If a role is copied via Scalr, the snapshot description in ec2 is not populated, which makes it verify difficult to delete old roles that are not in use.

    We're setting description to "Scalr role: XXXXXX" where XXXX is role name. Is it not enough?

    Doesn't appear to be working?

    Ah, seems like this is AWS issue. We're using image copy API call only and snapshot copy happening on AWS side.

    Can you try to copy AMI from one region to another from AWS console and let me know if it will have different behavior.

    Tried copying via the AWS Web interface (where there was a description
    field). The description entered did appear in US West copy.
