salt.states.boto_cloudwatch_event module

Manage CloudTrail Objects

New in version 2016.11.0.

Create and destroy CloudWatch event rules. Be aware that this interacts with Amazon's services, and so may incur charges.

This module uses boto3, which can be installed via package, or pip.

This module accepts explicit vpc 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 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:

cloudwatch_event.keyid: GKTADJGHEIQSXMKKRBJ08H
cloudwatch_event.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
Ensure event rule exists:
    boto_cloudwatch_event.present:
        - Name: mytrail
        - ScheduleExpression: 'rate(120 minutes)'
        - State: 'DISABLED'
        - Targets:
          - Id: "target1"
            Arn: "arn:aws:lambda:us-west-1:124456715622:function:my_function"
            Input: '{"arbitrary": "json"}'
        - region: us-east-1
        - keyid: GKTADJGHEIQSXMKKRBJ08H
        - key: askdjghsdfjkghWupUjasdflkdfklgjsdfjajkghs
