Requirements

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

  • boto
  • python >= 2.6
  • python-dateutil

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_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.
expiration_date
Indicates the lifetime of the objects that are subject to the rule by the date they will expire. The value must be ISO-8601 format, the time must be midnight and a GMT timezone must be specified.
expiration_days
Indicates the lifetime, in days, of the objects that are subject to the rule. The value must be a non-zero positive integer.
name
required
Name of the s3 bucket
noncurrent_version_expiration_days
(added in 2.6)
Delete noncurrent versions this many days after they become noncurrent
noncurrent_version_storage_class
(added in 2.6)
    Choices:
  • glacier ←
  • onezone_ia
  • standard_ia
Transition noncurrent versions to this storage class
noncurrent_version_transition_days
(added in 2.6)
Transition noncurrent versions this many days after they become noncurrent
noncurrent_version_transitions
(added in 2.6)
A list of transition behaviors to be applied to noncurrent versions for the rule. Each storage class may be used only once. Each transition behavior contains these elements transition_days storage_class
prefix
Prefix identifying one or more objects to which the rule applies. If no prefix is specified, the rule will apply to the whole bucket.
profile
(added in 1.6)
Uses a boto profile. Only works with boto >= 2.24.0.
purge_transitions
bool

(added in 2.6)
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
"Whether to replace all the current transition(s) with the new transition(s). When false, the provided transition(s) will be added, replacing transitions with the same storage_class. When true, existing transitions will be removed and replaced with the new transition(s)
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
rule_id

storage_class
    Choices:
  • glacier ←
  • onezone_ia
  • standard_ia
The storage class to transition to. Currently there are two supported values - 'glacier', 'onezone_ia', or 'standard_ia'.
The 'standard_ia' class is only being available from Ansible version 2.2.
transition_date
Indicates the lifetime of the objects that are subject to the rule by the date they will transition to a different storage class. The value must be ISO-8601 format, the time must be midnight and a GMT timezone must be specified. If transition_days is not specified, this parameter is required."
transition_days
Indicates when, in days, an object transitions to a different storage class. If transition_date is not specified, this parameter is required.
transitions
(added in 2.6)
A list of transition behaviors to be applied to the rule. Each storage class may be used only once. Each transition behavior may contain these elements transition_days transition_date storage_class
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.

Notes

Note

  • If specifying expiration time as days then transition time must also be specified in days
  • If specifying expiration time as a date then transition time must also be specified as a date
  • 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
