almariah/aws — version 0.1.1 Feb 5th 2018

AWS module for Puppet


To install the module:

puppet module install almariah-aws

Also, you will need aws-sdk-s3 ruby gem dependency on the server where the s3file type is applied. You can use package type with gem provider to install it.


The module will searches the following locations for AWS credentials:

  • The shared credentials ini file at ~/.aws/credentials.
  • From an instance profile when running on EC2.

To fetch a file from S3 bucket to specific path:

s3file {'/tmp/file.txt':
  ensure => present,
  object => '/example/file.txt',
  bucket => "example-bucket",
  region => 'us-east-1'

If aws-sdk-s3 ruby gem not installed you can use:

s3file {'/tmp/file.txt':
  ensure  => present,
  object  => '/example/file.txt',
  bucket  => "example-bucket",
  region  => 'us-east-1'
  require => Package['aws-sdk-s3']

package {'aws-sdk-s3':
  ensure    => present,
  provider  => gem

If you set ensure to present and the file does not exist, it will be fetched from the bucket. If you set ensure to latest, every time you apply the type, the file on the bucket will be checked against the local copy in the specified path using MD5.
