Ansible AWS CLI Playbook

Ansible playbook to install AWS CLI on Ubuntu 14.04. Should work on most other versions of Ubuntu too.


  • Clone or download the repo to your Ansible machine
  • Add your host information within inventories/hosts
  • Add your AWS creditentials within vars/vars.yml

Run Playbook

Below is how I prefer to run Ansible playbooks since it allows you to choose the host and SSH user dynamically.

ansible-playbook -i inventories/hosts playbook.yml --extra-vars="hosts=vagrant user=vagrant" --ask-pass

The --extra-vars parameter sets the "host" and "user" variable in the playbook file. And --ask-pass will prompt you for a password.

Questions, comments, or suggestions are welcome!

Please submit an issue if you have any questions or want to help improve this playbook. Thanks!
