Description

This module provides a resource type to manage parameters in the AWS SSM Parameter Store.

Setup

Setup Requirements

The type and provider requires the AWS SDK is installed into the vendored Ruby that comes with Puppet. This module does not install the package for you - if it is not installed, it can be managed with a package resource:

package { 'aws-sdk':
  ensure   => present,
  provider => puppet_gem,
}

Beginning with aws_ssm_param

When creating a parameter, you have to provide name, value and type at a minimum (where name is the fully qualified name). For example:

aws_ssm_param { '/dev/myserver/myapp/foo':
  type  => 'String',
  value => 'bar',
}

Usage

When creating a parameter, you can optionally provide some other attributes, such as description, key_id and allowed_pattern (for more information, see here). However, currently these attributes will be enforced only if the value of the parameter changes.

By default, overwrite is set to false so if the parameter already exists the value will not be overridden. To have Puppet enforce this, simply set the override attribute to true.

Limitations

This has only been tested on Ubuntu.

Development
