salt.states.boto3_elasticache module

Manage Elasticache with boto3

New in version 2017.7.0.

Create, destroy and update Elasticache clusters. Be aware that this interacts with Amazon's services, and so may incur charges.

This module uses boto3 behind the scenes - as a result it inherits any limitations it boto3's implementation of the AWS API. It is also designed to as directly as possible leverage boto3's parameter naming and semantics. This allows one to use http://boto3.readthedocs.io/en/latest/reference/services/elasticache.html as an excellent source for details too involved to reiterate here.

Note: This module is designed to be transparent ("intentionally ignorant" is the phrase I used to describe it to my boss) to new AWS / boto options - since all AWS API params are passed directly through both the state and executions modules, any new args to existing functions which become available after this documentation is written should work immediately.

Brand new API calls, of course, would still require new functions to be added :)

This module accepts explicit elasticache credentials but can also utilize IAM roles assigned to the instance through Instance Profiles. Dynamic credentials are then automatically obtained from AWS API and no further configuration is necessary. More information is available here.

If IAM roles are not used you need to specify them either in a pillar file or in the minion's config file:

elasticache.keyid: GKTADJGHEIQSXMKKRBJ08H
elasticache.key: askdjghsdfjkghWupUjasdflkdfklgjsdfjajkghs

It's also possible to specify key, keyid and region via a profile, either passed in as a dict, or as a string to pull from pillars or minion config:

myprofile:
  keyid: GKTADJGHEIQSXMKKRBJ08H
  key: askdjghsdfjkghWupUjasdflkdfklgjsdfjajkghs
    region: us-east-1

salt.states.boto3_elasticache.cache_cluster_absent(name, wait=600, region=None, key=None, keyid=None, profile=None, **args)

Ensure a given cache cluster is deleted.

name
Name of the cache cluster.
wait
Integer describing how long, in seconds, to wait for confirmation from AWS that the resource is in the desired state. Zero meaning to return success or failure immediately of course. Note that waiting for the cluster to become available is generally the better course, as failure to do so will often lead to subsequent failures when managing dependent resources.
CacheClusterId
The node group (shard) identifier. Note: In general this parameter is not needed, as 'name' is used if it's not provided.
FinalSnapshotIdentifier
The user-supplied name of a final cache cluster snapshot. This is the unique name that identifies the snapshot. ElastiCache creates the snapshot, and then deletes the cache cluster immediately afterward.
region
Region to connect to.
key
Secret key to be used.
keyid
Access key to be used.
profile
A dict with region, key and keyid, or a pillar key (string) that contains a dict with region, key and keyid.
salt.states.boto3_elasticache.cache_cluster_present(name, wait=900, security_groups=None, region=None, key=None, keyid=None, profile=None, **args)

Ensure a given cache cluster exists.

name
Name of the cache cluster (cache cluster id).
wait
Integer describing how long, in seconds, to wait for confirmation from AWS that the resource is in the desired state. Zero meaning to return success or failure immediately of course. Note that waiting for the cluster to become available is generally the better course, as failure to do so will often lead to subsequent failures when managing dependent resources.
security_groups

One or more VPC security groups (names and/or IDs) associated with the cache cluster. Note: This is additive with any sec groups provided via the SecurityGroupIds parameter

below. Use this parameter ONLY when you are creating a cluster in a VPC.
CacheClusterId

The node group (shard) identifier. This parameter is stored as a lowercase string. Constraints:

A name must contain from 1 to 20 alphanumeric characters or hyphens. The first character must be a letter. A name cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.

Note: In general this parameter is not needed, as 'name' is used if it's not provided.

ReplicationGroupId

The ID of the replication group to which this cache cluster should belong. If this parameter is specified, the cache cluster is added to the specified replication group as a read replica; otherwise, the cache cluster is a standalone primary that is not part of any replication group. If the specified replication group is Multi-AZ enabled and the Availability Zone is not specified, the cache cluster is created in Availability Zones that provide the best spread of read replicas across Availability Zones. Notes: This parameter is ONLY valid if the Engine parameter is redis.

Due to current limitations on Redis (cluster mode disabled), this parameter

is not supported on Redis (cluster mode enabled) replication groups.

AZMode
Specifies whether the nodes in this Memcached cluster are created in a single Availability Zone or created across multiple Availability Zones in the cluster's region. If the AZMode and PreferredAvailabilityZones are not specified, ElastiCache assumes single-az mode. Note: This parameter is ONLY supported for Memcached cache clusters.
PreferredAvailabilityZone
The EC2 Availability Zone in which the cache cluster is created. All nodes belonging to this Memcached cache cluster are placed in the preferred Availability Zone. If you want to create your nodes across multiple Availability Zones, use PreferredAvailabilityZones. Default: System chosen Availability Zone.
PreferredAvailabilityZones

A list of the Availability Zones in which cache nodes are created. The order of the zones in the list is not important. The number of Availability Zones listed must equal the value of NumCacheNodes. If you want all the nodes in the same Availability Zone, use PreferredAvailabilityZone instead, or repeat the Availability Zone multiple times in the list. Note: This option is ONLY supported on Memcached. Note: If you are creating your cache cluster in an Amazon VPC (recommended) you

can only locate nodes in Availability Zones that are associated with the subnets in the selected subnet group.

Default: System chosen Availability Zones.

NumCacheNodes

The initial (integer) number of cache nodes that the cache cluster has. Notes: For clusters running Redis, this value must be 1.

