Hello @chaithuam,

I believe I had got same error when I was setting up zappa. I think you might have to add permission to your AWS user in IAM. The permission you need is cloudformation:DescribeStackResource.

I hope it helps. If not, somebody else will have to you help you.

Thanks @sammy-SC . I used permissions from #241 and I undeployed and deployed, it worked.

I was doing the Hello world example and undeploy, deploy fix this problem. I was already using the correct permissions, looks like just needed to do clean redeploy. thanks chaithuam.
