How to run a Fargate task? My cluster seems to be invisible

lb flag

I don't know what details to provide here, so bear with me. I want to use AWS Fargate. I successfully uploaded my docker image, created a Task Definition, and created an EKS cluster, but when I attempt to "Run Task," I am unable to because the "cluster" dropdown is greyed out and reads "None Available," and when I click Run Task, it says I need to choose a cluster.

The cluster exists and claims to be Active. It is located in a custom VPC, and the task uses the awsvpc networking type (I would prefer Bridge, but that option was also mysteriously greyed out).

How do I find out what is wrong here?

Turns out, EKS and ECS clusters are different things. In the "new" interface, a link to create the correct kind of cluster is provided, and when I did that, it worked. Though I'm a long way from actually connecting to a Fargate service...

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