For clusters running Memcached, this value must be between 1 and 20.
CacheNodeType

The compute and memory capacity of the nodes in the node group (shard). Valid node types (and pricing for them) are exhaustively described at https://aws.amazon.com/elasticache/pricing/ Notes: All T2 instances must be created in a VPC

Redis backup/restore is not supported for Redis (cluster mode disabled) T1 and T2 instances. Backup/restore is supported on Redis (cluster mode enabled) T2 instances. Redis Append-only files (AOF) functionality is not supported for T1 or T2 instances.
Engine
The name of the cache engine to be used for this cache cluster. Valid values for this parameter are: memcached | redis
EngineVersion

The version number of the cache engine to be used for this cache cluster. To view the supported cache engine versions, use the DescribeCacheEngineVersions operation. Note: You can upgrade to a newer engine version but you cannot downgrade to an

earlier engine version. If you want to use an earlier engine version, you must delete the existing cache cluster or replication group and create it anew with the earlier engine version.
CacheParameterGroupName
The name of the parameter group to associate with this cache cluster. If this argument is omitted, the default parameter group for the specified engine is used. You cannot use any parameter group which has cluster-enabled='yes' when creating a cluster.
CacheSubnetGroupName

The name of the Cache Subnet Group to be used for the cache cluster. Use this parameter ONLY when you are creating a cache cluster within a VPC.

Note: If you're going to launch your cluster in an Amazon VPC, you need to create a subnet group before you start creating a cluster.

CacheSecurityGroupNames
A list of Cache Security Group names to associate with this cache cluster. Use this parameter ONLY when you are creating a cache cluster outside of a VPC.
SecurityGroupIds
One or more VPC security groups associated with the cache cluster. Use this parameter ONLY when you are creating a cache cluster within a VPC.
Tags
A list of tags to be added to this resource. Note that due to shortcomings in the AWS API for Elasticache, these can only be set during resource creation - later modification is not (currently) supported.
SnapshotArns
A single-element string list containing an Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that uniquely identifies a Redis RDB snapshot file stored in Amazon S3. The snapshot file is used to populate the node group (shard). The Amazon S3 object name in the ARN cannot contain any commas. Note: This parameter is ONLY valid if the Engine parameter is redis.
SnapshotName
The name of a Redis snapshot from which to restore data into the new node group (shard). The snapshot status changes to restoring while the new node group (shard) is being created. Note: This parameter is ONLY valid if the Engine parameter is redis.
PreferredMaintenanceWindow
Specifies the weekly time range during which maintenance on the cache cluster is permitted. It is specified as a range in the format ddd:hh24:mi-ddd:hh24:mi (24H Clock UTC). The minimum maintenance window is a 60 minute period. Valid values for ddd are: sun, mon, tue, wed, thu, fri, sat Example: sun:23:00-mon:01:30
Port
The port number on which each of the cache nodes accepts connections. Default: 6379
NotificationTopicArn
The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) topic to which notifications are sent. Note: The Amazon SNS topic owner must be the same as the cache cluster owner.
AutoMinorVersionUpgrade
This (boolean) parameter is currently disabled.
SnapshotRetentionLimit
The number of days for which ElastiCache retains automatic snapshots before deleting them. Note: This parameter is ONLY valid if the Engine parameter is redis. Default: 0 (i.e., automatic backups are disabled for this cache cluster).
SnapshotWindow
The daily time range (in UTC) during which ElastiCache begins taking a daily snapshot of your node group (shard). If you do not specify this parameter, ElastiCache automatically chooses an appropriate time range. Note: This parameter is ONLY valid if the Engine parameter is redis. Example: 05:00-09:00
AuthToken

The password used to access a password protected server. Password constraints:

Must be only printable ASCII characters. Must be at least 16 characters and no more than 128 characters in length. Cannot contain any of the following characters: '/', '"', or "@".
CacheNodeIdsToRemove
A list of cache node IDs to be removed. A node ID is a numeric identifier (0001, 0002, etc.). This parameter is only valid when NumCacheNodes is less than the existing number of cache nodes. The number of cache node IDs supplied in this parameter must match the difference between the existing number of cache nodes in the cluster or pending cache nodes, whichever is greater, and the value of NumCacheNodes in the request.
NewAvailabilityZones
The list of Availability Zones where the new Memcached cache nodes are created. This parameter is only valid when NumCacheNodes in the request is greater than the sum of the number of active cache nodes and the number of cache nodes pending creation (which may be zero). The number of Availability Zones supplied in this list must match the cache nodes being added in this request. Note: This option is only supported on Memcached clusters.

The identifier of the cache cluster that serves as the primary for this replication group. This cache cluster must already exist and have a status of available. This parameter is not required if NumCacheClusters, NumNodeGroups, or ReplicasPerNodeGroup is specified.
AutomaticFailoverEnabled

Specifies whether a read-only replica is automatically promoted to read/write primary if the existing primary fails. If true, Multi-AZ is enabled for this replication group. If false, Multi-AZ is disabled for this replication group. Notes: AutomaticFailoverEnabled must be enabled for Redis (cluster mode enabled)

replication groups. ElastiCache Multi-AZ replication groups is not supported on:

Redis versions earlier than 2.8.6. Redis (cluster mode disabled): T1 and T2 node types. Redis (cluster mode enabled): T2 node types.
