Manage Amazon instances, Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), Key Pairs, and Tags from your ServiceNow instance. Request apps on the Store. Visit the ServiceNow Store website to view all the available apps and for information about submitting requests to the store.

So alternatively try those: ssh -i my-pem-file.pem ubuntu@my-ec2-instance-address for Ubuntu. or. ssh -i my-pem-file.pem root@my-ec2-instance-address for RHEL5. Hope it helps!
