community.aws.aws_acm module – Upload and delete certificates in the AWS Certificate Manager service


Note

This module is part of the community.aws collection (version 3.2.1).

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 community.aws.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.aws.aws_acm.

New in version 1.0.0: of community.aws

Synopsis

  • Import and delete certificates in Amazon Web Service’s Certificate Manager (AWS ACM).

  • This module does not currently interact with AWS-provided certificates. It currently only manages certificates provided to AWS by the user.

  • The ACM API allows users to upload multiple certificates for the same domain name, and even multiple identical certificates. This module attempts to restrict such freedoms, to be idempotent, as per the Ansible philosophy. It does this through applying AWS resource “Name” tags to ACM certificates.

  • When state=present, if there is one certificate in ACM with a Name tag equal to the name_tag parameter, and an identical body and chain, this task will succeed without effect.

  • When state=present, if there is one certificate in ACM a Name tag equal to the name_tag parameter, and a different body, this task will overwrite that certificate.

  • When state=present, if there are multiple certificates in ACM with a Name tag equal to the name_tag parameter, this task will fail.

  • When state=absent and certificate_arn is defined, this module will delete the ACM resource with that ARN if it exists in this region, and succeed without effect if it doesn’t exist.

  • When state=absent and domain_name is defined, this module will delete all ACM resources in this AWS region with a corresponding domain name. If there are none, it will succeed without effect.

  • When state=absent and certificate_arn is not defined, and domain_name is not defined, this module will delete all ACM resources in this AWS region with a corresponding Name tag. If there are none, it will succeed without effect.

  • Note that this may not work properly with keys of size 4096 bits, due to a limitation of the ACM API.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • python >= 3.6

  • boto3 >= 1.16.0

  • botocore >= 1.19.0

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

aws_access_key

aliases: ec2_access_key, 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.

aws_ca_bundle

path

The location of a CA Bundle to use when validating SSL certificates.

Not used by boto 2 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.

Parameters can be found at https://botocore.amazonaws.com/v1/documentation/api/latest/reference/config.html#botocore.config.Config.

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

aliases: ec2_secret_key, 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.

certificate

string

The body of the PEM encoded public certificate.

Required when state is not absent and the certificate does not exist.

If your certificate is in a file, use lookup('file', 'path/to/cert.pem').

certificate_arn

aliases: arn

string

The ARN of a certificate in ACM to modify or delete.

If state=present, the certificate with the specified ARN can be updated. For example, this can be used to add/remove tags to an existing certificate.

If state=absent, you must provide one of certificate_arn, domain_name or name_tag.

If state=absent and no resource exists with this ARN in this region, the task will succeed with no effect.

If state=absent and the corresponding resource exists in a different region, this task may report success without deleting that resource.

certificate_chain

string

The body of the PEM encoded chain for your certificate.

If your certificate chain is in a file, use lookup('file', 'path/to/chain.pem').

Ignored when state=absent

debug_botocore_endpoint_logs

boolean

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.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

domain_name

aliases: domain

string

The domain name of the certificate.

If state=absent and domain_name is specified, this task will delete all ACM certificates with this domain.

Exactly one of domain_name, name_tag and certificate_arn must be provided.

If state=present this must not be specified. (Since the domain name is encoded within the public certificate’s body.)

ec2_url

aliases: aws_endpoint_url, endpoint_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.

name_tag

aliases: name

string

The unique identifier for tagging resources using AWS tags, with key Name.

This can be any set of characters accepted by AWS for tag values.

This is to ensure Ansible can treat certificates idempotently, even though the ACM API allows duplicate certificates.

If state=preset, this must be specified.

If state=absent and name_tag is specified, this task will delete all ACM certificates with this Name tag.

If state=absent, you must provide exactly one of certificate_arn, domain_name or name_tag.

private_key

string

The body of the PEM encoded private key.

Required when state=present and the certificate does not exist.

Ignored when state=absent.

If your private key is in a file, use lookup('file', 'path/to/key.pem').

profile

aliases: aws_profile

string

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.

purge_tags

boolean

added in 3.2.0 of community.aws

whether to remove tags not present in the tags parameter.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

region

aliases: aws_region, ec2_region

string

The AWS region to use. If not specified then the value of the AWS_REGION or EC2_REGION environment variable, if any, is used. See http://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/rande.html#ec2_region

security_token

aliases: aws_security_token, access_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.

Passing the security_token and profile options at the same time has been deprecated and the options will be made mutually exclusive after 2022-06-01.

state

string

If state=present, the specified public certificate and private key will be uploaded, with Name tag equal to name_tag.

If state=absent, any certificates in this region with a corresponding domain_name, name_tag or certificate_arn will be deleted.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

tags

dictionary

added in 3.2.0 of community.aws

Tags to apply to certificates imported in ACM.

If both name_tag and the ‘Name’ tag in tags are set, the values must be the same.

If the ‘Name’ tag in tags is not set and name_tag is set, the name_tag value is copied to tags.

validate_certs

boolean

When set to “no”, SSL certificates will not be validated for communication with the AWS APIs.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

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

  • When no credentials are explicitly provided the AWS SDK (boto3) that Ansible uses will fall back to its configuration files (typically ~/.aws/credentials). See https://boto3.amazonaws.com/v1/documentation/api/latest/guide/credentials.html for more information.

  • Modules based on the original AWS SDK (boto) may read their default configuration from different files. See https://boto.readthedocs.io/en/latest/boto_config_tut.html for more information.

  • AWS_REGION or EC2_REGION can be typically be used to specify the AWS region, when required, but this can also be defined in the configuration files.
