AWS Compute Plugin

Overview

The AWS Compute Plugin integrates RightScale Self-Service with the basic functionality of the AWS Compute.

Requirements

  • A general understanding CAT development and definitions
    • Refer to the guide documentation for details SS Guides
  • Admin rights to a RightScale account with SelfService enabled
    • Admin is needed to set/retrieve the RightScale Credentials for the Compute API.
  • AWS Account credentials with the appropriate permissions to manage elastic load balancers
  • The following RightScale Credentials
    • AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
    • AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
  • The following packages are also required (See the Installation section for details):

Installation

  1. Be sure your RightScale account is SelfService enabled
  2. Follow the Getting Started section to create a Service Account and RightScale Credentials
  3. Navigate to the appropriate SelfService portal
  4. In the Design section, use the Upload CAT interface to complete the following:
    1. Upload each of packages listed in the Requirements Section
    2. Upload the aws_compute_plugin.rb file located in this repository

How to Use

The Compute Plugin has been packaged as plugin/rs_aws_compute. In order to use this plugin you must import this plugin into a CAT.

import "plugin/rs_aws_compute"

For more information on using packages, please refer to the RightScale online documenataion. Importing a Package

AWS Compute resources can now be created by specifying a resource declaration with the desired fields. See the Supported Actions section for a full list of supported actions. The resulting resrouce can be manipulated just like the native RightScale resources in RCL and CAT. See the Examples Section for more examples and complete CAT's.

Supported Resources

  • vpc
  • endpoint
  • route_table
  • nat_gateway
  • addresses
  • tags

Usage

#Creates an VPC
resource "my_vpc", type: "rs_aws_compute.vpc" do
  cidr_block "10.0.0.0/16"
  instance_tenancy "default"
end

resource "my_vpc_endpoint", type: "rs_aws_compute.endpoint" do
  vpc_id @my_vpc.vpcId
  service_name "com.amazonaws.us-east-1.s3"
end

resource "my_rs_vpc", type: "rs_cm.network" do
  name "my_rs_vpc"
  cidr_block "10.0.0.0/16"
  cloud_href "/api/clouds/1"
end

resource "my_rs_vpc_endpoint", type: "rs_aws_compute.endpoint" do
  vpc_id @my_rs_vpc.resource_uid
  service_name "com.amazonaws.us-east-1.s3"
end

Resources

vpc

Supported Fields

Field Name Required? Description
amazon_provided_ipv6_cidr_block No Requests an Amazon-provided IPv6 CIDR block with a /56 prefix length for the VPC. You cannot specify the range of IP addresses, or the size of the CIDR block.
cidr_block Yes The IPv4 network range for the VPC, in CIDR notation. For example, 10.0.0.0/16.
instance_tenancy No The tenancy options for instances launched into the VPC. For default, instances are launched with shared tenancy by default. You can launch instances with any tenancy into a shared tenancy VPC. For dedicated, instances are launched as dedicated tenancy instances by default. You can only launch instances with a tenancy of dedicated or host into a dedicated tenancy VPC.

Supported Fields

volume

Supported Fields

Field Name Required? Description
availability_zone Yes The Availability Zone in which to create the volume. Use DescribeAvailabilityZones to list the Availability Zones that are currently available to you.
encrypted No Specifies whether the volume should be encrypted. Encrypted Amazon EBS volumes may only be attached to instances that support Amazon EBS encryption. Volumes that are created from encrypted snapshots are automatically encrypted. There is no way to create an encrypted volume from an unencrypted snapshot or vice versa. If your AMI uses encrypted volumes, you can only launch it on supported instance types. For more information, see Amazon EBS Encryption in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
iops No The number of I/O operations per second (IOPS) to provision for the volume, with a maximum ratio of 50 IOPS/GiB. Range is 100 to 32000 IOPS for volumes in most regions. For exceptions, see Amazon EBS Volume Types in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
kms_key_id No An identifier for the AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) customer master key (CMK) to use when creating the encrypted volume. This parameter is only required if you want to use a non-default CMK; if this parameter is not specified, the default CMK for EBS is used. If a KmsKeyId is specified, the Encrypted flag must also be set.
size No The size of the volume, in GiBs.
snapshot_id No The snapshot from which to create the volume.
volume_type No The volume type. This can be gp2 for General Purpose SSD, io1 for Provisioned IOPS SSD, st1 for Throughput Optimized HDD, sc1 for Cold HDD, or standard for Magnetic volumes.

Implementation Notes

  • The AWS Compute Plugin makes no attempt to support non-AWS resources. (i.e. Allow the passing the RightScale or other resources as arguments to an VPC resource.)
  • The most common example might be to pass a RightScale instance to attach it to the VPC or similar. Support for this functionality will need to be implemented in the application CAT.

Full list of possible actions can be found on the AWS Compute API Documentation

Examples

Please review compute_plugin_test_cat.rb for a basic example implementation.
