Parameters

Parameter

Comments

abort_incomplete_multipart_upload_days

integer

added in 2.2.0 of community.aws

Specifies the days since the initiation of an incomplete multipart upload that Amazon S3 will wait before permanently removing all parts of the upload.

aws_access_key

aliases: ec2_access_key, 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.

aws_ca_bundle

path

The location of a CA Bundle to use when validating SSL certificates.

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

aliases: ec2_secret_key, 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.

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.

This cannot be specified with expire_object_delete_marker

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.

This cannot be specified with expire_object_delete_marker

expire_object_delete_marker

boolean

added in 2.2.0 of community.aws

Indicates whether Amazon S3 will remove a delete marker with no noncurrent versions.

If set to true, the delete marker will be expired; if set to false the policy takes no action.

This cannot be specified with expiration_days or expiration_date.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

name

string / required

Name of the S3 bucket.

noncurrent_version_expiration_days

integer

The number of days after which non-current versions should be deleted.

  • standard_ia

  • intelligent_tiering

  • deep_archive

noncurrent_version_transition_days

integer

The number of days after which non-current versions will be transitioned to the storage class specified in noncurrent_version_storage_class.

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

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.

purge_transitions

boolean

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)

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

region

aliases: aws_region, ec2_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

requester_pays

boolean

The requester_pays option does nothing and will be removed after 2022-06-01

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

  • 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.
