salt.modules.cloud

Salt-specific interface for calling Salt Cloud directly

salt.modules.cloud.action(fun=None, cloudmap=None, names=None, provider=None, instance=None, **kwargs)

Execute a single action on the given provider/instance

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.action start instance=myinstance
salt minionname cloud.action stop instance=myinstance
salt minionname cloud.action show_image provider=my-ec2-config image=ami-1624987f
salt.modules.cloud.create(provider, names, opts=None, **kwargs)

Create an instance using Salt Cloud

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.create my-ec2-config myinstance image=ami-1624987f size='t1.micro' ssh_username=ec2-user securitygroup=default delvol_on_destroy=True
salt.modules.cloud.destroy(names)

Destroy the named VM(s)

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.destroy myinstance
salt.modules.cloud.full_query(query_type='list_nodes_full')

List all available cloud provider data

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.full_query
salt.modules.cloud.get_instance(name, provider=None)

Return details on an instance.

Similar to the cloud action show_instance but returns only the instance details.

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.get_instance myinstance

SLS Example:

{{ salt['cloud.get_instance']('myinstance')['mac_address'] }}
salt.modules.cloud.has_instance(name, provider=None)

Return true if the instance is found on a provider

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.has_instance myinstance
salt.modules.cloud.list_images(provider='all')

List cloud provider images for the given providers

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.list_images my-gce-config
salt.modules.cloud.list_locations(provider='all')

List cloud provider locations for the given providers

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.list_locations my-gce-config
salt.modules.cloud.list_sizes(provider='all')

List cloud provider sizes for the given providers

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.list_sizes my-gce-config
salt.modules.cloud.map_run(path=None, **kwargs)

Execute a salt cloud map file

CLI Examples:

salt minionname cloud.map_run /path/to/cloud.map
salt minionname cloud.map_run map_data='<actual map data>'
salt.modules.cloud.network_create(provider, names, **kwargs)

Create private network

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.network_create my-nova names=['salt'] cidr='192.168.100.0/24'
salt.modules.cloud.network_list(provider)

List private networks

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.network_list my-nova
salt.modules.cloud.profile(profile, names, vm_overrides=None, opts=None, **kwargs)

Spin up an instance using Salt Cloud

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.profile my-gce-config myinstance
salt.modules.cloud.query(query_type='list_nodes')

List cloud provider data for all providers

CLI Examples:

salt minionname cloud.query
salt minionname cloud.query list_nodes_full
salt minionname cloud.query list_nodes_select
salt.modules.cloud.select_query(query_type='list_nodes_select')

List selected nodes

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.select_query
salt.modules.cloud.virtual_interface_create(provider, names, **kwargs)

Attach private interfaces to a server

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.virtual_interface_create my-nova names=['salt-master'] net_name='salt'
salt.modules.cloud.virtual_interface_list(provider, names, **kwargs)

List virtual interfaces on a server

CLI Example:

salt minionname cloud.virtual_interface_list my-nova names=['salt-master']
salt.modules.cloud.volume_attach(provider, names, **kwargs)
