list / elements=string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
HashiCorp Vault key URIs to use.
For example, https://vault.example.org:8200/v1/transit/keys/dev.
This corresponds to the sops --hc-vault-transit option.
keyservice
list / elements=string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
Specify key services to use next to the local one.
A key service must be specified in the form protocol://address, for example tcp://myserver.com:5000.
This corresponds to the sops --keyservice option.
kms
list / elements=string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
List of KMS ARNs to use.
This corresponds to the sops --kms option.
mode
raw
The permissions the resulting file or directory should have.
For those used to /usr/bin/chmod remember that modes are actually octal numbers. You must either add a leading zero so that Ansible's YAML parser knows it is an octal number (like 0644 or 01777) or quote it (like '644' or '1777') so Ansible receives a string and can do its own conversion from string into number.
Giving Ansible a number without following one of these rules will end up with a decimal number which will have unexpected results.
As of Ansible 1.8, the mode may be specified as a symbolic mode (for example, u+rwx or u=rw,g=r,o=r).
If mode is not specified and the destination file does not exist, the default umask on the system will be used when setting the mode for the newly created file.
If mode is not specified and the destination file does exist, the mode of the existing file will be used.
Specifying mode is the best way to ensure files are created with the correct permissions. See CVE-2020-1736 for further details.
owner
string
Name of the user that should own the file/directory, as would be fed to chown.
path
path / required

pgp
list / elements=string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
PGP fingerprints to use.
This corresponds to the sops --pgp option.
selevel

The level part of the SELinux file context.
This is the MLS/MCS attribute, sometimes known as the range.
When set to _default, it will use the level portion of the policy if available.
serole
string
The role part of the SELinux file context.
When set to _default, it will use the role portion of the policy if available.
setype
string
The type part of the SELinux file context.
When set to _default, it will use the type portion of the policy if available.
seuser
string
The user part of the SELinux file context.
By default it uses the system policy, where applicable.
When set to _default, it will use the user portion of the policy if available.
shamir_secret_sharing_threshold
integer
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
The number of distinct keys required to retrieve the data key with Shamir's Secret Sharing.
If not set here and in the sops config file, will default to 0.
This corresponds to the sops --shamir-secret-sharing-threshold option.
sops_binary
path
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
Path to the sops binary.
By default uses sops.
unencrypted_regex
string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
Set the unencrypted key suffix.
When specified, only keys matching the regular expression will be left unencrypted.
This corresponds to the sops --unencrypted-regex option.
unencrypted_suffix
string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
Override the unencrypted key suffix.
This corresponds to the sops --unencrypted-suffix option.
unsafe_writes
boolean
added in 2.2 of ansible.builtin
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Influence when to use atomic operation to prevent data corruption or inconsistent reads from the target file.
By default this module uses atomic operations to prevent data corruption or inconsistent reads from the target files, but sometimes systems are configured or just broken in ways that prevent this. One example is docker mounted files, which cannot be updated atomically from inside the container and can only be written in an unsafe manner.
This option allows Ansible to fall back to unsafe methods of updating files when atomic operations fail (however, it doesn't force Ansible to perform unsafe writes).
IMPORTANT! Unsafe writes are subject to race conditions and can lead to data corruption.

Notes

Note

  • Supports check_mode.

community.sops.sops lookup

The sops lookup can be used decrypt sops-encrypted files.

Examples

- name: Encrypt a secret text
  community.sops.sops_encrypt:
    path: text-data.sops
    content_text: This is a secret text.

- name: Encrypt the contents of a file
  community.sops.sops_encrypt:
    path: binary-data.sops
    content_binary: "{{ lookup('ansible.builtin.file', '/path/to/file', rstrip=false) | b64encode }}"

- name: Encrypt some datastructure as YAML
  community.sops.sops_encrypt:
    path: stuff.sops.yaml
    content_yaml: "{{ result }}"
