For instructions on how to link your AWS account to Docker Cloud, see the AWS instructions that enable swarm mode.

Note: The procedure for linking these accounts is the same, regardless of whether you are using Docker Cloud in Swarm Mode or not. If you are using standard mode, come back to these topics after you have linked your AWS account.
