Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
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
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.
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
expiration_date
string
Indicates the lifetime of the objects that are subject to the rule by the date they will expire. The value must be ISO-8601 format, the time must be midnight and a GMT timezone must be specified.
expiration_days
integer
Indicates the lifetime, in days, of the objects that are subject to the rule. The value must be a non-zero positive integer.
name
string / required
Name of the s3 bucket
noncurrent_version_expiration_days
integer
Delete noncurrent versions this many days after they become noncurrent
noncurrent_version_storage_class
string
    Choices:
  • glacier ←
  • onezone_ia
  • standard_ia
Transition noncurrent versions to this storage class
noncurrent_version_transition_days
integer
Transition noncurrent versions this many days after they become noncurrent
noncurrent_version_transitions
list / elements=dictionary
A list of transition behaviors to be applied to noncurrent versions for the rule. Each storage class may be used only once. Each transition behavior contains these elements transition_days storage_class
prefix
string
Prefix identifying one or more objects to which the rule applies. If no prefix is specified, the rule will apply to the whole bucket.
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
purge_transitions
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
"Whether to replace all the current transition(s) with the new transition(s). When false, the provided transition(s) will be added, replacing transitions with the same storage_class. When true, existing transitions will be removed and replaced with the new transition(s)
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
requester_pays
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes

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
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Create or remove the lifecycle rule
status
string
    Choices:
  • enabled ←
  • disabled
If 'enabled', the rule is currently being applied. If 'disabled', the rule is not currently being applied.
storage_class
string
    Choices:
  • glacier ←
  • onezone_ia
  • standard_ia
The storage class to transition to. Currently there are two supported values - 'glacier', 'onezone_ia', or 'standard_ia'.
The 'standard_ia' class is only being available from Ansible version 2.2.
transition_date
string
Indicates the lifetime of the objects that are subject to the rule by the date they will transition to a different storage class. The value must be ISO-8601 format, the time must be midnight and a GMT timezone must be specified. If transition_days is not specified, this parameter is required."
transition_days
integer
Indicates when, in days, an object transitions to a different storage class. If transition_date is not specified, this parameter is required.

validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
When set to "no", SSL certificates will not be validated for boto versions >= 2.6.0.

Notes

Note

  • If specifying expiration time as days then transition time must also be specified in days

  • If specifying expiration time as a date then transition time must also be specified as a date

  • 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
