Synopsis

Requirements

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

  • boto
  • boto3
  • botocore
  • python >= 2.6

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aws_access_key
string
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
string
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
cluster_name
- / required
The name of the cluster to configure cross-region snapshots for.

aliases: cluster
debug_botocore_endpoint_logs
boolean
added in 2.8
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Use a botocore.endpoint logger to parse the unique (rather than total) "resource:action" API calls made during a task, outputing the set to the resource_actions key in the task results. Use the aws_resource_action callback to output to total list made during a playbook. The ANSIBLE_DEBUG_BOTOCORE_LOGS environment variable may also be used.
destination_region
- / required
The region to copy snapshots to

aliases: destination
ec2_url
string
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.
profile
string
Uses a boto profile. Only works with boto >= 2.24.0.
region
string / required
The clusters region

aliases: source
security_token
string
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
snapshot_copy_grant
-
A grant for Amazon Redshift to use a master key in the destination region.
See http://boto3.readthedocs.io/en/latest/reference/services/redshift.html#Redshift.Client.create_snapshot_copy_grant

aliases: copy_grant
snapshot_retention_period
- / required
Keep cross-region snapshots for N number of days

aliases: retention_period
state
- / required
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Create or remove the cross-region snapshot configuration.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
When set to "no", SSL certificates will not be validated for boto versions >= 2.6.0.

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

- name: configure cross-region snapshot on cluster `johniscool`
  redshift_cross_region_snapshots:
    cluster_name: johniscool
    state: present
    region: us-east-1
    destination_region: us-west-2
    retention_period: 1

- name: configure cross-region snapshot on kms-encrypted cluster
  redshift_cross_region_snapshots:
    cluster_name: whatever
    state: present
    source: us-east-1
    destination: us-west-2
    copy_grant: 'my-grant-in-destination'
    retention_period: 10

- name: disable cross-region snapshots, necessary before most cluster modifications (rename, resize)
  redshift_cross_region_snapshots:
    cluster_name: whatever
    state: absent
    region: us-east-1
    destination_region: us-west-2
