google.cloud.gcp_kms_crypto_key – Creates a GCP CryptoKey

Note

This plugin is part of the google.cloud collection (version 1.0.2).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install google.cloud.

To use it in a playbook, specify: google.cloud.gcp_kms_crypto_key.

Synopsis

  • A CryptoKey represents a logical key that can be used for cryptographic operations.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • python >= 2.6

  • requests >= 2.18.4

  • google-auth >= 1.3.0

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
auth_kind
string / required
    Choices:
  • application
  • machineaccount
  • serviceaccount
The type of credential used.
env_type
string
Specifies which Ansible environment you're running this module within.
This should not be set unless you know what you're doing.
This only alters the User Agent string for any API requests.
key_ring
string / required
The KeyRing that this key belongs to.
Format: `'projects/{{project}}/locations/{{location}}/keyRings/{{keyRing}}'`.
labels
dictionary
Labels with user-defined metadata to apply to this resource.
name
string / required
The resource name for the CryptoKey.
project
string
The Google Cloud Platform project to use.
purpose
string
Default:
"ENCRYPT_DECRYPT"
Some valid choices include: "ENCRYPT_DECRYPT", "ASYMMETRIC_SIGN", "ASYMMETRIC_DECRYPT"
rotation_period
string
Every time this period passes, generate a new CryptoKeyVersion and set it as the primary.
The first rotation will take place after the specified period. The rotation period has the format of a decimal number with up to 9 fractional digits, followed by the letter `s` (seconds). It must be greater than a day (ie, 86400).
scopes
list / elements=string
Array of scopes to be used
service_account_contents
jsonarg
The contents of a Service Account JSON file, either in a dictionary or as a JSON string that represents it.
service_account_email
string
An optional service account email address if machineaccount is selected and the user does not wish to use the default email.
service_account_file
path
The path of a Service Account JSON file if serviceaccount is selected as type.
skip_initial_version_creation
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Default:
"false"
If set to true, the request will create a CryptoKey without any CryptoKeyVersions. You must use the `google_kms_key_ring_import_job` resource to import the CryptoKeyVersion.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Whether the given object should exist in GCP
version_template
dictionary
A template describing settings for new crypto key versions.
algorithm
string / required
The algorithm to use when creating a version based on this template.
See the [algorithm reference](https://cloud.google.com/kms/docs/reference/rest/v1/CryptoKeyVersionAlgorithm) for possible inputs.
protection_level
string
The protection level to use when creating a version based on this template.
Some valid choices include: "SOFTWARE", "HSM"

Notes

Note

  • API Reference: https://cloud.google.com/kms/docs/reference/rest/v1/projects.locations.keyRings.cryptoKeys

  • Creating a key: https://cloud.google.com/kms/docs/creating-keys#create_a_key

  • for authentication, you can set service_account_file using the gcp_service_account_file env variable.

  • for authentication, you can set service_account_contents using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_CONTENTS env variable.

  • For authentication, you can set service_account_email using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_EMAIL env variable.

  • For authentication, you can set auth_kind using the GCP_AUTH_KIND env variable.

  • For authentication, you can set scopes using the GCP_SCOPES env variable.

  • Environment variables values will only be used if the playbook values are not set.

  • The service_account_email and service_account_file options are mutually exclusive.
