I am trying to deploy NGFW in eu-west-2, but it's failing on the Cloudformation template. Steps below:
1. Subscribe to NGFW via AWS Marketplace (which is global and not per region).
2. Click on the verification email and set up new password. Then login.
3. Go to Add account, and then launch cloudformation termplate.
At this point, the template opens up in us-east-1 region by default, and changing the region to eu-west-2 in AWS console does not change the cloudformation template parameter values (Trusted Account ID, ExternalID and SNS). Deploying the template with these values fails
One thing I want to try is change the region in NGFW Web UI first (In the Rulestack/NGFW section), and then click Add Account to see if it makes a difference. Again, I could not find anything in the docs about this, but I could be looking in the wrong place.
This would be mean I have to un-subscribe, wait for an hour and re-subscribe. While I wait, any suggestions about what I might be missing please?
Could you please run the cloud formation template in us-east-1 by doing which gets onboarded to us-east-1 and then try changing the region and creating resources in eu-west-2 region

I will post more details here since PM is not working for now.
I have subscribed to NGFW using Marketplace and tried to set the region to eu-west-2 in browser url
After setting my new password, I logged in and set the NGFW region to London in web UI
I then went to Add Account, and clicked Launch Cloudformation template. At this point, it opened a browser tab pointing to us-east-1, and the SNS Topic resource was pointing to us-east-1 as well. If I run the stack like this, it error as per the original post.
I attempted changing the region in AWS console to eu-west-2 at this point, however that did not update CFT parameter values.
Hope this provides a bit more info.
