name
required
Name of EKS cluster
profile

Uses a boto profile. Only works with boto >= 2.24.0.
region
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

aliases: aws_region, ec2_region
role_arn

AWS STS security token. If not set then the value of the AWS_SECURITY_TOKEN or EC2_SECURITY_TOKEN environment variable is used.

aliases: access_token
state
    Choices:
  • absent
  • present ←
desired state of the EKS cluster
subnets
list of subnet IDs for the Kubernetes cluster
validate_certs
bool

(added in 1.5)
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
When set to "no", SSL certificates will not be validated for boto versions >= 2.6.0.
version
Kubernetes version - defaults to latest
wait
bool
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Specifies whether the module waits until the cluster becomes active after creation. It takes "usually less than 10 minutes" per AWS documentation.
wait_timeout Default:
1200
The duration in seconds to wait for the cluster to become active. Defaults to 1200 seconds (20 minutes).

Notes

Note

  • 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_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
  • Ansible uses the boto configuration file (typically ~/.boto) if no credentials are provided. See https://boto.readthedocs.io/en/latest/boto_config_tut.html
  • AWS_REGION or EC2_REGION can be typically be used to specify the AWS region, when required, but this can also be configured in the boto config file
