alias_hosted_zone_id

string

The hosted zone identifier.

aws_access_key

aliases: ec2_access_key, access_key

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

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.

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

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.

failover

string

Failover resource record sets only. Whether this is the primary or secondary resource record set. Allowed values are PRIMARY and SECONDARY

Mutually exclusive with weight and region.

Choices:

  • SECONDARY

  • PRIMARY

geo_location

dictionary

added in 3.3.0 of community.aws

Allows to control how Amazon Route 53 responds to DNS queries based on the geographic origin of the query.

Two geolocation resource record sets that specify same geographic location cannot be created.

Non-geolocation resource record sets that have the same values for the Name and Type elements as geolocation resource record sets cannot be created.

continent_code

string

The two-letter code for the continent.

Specifying continent_code with either country_code or subdivision_code returns an InvalidInput error.

country_code

string

The two-letter code for a country.

Amazon Route 53 uses the two-letter country codes that are specified in ISO standard 3166-1 alpha-2 .

subdivision_code

string

The two-letter code for a state of the United States.

To specify subdivision_code, country_code must be set to US.

health_check

string

Health check to associate with this record

hosted_zone_id

string

The Hosted Zone ID of the DNS zone to modify.

This is a required parameter, if parameter zone is not supplied.

identifier

string

Have to be specified for Weighted, latency-based and failover resource record sets only. An identifier that differentiates among multiple resource record sets that have the same combination of DNS name and type.

overwrite

boolean

Whether an existing record should be overwritten on create if values do not match.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

private_zone

boolean

If set to true, the private zone matching the requested name within the domain will be used if there are both public and private zones.

The default is to use the public zone.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

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.

record

string / required

The full DNS record to create or delete.

region

string

Latency-based resource record sets only Among resource record sets that have the same combination of DNS name and type, a value that determines which region this should be associated with for the latency-based routing

Mutually exclusive with weight and failover.

retry_interval

integer

In the case that Route 53 is still servicing a prior request, this module will wait and try again after this many seconds. If you have many domain names, the default of 500 seconds may be too long.

Default: 500

security_token

aliases: aws_session_token, session_token, 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.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

wait_timeout

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.
