community.aws.aws_api_gateway – Manage AWS API Gateway APIs

Note

This plugin is part of the community.aws collection.

To install it use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.aws.

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

New in version 1.0.0: of community.aws

Synopsis

  • Allows for the management of API Gateway APIs

  • Normally you should give the api_id since there is no other stable guaranteed unique identifier for the API. If you do not give api_id then a new API will be create each time this is run.

  • Beware that there are very hard limits on the rate that you can call API Gateway’s REST API. You may need to patch your boto. See https://github.com/boto/boto3/issues/876 and discuss with your AWS rep.

  • swagger_file and swagger_text are passed directly on to AWS transparently whilst swagger_dict is an ansible dict which is converted to JSON before the API definitions are uploaded.

Requirements

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

  • boto

  • boto3

  • python >= 2.6

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_id
string
The ID of the API you want to manage.
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
cache_enabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Enable API GW caching of backend responses. Defaults to false.
cache_size
string
    Choices:
  • 0.5 ←
  • 1.6
  • 6.1
  • 13.5
  • 28.4
  • 58.2
  • 118
  • 237
Size in GB of the API GW cache, becomes effective when cache_enabled is true.
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.
deploy_desc
string
Default:
"Automatic deployment by Ansible."
Description of the deployment - recorded and visible in the AWS console.
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
endpoint_type
string
    Choices:
  • EDGE ←
  • REGIONAL
  • PRIVATE
Type of endpoint configuration, use EDGE for an edge optimized API endpoint,
REGIONAL for just a regional deploy or PRIVATE for a private API.
This will flag will only be used when creating a new API Gateway setup, not for updates.
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.

aliases: aws_profile
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

aliases: aws_region, ec2_region
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.
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.

aliases: aws_security_token, access_token
stage
string
The name of the stage the API should be deployed to.
stage_canary_settings
dictionary
Canary settings for the deployment of the stage.
Dict with following settings:
percentTraffic: The percent (0-100) of traffic diverted to a canary deployment.
deploymentId: The ID of the canary deployment.
stageVariableOverrides: Stage variables overridden for a canary release deployment.
useStageCache: A Boolean flag to indicate whether the canary deployment uses the stage cache or not.
stage_variables
dictionary
ENV variables for the stage. Define a dict of key values pairs for variables.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Create or delete API Gateway.
swagger_dict

Swagger definitions API ansible dictionary which will be converted to JSON and uploaded.
swagger_file

JSON or YAML file containing swagger definitions for API. Exactly one of swagger_file, swagger_text or swagger_dict must be present.

aliases: src, api_file
swagger_text
string
Swagger definitions for API in JSON or YAML as a string direct from playbook.
tracing_enabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Specifies whether active tracing with X-ray is enabled for the API GW stage.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
When set to "no", SSL certificates will not be validated for boto versions >= 2.6.0.

Notes

Note

  • A future version of this module will probably use tags or another ID so that an API can be create only once.

  • As an early work around an intermediate version will probably do the same using a tag embedded in the API name.

  • 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
