Return Values

Common return values are documented here Return Values, the following are the fields unique to this module:

name description returned type sample
ramdisk_id ID of the RAM disk associated with the AMI always string None
block_device_mapping Block device mapping for the instances of launch configuration always list [{ 'device_name': '/dev/xvda':, 'ebs': { 'delete_on_termination': true, 'volume_size': 8, 'volume_type': 'gp2' }]
kernel_id ID of the kernel associated with the AMI always string None
key_name Name of the key pair always string user_app
launch_configuration_name Name of the launch configuration always string lc-app
ebs_optimized EBS I/O optimized (true ) or not (false ) always bool true,
user_data User data available always string None
image_id ID of the Amazon Machine Image (AMI) always string ami-12345678
instance_type Instance type always string t2.micro
created_time The creation date and time for the launch configuration always string 2016-05-27T13:47:44.216000+00:00
instance_monitoring Launched with detailed monitoring or not always dict { 'enabled': true }
launch_configuration_arn Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the launch configuration always string arn:aws:autoscaling:us-east-1:666612345678:launchConfiguration:ba785e3a-dd42-6f02-4585-ea1a2b458b3d:launchConfigurationName/lc-app
security_groups Security groups to associated always list [ 'web' ]
classic_link_vpc_security_groups IDs of one or more security groups for the VPC specified in classic_link_vpc_id always string None


Notes

Note

  • If parameters are not set within the module, the following environment variables can be used in decreasing order of precedence AWS_URL or EC2_URL, AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID or AWS_ACCESS_KEY or EC2_ACCESS_KEY, AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY or AWS_SECRET_KEY or EC2_SECRET_KEY, AWS_SECURITY_TOKEN or EC2_SECURITY_TOKEN, AWS_REGION or EC2_REGION
  • Ansible uses the boto configuration file (typically ~/.boto) if no credentials are provided. See http://boto.readthedocs.org/en/latest/boto_config_tut.html
  • AWS_REGION or EC2_REGION can be typically be used to specify the AWS region, when required, but this can also be configured in the boto config file
