"Invalid principal" error for unsupported AWS regions

Problem

When connecting AWS to a New Relic Infrastructure integration, during the Review phase, you receive the AWS error Invalid principal in policy.

Solution

Check the type of integration you want to install. New Relic can obtain monitoring data from services and endpoints that are located in all AWS regions except from China regions.

You will see this error when trying to configure integrations from an account that uses China.
