Overview

The aws module manages Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources to build out cloud infrastructure.

Description

Amazon Web Services exposes a powerful API for creating and managing its infrastructure as a service platform. The aws module allows you to drive that API using Puppet code.

In the simplest case, this allows you to create new EC2 instances from Puppet code. More importantly, it allows you to describe your entire AWS infrastructure and to model the relationships between different components.

This module now includes tasks which will facilitate in installing the module dependencies and listing a subset of EC2 instances for you.

Setup

Requirements

  • Puppet 4.7 or greater
  • Ruby 1.9 or greater
  • Amazon AWS Ruby SDK (available as a gem)
  • Retries gem

Installing the aws module

  1. Install the retries gem and the Amazon AWS Ruby SDK gem, using the same Ruby used by Puppet. For Puppet 4.x and beyond, install the gems with this command:

'/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/gem install aws-sdk retries'

  1. Set these environment variables for your AWS access credentials:
export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=your_access_key_id
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=your_secret_access_key

Alternatively, you can place the credentials in a file at ~/.aws/credentials or puppetlabs_aws_credentials.ini in the Puppet confdir ('$settings::confdir') based on the following template:

[default]
aws_access_key_id = your_access_key_id
aws_secret_access_key = your_secret_access_key

If you have Puppet running on AWS, and you're running the module examples, you can instead use IAM. To do this, assign the correct role to the instance from which you're running the examples. For a sample profile with all the required permissions, see the IAM profile example.

  1. Finally, install the module with:
puppet module install puppetlabs-aws

A note on regions

By default the module looks through all regions in AWS when determining if something is available. This can be a little slow. If you know what you're doing you can speed things up by targeting a single region using an environment variable.

export AWS_REGION=eu-west-1

A note on proxies

By default the module accesses the AWS API directly, but if you're in an environment that doesn't have direct access you can provide a proxy setting for all traffic like so:

export PUPPET_AWS_PROXY=http://localhost:8888

Configuring the aws module using an ini file

The AWS region and HTTP proxy can be provided in a file called 'puppetlabs_aws_configuration.ini' in the Puppet confdir ('$settings::confdir') using this format:

    [default]
      region = us-east-1
      http_proxy = http://proxy.example.com:80

Usage

Creating resources

You can set up EC2 instances with a variety of AWS features, as well as a VPC, security group, and load balancer.

Setup a VPC:

ec2_vpc { 'name-of-vpc':
  ensure     => present,
  region     => 'us-east-1',
  cidr_block => '10.0.0.0/24',
  tags       => {
    tag_name => 'value',
  },
}

Setup a subnet:

ec2_vpc_subnet { 'name-of-subnet':
  ensure                  => present,
  region                  => 'us-east-1',
  cidr_block              => '10.0.0.0/24',
  availability_zone       => 'us-east-1a',
  map_public_ip_on_launch => true,
  vpc                     => 'name-of-vpc,
  tags                    => {
    tag_name => 'value',
  },
}

Setup a security group:

ec2_securitygroup { 'name-of-security-group':
  ensure      => present,
  region      => 'us-east-1',
  vpc         => 'name-of-vpc',
  description => 'a description of the group',
  ingress     => [{
    protocol  => 'tcp',
    port      => 22,
    cidr      => '0.0.0.0/0',
  }],
  tags        => {
    tag_name  => 'value',
  },
}

Setup an instance:

ec2_instance { 'name-of-instance':
  ensure            => running,
  region            => 'us-east-1',
  availability_zone => 'us-east-1a',
  image_id          => 'ami-123456', # you need to select your own AMI
  instance_type     => 't2.micro',
  key_name          => 'name-of-existing-key',
  subnet            => 'name-of-subnet',
  security_groups   => ['name-of-security-group'],
  block_devices       => [ {"delete_on_termination"=>"true", "device_name"=>"/dev/sdc", "volume_size"=>100, "encrypted"=>"Yes",}, {"delete_on_termination"=>"true", "device_name"=>"/dev/sde", "volume_size"=>1000, "encrypted"=>"Yes",}, ],
  tags              => {
    tag_name => 'value',
  },
}

