This module installs (or upgrades, or un-installs) the AWS CLI v2. Redhat has dropped the AWS CLI v1 from its repositories, and AWS has packaged up v2 of the CLI with all dependencies included (but not packaged it as an RPM).
This module, by default, will place symlinks in
/usr/bin (rather than the
AWS default of
/usr/local/bin. This was chosen because the previous AWS CLI
command (provided by redhat) was installed into that location, and we do
not want to break any scripts that do not have
/usr/local/bin in their path
or may have hard-coded
This module requires the manual specification of the version of the CLI to
install. This was done to prevent having to download the
latest zip file
from AWS on every puppet run just to see if it has been updated. This module
will remove older versions after a successful upgrade to keep disk space down.
This module delivers a custom fact (
umd_awscliv2_version) which is used to
determine if an upgrade or clean install is needed (it will do nothing if
the requested version is already installed).
This module is not a complete replacement for a package management system, and
it is possible for it to fail to un-install older versions on upgrade or
absent. In particular, the currently installed version fact is based on
the current value of
$bin_path, and changing this parameter after an install
has happened will leave the previous installation abandoned.
