Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aws_access_key
AWS access key. If not set then the value of the AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID, AWS_ACCESS_KEY or EC2_ACCESS_KEY environment variable is used.

aliases: ec2_access_key, access_key
aws_secret_key
AWS secret key. If not set then the value of the AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY, AWS_SECRET_KEY, or EC2_SECRET_KEY environment variable is used.

aliases: ec2_secret_key, secret_key
ec2_url
Url to use to connect to EC2 or your Eucalyptus cloud (by default the module will use EC2 endpoints). Ignored for modules where region is required. Must be specified for all other modules if region is not used. If not set then the value of the EC2_URL environment variable, if any, is used.
encrypt
bool

(added in 2.5)
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
A boolean value that, if true, creates an encrypted file system. This can not be modfied after the file system is created.
id
ID of Amazon EFS. Either name or ID required for delete.
kms_key_id
(added in 2.5)
The id of the AWS KMS CMK that will be used to protect the encrypted file system. This parameter is only required if you want to use a non-default CMK. If this parameter is not specified, the default CMK for Amazon EFS is used. The key id can be Key ID, Key ID ARN, Key Alias or Key Alias ARN.
name
Creation Token of Amazon EFS file system. Required for create and update. Either name or ID required for delete.
performance_mode
    Choices:
  • general_purpose ←
  • max_io
File system's performance mode to use. Only takes effect during creation.
profile
(added in 1.6)
Uses a boto profile. Only works with boto >= 2.24.0.
purge_tags
bool

(added in 2.5)
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If yes, existing tags will be purged from the resource to match exactly what is defined by tags parameter. If the tags parameter is not set then tags will not be modified.
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
security_token
(added in 1.6)
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:
  • present ←
  • absent
Allows to create, search and destroy Amazon EFS file system
tags
List of tags of Amazon EFS. Should be defined as dictionary In case of 'present' state with list of tags and existing EFS (matched by 'name'), tags of EFS will be replaced with provided data.
targets
List of mounted targets. It should be a list of dictionaries, every dictionary should include next attributes: - subnet_id - Mandatory. The ID of the subnet to add the mount target in. - ip_address - Optional. A valid IPv4 address within the address range of the specified subnet. - security_groups - Optional. List of security group IDs, of the form 'sg-xxxxxxxx'. These must be for the same VPC as subnet specified This data may be modified for existing EFS using state 'present' and new list of mount targets.
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.
wait
bool
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
In case of 'present' state should wait for EFS 'available' life cycle state (of course, if current state not 'deleting' or 'deleted') In case of 'absent' state should wait for EFS 'deleted' life cycle state
wait_timeout Default:
0
How long the module should wait (in seconds) for desired state before returning. Zero means wait as long as necessary.

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
