AWS Integration Pack

The StackStorm AWS integration pack supplies action integration for numerous AWS services.

Prerequisites

AWS and Stackstorm, up and running.

Setup

Install AWS pack on StackStorm

  1. Install the AWS pack:

    # Install AWS
    st2 pack install aws
    
    # Check it
    st2 action list -p aws
    
  2. Copy the example configuration in aws.yaml.example to /opt/stackstorm/configs/aws.yaml and edit as required. It must contain:

  • region - Region where AWS commands will be executed
  • aws_access_key_id - Access key
  • aws_secret_access_key_id - Secret Access key

You can generate the access key and secret access key by following these directions:

http://docs.aws.amazon.com/IAM/latest/UserGuide/ManagingCredentials.html#Using_CreateAccessKey

If you would like to use the IAM role assigned to the instance stackstorm is running set the key and secret to None and set the region.

---
region: "us-east-1"
aws_access_key_id: None
aws_secret_access_key: None
st2_user_data: ""

In previous versions there was a 'setup' object within the config, which has been deprecated. This will break the configuration where iam roles are being used

  • service_notifications_sensor.host - Listen host for the HTTP interface.
  • service_notifications_sensor.port - Listen port for the HTTP interface.
  • service_notifications_sensor.path - Path where the events need to be sent.

Note : When modifying the configuration in /opt/stackstorm/configs/ please remember to tell StackStorm to load these new values by running st2ctl reload --register-configs

st2_user_data

Optionally, you can set the user_data to set a default file to be used during new instance creation. Put your user_data file somewhere accessible by the StackStorm user, and use the st2_user_data config option to set it.

st2_user_data: "/full/path/to/file"

This file/script will be used for all invocations of the ec2_run_instances action

Actions

Prior to installation of the aws pack, you can get the list of available actions here:

https://github.com/StackStorm-Exchange/stackstorm-aws/tree/master/actions

Once you have installed the aws pack, you can get a list of actions in the AWS pack using:

st2 action list -p aws

To get information on a specific action, please run:

root@2e1d15fd5d07:/# st2 action get aws.route53_list_hosted_zones

Since this action does not take any required parameters and won't create any resources that will cost us anything, let's run it and see what it returns.

$ st2 run aws.route53_list_hosted_zones

To regenerate the actions used by this pack, run the following:

source /opt/stackstorm/virtualenvs/aws/bin/activate
cd /opt/stackstorm/packs/aws/etc/st2packgen
python st2packgen.py -d /opt/stackstorm/packs/aws/actions
st2ctl reload --register-actions

st2packgen.py will overwrite any existing actions at /opt/stackstorm/packs/aws/actions.

Sensors

ServiceNotificationsSensor

This sensor exposes a HTTP interface and listens for service event notifications which are delivered via AWS SNS service using HTTP(s) endpoint.

Currently it supports event notifications generated by the S3 service - http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/NotificationHowTo.html

Keep in mind that this sensor doesn't implement any kind of authentication. This means that if the sensor is not behind a proxy which implements authentication and is accessible to the outside world, you need to configure path setting to include a random secret which is only known to the AWS SNS service.

aws.service_notification

This trigger is emitted for every service event notification.

Example trigger payload:

{
    "source": "aws:s3",
    "region": "us-west-2",
    "name": "ObjectCreated:Put",
    "timestamp": 123456789,
    "response_elements": {
        "x-amz-id-2": "blahid//4U+rk=",
        "x-amz-request-id": "5FF5BB6EDE3631F8"
    },
    "request_parameters": {
        "sourceIPAddress": "127.0.0.1"
    },
    "payload": {
        "configurationId": "snsnotificationforput",
        "object": {
            "eTag": "5dfd7f29bce6d94dc5c73553f269659b",
            "key": "myfile.tar.gz",
            "size": 178428
        },
        "bucket": {
            "ownerIdentity": {
                "principalId": "BLAHBLAH"
            },
            "name": "testbucket33333",
            "arn": "arn:aws:s3:::testbucket33333"
        },
        "s3SchemaVersion": "1.0"
    }
}

source, region, name and timestamp attributes are included with all the events, but the format and values inside the payload attribute different across different services and event types.

For a list of supported S3 event types see http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/NotificationHowTo.html#supported-notification-event-types

AWS SQS sensor

This is generic SQS Sensor using boto3 api to fetch messages from SQS queue. After receiving a message it's content is passed as payload to a trigger 'aws.sqs_new_message'

This sensor can be configured either by using aws.yaml or by creating following values in datastore:

  • aws.input_queues (list queues as comma separated string: first_queue,second_queue)
  • aws.aws_access_key_id
  • aws.aws_secret_access_key
  • aws.region
  • aws.max_number_of_messages (must be between 1 - 10)

For configuration in aws.yaml with config like this

aws_access_key_id:
aws_access_key_id:
region:
sqs_sensor:
  input_queues:
    - first_queue
    - second_queue
sqs_other:
  max_number_of_messages: 1

If any value exist in datastore it will be taken instead of any value in aws.yaml

aws.sqs_new_message

This trigger is emitted when a single message is received from a queue.

{
  "queue": "first_sqs_queue",
  "body": "example message body"
}
