google.cloud.gcp_kms_crypto_key module – Creates a GCP CryptoKey

Note

This module is part of the google.cloud collection (version 1.2.0).

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. You need further requirements to be able to use this module, see Requirements for details.

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

Comments

access_token

string

An OAuth2 access token if credential type is accesstoken.

auth_kind

string / required

The type of credential used.

Choices:

  • "application"

  • "machineaccount"

  • "serviceaccount"

  • "accesstoken"

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

Immutable purpose of CryptoKey. See https://cloud.google.com/kms/docs/reference/rest/v1/projects.locations.keyRings.cryptoKeys#CryptoKeyPurpose for inputs.

Some valid choices include: “ENCRYPT_DECRYPT”, “ASYMMETRIC_SIGN”, “ASYMMETRIC_DECRYPT”

Default: "ENCRYPT_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

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.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

state

string

Whether the given object should exist in GCP

Choices:

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "absent"

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 access_token using the GCP_ACCESS_TOKEN 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.
