##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.

##Setup

###Requirements

  • Puppet 3.4 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.

    • If you're using open source Puppet, the SDK gem should be installed into the same Ruby used by Puppet. Install the gems with these commands:

      gem install aws-sdk-core

      gem install retries

  • If you're running Puppet Enterprise, install both the gems with this command:

    /opt/puppet/bin/gem install aws-sdk-core retries

  • If you're running Puppet Enterprise 2015.2.0 or newer, install both the gems with this command:

    `/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/gem install aws-sdk-core retries`
    

    This allows the gems to be used by the Puppet Enterprise Ruby.

  • If you're running Puppet Server, you need to make both gems available to JRuby with:

    `/opt/puppet/bin/puppetserver gem install aws-sdk-core retries`
    

    Once the gems are installed, restart Puppet Server.

  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 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.

  2. 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 which 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

##Getting Started with aws

The aws module allows you to manage AWS using the Puppet DSL. To stand up an instance with AWS, use the ec2_instance type. The following code sets up a very basic instance:

ec2_instance { 'instance-name':
  ensure        => present,
  region        => 'us-west-1',
  image_id      => 'ami-123456', # you need to select your own AMI
  instance_type => 't1.micro',
}

##Usage

###Creating resources

You can also set up more complex EC2 instances with a variety of AWS features, as well as load balancers and security groups.

Set up an instance:

ec2_instance { 'name-of-instance':
  ensure            => present,
  region            => 'us-east-1',
  availability_zone => 'us-east-1a',
  image_id          => 'ami-123456',
  instance_type     => 't1.micro',
  monitoring        => true,
  key_name          => 'name-of-existing-key',
  security_groups   => ['name-of-security-group'],
  user_data         => template('module/file-path.sh.erb'),
  tags              => {
    tag_name => 'value',
  },
}

Set up a security group:

ec2_securitygroup { 'name-of-group':
  ensure      => present,
  region      => 'us-east-1',
  description => 'a description of the group',
  ingress     => [{
    protocol  => 'tcp',
    port      => 80,
    cidr      => '0.0.0.0/0',
  },{
    security_group => 'other-security-group',
  }],
  tags        => {
    tag_name  => 'value',
  },
}

Set up 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',
  }],
  tags                 => {
    tag_name => 'value',
  },
}

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

Creating a stack

Let's create a simple stack, with a load balancer, instances, and security groups.

          |     +---------+                  |
          +----------------------------------+

We've supplied code for the creation of this stack in this module's tests directory. To run this code with Puppet apply, run:

puppet apply tests/create.pp --test

If you want to try this out from this directory without installing the module, run the following:

puppet apply tests/create.pp --modulepath ../ --test

To destroy the resources created by the above, run the following:

puppet apply tests/destroy.pp --test

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:

##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. If this is too limiting please let us know.