Setup a load balancer:

elb_loadbalancer { 'name-of-load-balancer':
  ensure                  => present,
  region                  => 'us-east-1',
  availability_zones      => ['us-east-1a', 'us-east-1b'],
  instances               => ['name-of-instance', 'another-instance'],
  security_groups         => ['name-of-security-group'],
  listeners               => [
    {
      protocol              => 'HTTP',
      load_balancer_port    => 80,
      instance_protocol     => 'HTTP',
      instance_port         => 80,
    },{
      protocol              => 'HTTPS',
      load_balancer_port    => 443,
      instance_protocol     => 'HTTPS',
      instance_port         => 8080,
      ssl_certificate_id    => 'arn:aws:iam::123456789000:server-certificate/yourcert.com',
      policies              =>  [
        {
          'policy_type'       => 'SSLNegotiationPolicyType',
          'policy_attributes' => {
            'Protocol-TLSv1.1' => false,
            'Protocol-TLSv1.2' => true,
          }
        }
      ]
    }
  ],
  health_check            => {
    'healthy_threshold'   => '10',
    'interval'            => '30',
    'target'              => 'HTTP:80/health_check',
    'timeout'             => '5',
    'unhealthy_threshold' => '2'
  },
  tags                    => {
    tag_name              => 'value',
  },
}

To destroy any of these resources, set ensure => absent.

Managing resources from the command line

The module has basic puppet resource support, so you can manage AWS resources from the command line.

For example, the following command lists all the security groups:

puppet resource ec2_securitygroup

You can also create new resources:

puppet resource ec2_securitygroup test-group ensure=present description="test description" region=us-east-1

and then destroy them, all from the command line:

puppet resource ec2_securitygroup test-group ensure=absent region=sa-east-1

Managing AWS infrastructure

You can use the aws module to audit AWS resources, launch autoscaling groups in VPC, perform unit testing, and more. The examples directory in the module contains a variety of usage examples that should give you an idea of what's possible:

The short name of the role to assign to the cluster upon creation.

task_definition

Required.

The name of the task definition to run.

Type: ecs_task_definition

Type representing ECS clusters.

ECS task definitions can be a bit fussy. To discover the existing containers we use the 'name' option within a container definition to calculate the differences between what is, and what should be. Omitting the 'name' option may be done, but it would result in a new container being generated each Puppet run, and thus a new task definition. For this reason it is recommended that the 'name' option be defined in each container definition and that the name chosen be unique within an 'ecs_task_definition' resource.

ecs_task_definition { 'dockerdocker':
  container_definitions => [
    {
      'name'          => 'zleslietesting',
      'cpu'           => '1024',
      'environment'   => {
        'one' => '1',
        'two' => '2',
      },
      'essential'     => 'true',
      'image'         => 'debian:jessie',
      'memory'        => '512',
      'port_mappings' => [
        {
          'container_port' => '8081',
          'host_port'      => '8082',
          'protocol'       => 'tcp',
        },
      ],
    }
  ],
}

It's important to consider the behavior of the provider in the case of missing container options.

If the task for an 'ecs_task_definition' has been discovered to exist, then the discovered container options are merged with the requested options. This results in the following behavior: Container options not defined in the puppet resource, but are found to exist in the discovered running container are copied from the running container.

In the case where a user wishes to remove an option from the container, one of the following can be applied.

  • Name the container something else. This results in a failure to match the existing container against the desired container, and replaces the container entirely.

  • Set an empty value for the option. This results in the option specified by the user replacing the value defined in the existing container. For string options, simply setting the value to '', or as an array value [], etc.

container_definitions

An array of hashes representing the container definition. See the example above.

name

Required.

The name of the task to manage.

volumes

An array of hashes to handle for the task. The hashes representing a volume should be in the following form:

{
  name => "StringNameForReference",
  host => {
    source_path => "/some/path",
  },
}
replace_image

A boolean to turn off the replacement of container images. This enables Puppet to create, but not modify the image of a container once created. This is useful in environments where external CI tooling is responsible for modifying the image of a container, allowing a dualistic approach for managing ECS.

role

A string of the short name or full ARN of the IAM role that containers in this task should assume.

