnet, so it is not available. Perhaps one of the other parameters would provide that information indirectly.
