If the tags parameter is not set then tags will not be modified, even if purge_tags=True.

Tag keys beginning with aws: are reserved by Amazon and can not be modified. As such they will be ignored for the purposes of the purge_tags parameter. See the Amazon documentation for more information https://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/aws_tagging.html#tag-conventions.

targets

list / elements=dictionary

List of mounted targets. It should be a list of dictionaries, every dictionary should include next attributes: This data may be modified for existing EFS using state ‘present’ and new list of mount targets.

wait_timeout

integer

How long the module should wait (in seconds) for desired state before returning. Zero means wait as long as necessary.

Default: 0

Notes

Note

  • Caution: Environment variables and configuration files are read from the Ansible ‘host’ context and not the ‘controller’ context. Files may need to be explicitly copied to the ‘host’.

  • The AWS SDK (boto3) that Ansible uses may also read defaults for credentials and other settings, such as the region, from its configuration files in the Ansible ‘host’ context (typically ~/.aws/credentials). See https://boto3.amazonaws.com/v1/documentation/api/latest/guide/credentials.html for more information.