Type: iam_group

iam_group { 'root':
  ensure  => present,
  members => [ 'alice', 'bob' ]
}

Required.

An array of user names to include in the group. Users not specified in this array will be removed.

Type: iam_instance_profile

iam_instance_profile { 'my_iam_role':
  ensure  => present,
  roles => [ 'my_iam_role' ],
}
ensure

Specifies the basic state of the resource.

Valid values are: 'present', 'absent'.

name

Required.

The name of the IAM instance profile.

roles

Optional.

The IAM role(s) to associate this instance profile with.

Accepts an array for multiple roles.

Type: iam_policy

IAMPolicies manage access to AWS resources. The 'iam_policy' type only manages the document content of the policy, and not which entities have the policy attached. See the 'iam_policy_attachment' type for managing the application of the policy created with the 'iam_policy' type.

iam_policy { 'root':
  ensure      => present,
  document    => '{
      "Version": "2012-10-17",
      "Statement": [
        {
          "Effect": "Allow",
          "Action": "*",
          "Resource": "*"
        }
      ]
    }',
}

It is worth noting here that the 'iam_policy' type will allow the creation of an IAM policy who's name is identical to the built-in policies. In such a case when two policies exist with the same name, one built-in and one user-defined, the user-defined is selected for management.

document

Required.

A string containing the IAM policy in JSON format.

Type: iam_policy_attachment

The 'iam_policy_attachment' resource manages which entities are attached to the named policy. See the note in the 'iam_policy' above about duplicate policy name selection.

You only need to set the 'users', 'groups' or 'roles' parameters to manage the policy attachments for those resources. Leaving one of those parameters undefined ignores the attachment for those entities. Defining attachment for an entity as an empty array will detach all entities of that flavor from the named policy.

iam_policy_attachment { 'root':
  groups => ['root'],
  users  => [],
}
groups

Optional.

An array of group names to attach to the policy.

If not mentioned in this array it will be detached from the policy.

users

Optional.

An array of user names to attach to the policy.

If not mentioned in this array it will be detached from the policy.

roles

Optional.

An array of role names to attach to the policy.

If not mentioned in this array it will be detached from the policy.

The 'iam_role' type manages IAM roles.

iam_role { 'devtesting':
  ensure => present,
  policy_document => '[
      {
        "Effect": "Allow",
        "Principal": {
          "Service": "ec2.amazonaws.com"
        },
        "Action": "sts:AssumeRole"
      }
    ]',
}

All parameters are read-only once created.

Specifies the basic state of the resource.

Valid values are: 'present', 'absent'.

name

The name of the IAM role

  "Statement": [
    {
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Principal": {
        "Service": "ec2.amazonaws.com"
      },
      "Action": "sts:AssumeRole"
    }
  ]
}
arn

The Amazon Resource Name for this IAM role.

Type: iam_user

The 'iam_user' type manages user accounts in IAM. Only the user's name is required as the title of the resource.

iam_user { 'alice':
  ensure => present,
}

iam_user { 'bob':
  ensure => present,
}

Type: kms

The 'kms' type manages KMS key lifecycle and their policies. The name of the resource is prefixed with 'alias/' to set the alias of the KMS key, since keys themselves don't have any notion of name, outside of an attached alias.

kms { 'somekey':
  ensure => present,
  policy => template('my/policy.json'),
}

The above resource may be viewable elsewhere as 'alias/somekey'.

policy

The JSON policy document to manage on the given KMS key.

Limitations

This module requires Ruby 1.9 or later and is only tested on Puppet versions 3.4 and later.

At the moment this module only supports a few of the resources in the AWS API. These resources also exist a bit outside the normal host level resources like 'package', 'file', 'user', etc.

We're really interested to see how people use these new resources, and what else you would like to be able to do with the module.

Note that this module also requires at least Ruby 1.9 and is only tested on Puppet versions from 3.4.
