integer

How many seconds to wait. Cluster creation can take up to 20-30 minutes.

Default: 3600

Notes

Note

  • All operations are time consuming, for example create takes 20-30 minutes, update kafka version – more than one hour, update configuration – 10-15 minutes;

  • Cluster’s brokers get evenly distributed over a number of availability zones that’s equal to the number of subnets.

  • Caution: For modules, environment variables and configuration files are read from the Ansible ‘host’ context and not the ‘controller’ context. As such, files may need to be explicitly copied to the ‘host’. For lookup and connection plugins, environment variables and configuration files are read from the Ansible ‘controller’ context and not the ‘host’ context.

  • 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.
