CreateCluster request failed

received the following error when creating a cluster:

2 CreateCluster request failed

AccessDeniedException – User: arn:aws:iam::953191494045:user/cloud_user is not authorized to perform: cloudhsm:TagResource with an explicit deny

is there any way permissions can be given for us to participate in the labs?

Same error for me as well.. I am using cloud_user ( as part of the Open Playground) in the N.Virginia region . Also tried with a user with Full Admin access . Same error

I am getting the following error:

AccessDeniedException – User: arn:aws:iam::043525666653:user/cloud_user is not authorized to perform: cloudhsm:CreateCluster with an explicit deny

According to https://help.acloud.guru/hc/en-us/articles/360001389256-AWS-Cloud-Sandbox, CloudHSM is not a supported service in Cloud Playground.  I think this section needs to be updated to call this out.
