  • boto

  • boto3

  • botocore

  • python >= 2.6

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aws_access_key
string
AWS access key. If not set then the value of the AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID, AWS_ACCESS_KEY or EC2_ACCESS_KEY environment variable is used.
If profile is set this parameter is ignored.
Passing the aws_access_key and profile options at the same time has been deprecated and the options will be made mutually exclusive after 2022-06-01.

aliases: ec2_access_key, access_key
aws_ca_bundle
path
The location of a CA Bundle to use when validating SSL certificates.
Only used for boto3 based modules.
Note: The CA Bundle is read 'module' side and may need to be explicitly copied from the controller if not run locally.
aws_config
dictionary
A dictionary to modify the botocore configuration.
Only the 'user_agent' key is used for boto modules. See http://boto.cloudhackers.com/en/latest/boto_config_tut.html#boto for more boto configuration.
aws_secret_key
string
AWS secret key. If not set then the value of the AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY, AWS_SECRET_KEY, or EC2_SECRET_KEY environment variable is used.
If profile is set this parameter is ignored.
Passing the aws_secret_key and profile options at the same time has been deprecated and the options will be made mutually exclusive after 2022-06-01.

aliases: ec2_secret_key, secret_key
bucket
string / required
Bucket name.
debug_botocore_endpoint_logs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Use a botocore.endpoint logger to parse the unique (rather than total) "resource:action" API calls made during a task, outputing the set to the resource_actions key in the task results. Use the aws_resource_action callback to output to total list made during a playbook. The ANSIBLE_DEBUG_BOTOCORE_LOGS environment variable may also be used.
dest
path
The destination file path when downloading an object/key with a GET operation.
dualstack
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Enables Amazon S3 Dual-Stack Endpoints, allowing S3 communications using both IPv4 and IPv6.
Requires at least botocore version 1.4.45.
ec2_url
string
Url to use to connect to EC2 or your Eucalyptus cloud (by default the module will use EC2 endpoints). Ignored for modules where region is required. Must be specified for all other modules if region is not used. If not set then the value of the EC2_URL environment variable, if any, is used.

aliases: aws_endpoint_url, endpoint_url
encrypt
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
When set for PUT mode, asks for server-side encryption.
encryption_kms_key_id
string
KMS key id to use when encrypting objects using encrypting=aws:kms. Ignored if encryption is not aws:kms
encryption_mode
string
    Choices:
  • AES256 ←
  • aws:kms
What encryption mode to use if encrypt=true.
expiry
integer
Default:
600
Time limit (in seconds) for the URL generated and returned by S3/Walrus when performing a mode=put or mode=geturl operation.

aliases: expiration
headers
dictionary
Custom headers for PUT operation, as a dictionary of 'key=value' and 'key=value,key=value'.
ignore_nonexistent_bucket
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Overrides initial bucket lookups in case bucket or iam policies are restrictive. Example: a user may have the GetObject permission but no other permissions. In this case using the option mode: get will fail without specifying ignore_nonexistent_bucket=true.
marker
string
Specifies the key to start with when using list mode. Object keys are returned in alphabetical order, starting with key after the marker in order.
max_keys
integer
Default:
1000
Max number of results to return in list mode, set this if you want to retrieve fewer than the default 1000 keys.
metadata
dictionary
Metadata for PUT operation, as a dictionary of 'key=value' and 'key=value,key=value'.
mode
string / required
    Choices:
  • get
  • put
  • delete
  • create
  • geturl
  • getstr
  • delobj
  • list
Switches the module behaviour between put (upload), get (download), geturl (return download url, Ansible 1.3+), getstr (download object as string (1.3+)), list (list keys, Ansible 2.0+), create (bucket), delete (bucket), and delobj (delete object, Ansible 2.0+).
object
string
Keyname of the object inside the bucket. Can be used to create "virtual directories", see examples.
overwrite
string
Default:
"always"
Force overwrite either locally on the filesystem or remotely with the object/key. Used with PUT and GET operations. Boolean or one of [always, never, different], true is equal to 'always' and false is equal to 'never', new in 2.0. When this is set to 'different', the md5 sum of the local file is compared with the 'ETag' of the object/key in S3. The ETag may or may not be an MD5 digest of the object data. See the ETag response header here https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/API/RESTCommonResponseHeaders.html

aliases: force
permission
list / elements=string
Default:
["private"]
This option lets the user set the canned permissions on the object/bucket that are created. The permissions that can be set are private, public-read, public-read-write, authenticated-read for a bucket or private, public-read, public-read-write, aws-exec-read, authenticated-read, bucket-owner-read, bucket-owner-full-control for an object. Multiple permissions can be specified as a list.
prefix
string
Default:
""
Limits the response to keys that begin with the specified prefix for list mode.
profile
string
Uses a boto profile. Only works with boto >= 2.24.0.
Using profile will override aws_access_key, aws_secret_key and security_token and support for passing them at the same time as profile has been deprecated.
aws_access_key, aws_secret_key and security_token will be made mutually exclusive with profile after 2022-06-01.

0
On recoverable failure, how many times to retry before actually failing.

  • no ←
  • yes
Enable Ceph RGW S3 support. This option requires an explicit url via s3_url.
s3_url
string
S3 URL endpoint for usage with Ceph, Eucalyptus and fakes3 etc. Otherwise assumes AWS.

aliases: S3_URL
security_token
string
AWS STS security token. If not set then the value of the AWS_SECURITY_TOKEN or EC2_SECURITY_TOKEN environment variable is used.
If profile is set this parameter is ignored.

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_PROFILE or AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE, 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, AWS_CA_BUNDLE

  • Ansible uses the boto configuration file (typically ~/.boto) if no credentials are provided. See https://boto.readthedocs.io/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
