Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Configuration Comments
_valid_extensions
list / elements=string
Default:
[".sops.yml", ".sops.yaml", ".sops.json"]
Check all of these extensions when looking for 'variable' files which should be YAML or JSON or vaulted versions of these.
This affects vars_files, include_vars, inventory and vars plugins among others.
aws_access_key_id
string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
The AWS access key ID to use for requests to AWS.
Sets the environment variable AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID for the sops call.
aws_profile
string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
The AWS profile to use for requests to AWS.
This corresponds to the sops --aws-profile option.
aws_secret_access_key
string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
The AWS secret access key to use for requests to AWS.
Sets the environment variable AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY for the sops call.
aws_session_token
string
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
The AWS session token to use for requests to AWS.
Sets the environment variable AWS_SESSION_TOKEN for the sops call.
cache
boolean
added in 0.2.0 of community.sops
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
ini entries:

[community.sops]
vars_cache = yes

env:ANSIBLE_VARS_SOPS_PLUGIN_CACHE
Whether to cache decrypted files or not.
If the cache is disabled, the files will be decrypted for almost every task. This is very slow!
Only disable caching if you modify the variable files during a playbook run and want the updated result to be available from the next task on.
Note that setting stage to inventory has the same effect as setting cache to true: the variables will be loaded only once (during inventory loading) and the vars plugin will not be called for every task.
config_path
path
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
Path to the sops configuration file.
If not set, sops will recursively search for the config file starting at the file that is encrypted or decrypted.
This corresponds to the sops --config option.
enable_local_keyservice
boolean
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Tell sops to use local key service.
This corresponds to the sops --enable-local-keyservice 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.
sops_binary
path
added in 1.0.0 of community.sops
Path to the sops binary.
By default uses sops.
stage
string
added in 0.2.0 of community.sops
    Choices:
  • all
  • task
  • inventory
ini entries:

[community.sops]
vars_stage = None

env:ANSIBLE_VARS_SOPS_PLUGIN_STAGE
Control when this vars plugin may be executed.
Setting this option to all will run the vars plugin after importing inventory and whenever it is demanded by a task.
Setting this option to task will only run the vars plugin whenever it is demanded by a task.
Setting this option to inventory will only run the vars plugin after parsing inventory.
If this option is omitted, the global RUN_VARS_PLUGINS configuration is used to determine when to execute the vars plugin.
