Cannot create launch configuration from private shared AMI

In the images pane, I seem currently only to be able to create a launch configuration from public images.

"Images from other users that you have permissions to launch" Only shows the icons for :-
View Details
Launch Instance from Image
Create Spot Instance request
Copy AMI to another region

Could you verify whether this is correct, as I'm pretty sure that it should be possible to create launch config from those AMIs

    Looks like we did not add that functionality to the shared images. Adding it to our list.

    Hi there,

    Have there been any updates on this topic? We make heavy use of shared AMIs and are starting to use autoscaling.
