This gem provides support required for running ManageIQ Smart State Analysis (SSA) on Amazon Instances and Images. There are two use cases in which the gem is used: when running in AWS as an agent, the scanning instance installs the gem to perform SSA on Instances and Images attached to it; on a ManageIQ appliance, the gem is used to issue requests for SSA and handle the responses.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'amazon_ssa_support'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install amazon_ssa_support


To queue an SSA Extract Request:

ssaq_args                 = {}
ssaq_args[:ssa_bucket]    = bucket_name
ssaq_args[:region]        = region_name
ssaq_args[:sqs]           = connected_sqs_service
ssaq_args[:s3]            = connected_s3_service
ssaq =
ssaq.send_extract_request(ems_reference, job_id, AmazonSsaSupport::SsaExtractor::CATEGORIES)

To obtain the SSA Extract Response:

reply = ssaq.reply_loop
