– summarizes all “resource:actions” completed


This plugin is part of the collection (version 2.1.0).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install

To use it in a playbook, specify:


  • Ansible callback plugin for collecting the AWS actions completed by all boto3 modules using AnsibleAWSModule in a playbook. Botocore endpoint logs need to be enabled for those modules, which can be done easily by setting debug_botocore_endpoint_logs to True for group/aws using module_defaults.


The below requirements are needed on the local controller node that executes this callback.

  • whitelisting in configuration - see examples section below for details.


example: >
  To enable, add this to your ansible.cfg file in the defaults block
    callback_whitelist = aws_resource_actions
sample output: >
# AWS ACTIONS: ['s3:PutBucketAcl', 's3:HeadObject', 's3:DeleteObject', 's3:PutObjectAcl', 's3:CreateMultipartUpload',
#               's3:DeleteBucket', 's3:GetObject', 's3:DeleteObjects', 's3:CreateBucket', 's3:CompleteMultipartUpload',
#               's3:ListObjectsV2', 's3:HeadBucket', 's3:UploadPart', 's3:PutObject']
sample output: >
# AWS ACTIONS: ['ec2:DescribeVpcAttribute', 'ec2:DescribeVpcClassicLink', 'ec2:ModifyVpcAttribute', 'ec2:CreateTags',
#               'sts:GetCallerIdentity', 'ec2:DescribeSecurityGroups', 'ec2:DescribeTags', 'ec2:DescribeVpcs', 'ec2:CreateVpc']
