Recently AWS added support for authentication at the ALB (Application Load Balancer) layer using Cognito and OpenID which involves additional Listener rule actions.

Currently the 'elb_application_lb' module can create the ALB with these additional rule actions, however updates fail with a KeyError exception as the module expects to be able to access a 'TargetGroupArn' key in the first element in either the 'DefaultActions' keys of the listener or the 'Actions' key of the listener rule.

In this change, the modules checks to see if the lists of actions are equivalent and then updates the actions accordingly. For situations where there are multiple actions, the lists are sorted by the Order key of each element and then compared.

It looks like the AuthenticateCognitoConfig change requires botocore >= 1.10.30. It might be worth catching exceptions associated with having an older botocore and trying to use this functionality

The elb_application_lb module has a test suite in test/integration/targets - as such, this feature request must have an associated test. A test that checks both older and newer botocore versions would be appreciated (the ecs_cluster test suite has an example of this type of test - see

Currently the new authentication actions require the listener be configured for HTTPS, which in turn requires an ACM certificate be associated with the ALB. The authenticate-cognito action also requires a valid Cognito user pool. Ansible does not have modules for creating ACM certs or Cognito User Pools, so I would not be able to test these additional actions.
Would it be acceptable to use the command (or shell) module to make the necessary awscli call to create these resources? Are there any guidelines I should keep in mind when creating these tests?
