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

Examples

# Note: These examples do not set authentication details, see the AWS Guide for details.

# Basic creation example:
- name: Set up Kinesis Stream with 10 shards and wait for the stream to become ACTIVE
  kinesis_stream:
    name: test-stream
    shards: 10
    wait: yes
    wait_timeout: 600
  register: test_stream

# Basic creation example with tags:
- name: Set up Kinesis Stream with 10 shards, tag the environment, and wait for the stream to become ACTIVE
  kinesis_stream:
    name: test-stream
    shards: 10
    tags:
      Env: development
    wait: yes
    wait_timeout: 600
  register: test_stream

# Basic creation example with tags and increase the retention period from the default 24 hours to 48 hours:
- name: Set up Kinesis Stream with 10 shards, tag the environment, increase the retention period and wait for the stream to become ACTIVE
  kinesis_stream:
    name: test-stream
    retention_period: 48
    shards: 10
    tags:
      Env: development
    wait: yes
    wait_timeout: 600
  register: test_stream

# Basic delete example:
- name: Delete Kinesis Stream test-stream and wait for it to finish deleting.
  kinesis_stream:
    name: test-stream
    state: absent
    wait: yes
    wait_timeout: 600
  register: test_stream

# Basic enable encryption example:
- name: Encrypt Kinesis Stream test-stream.
  kinesis_stream:
    name: test-stream
    state: present
    encryption_state: enabled
    encryption_type: KMS
    key_id: alias/aws/kinesis
    wait: yes
    wait_timeout: 600
  register: test_stream

# Basic disable encryption example:
- name: Encrypt Kinesis Stream test-stream.
  kinesis_stream:
    name: test-stream
    state: present
    encryption_state: disabled
    encryption_type: KMS
    key_id: alias/aws/kinesis
    wait: yes
    wait_timeout: 600
  register: test_stream
