Manage Launch Configurations

New in version 2014.7.0.

Create and destroy Launch Configurations. Be aware that this interacts with Amazon's services, and so may incur charges.

A limitation of this module is that you can not modify launch configurations once they have been created. If a launch configuration with the specified name exists, this module will always report success, even if the specified configuration doesn't match. This is due to a limitation in Amazon's launch configuration API, as it only allows launch configurations to be created and deleted.

Also note that a launch configuration that's in use by an autoscale group can not be deleted until the autoscale group is no longer using it. This may affect the way in which you want to order your states.

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

This module accepts explicit autoscale 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:

asg.keyid: GKTADJGHEIQSXMKKRBJ08H
asg.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

Credential information is shared with autoscale groups as launch configurations and autoscale groups are completely dependent on each other.

Ensure mylc exists:

    - name: mylc
    - image_id: ami-0b9c9f62
    - key_name: mykey
    - security_groups:
        - mygroup
    - instance_type: m1.small
    - instance_monitoring: true
    - block_device_mappings:
        - '/dev/sda1':
            size: 20
            volume_type: 'io1'
            iops: 220
            delete_on_termination: true

# Using a profile from pillars.
Ensure mylc exists:
  boto_lc.present:
    - name: mylc
    - image_id: ami-0b9c9f62
    - profile: myprofile

# Passing in a profile.
Ensure mylc exists:

    - profile:
        keyid: GKTADJGHEIQSXMKKRBJ08H

        region: us-east-1
salt.states.boto_lc.absent(name, region=None, key=None, keyid=None, profile=None)

Ensure the named launch configuration is deleted.

name
Name of the launch configuration.
region
The 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.boto_lc.present(name, image_id, key_name=None, vpc_id=None, vpc_name=None, security_groups=None, user_data=None, cloud_init=None, instance_type='m1.small', kernel_id=None, ramdisk_id=None, block_device_mappings=None, instance_monitoring=False, spot_price=None, instance_profile_name=None, ebs_optimized=False, associate_public_ip_address=None, region=None, key=None, keyid=None, profile=None)

Ensure the launch configuration exists.

name
Name of the launch configuration.
image_id
AMI to use for instances. AMI must exist or creation of the launch configuration will fail.
key_name
Name of the EC2 key pair to use for instances. Key must exist or creation of the launch configuration will fail.
vpc_id
The VPC id where the security groups are defined. Only necessary when using named security groups that exist outside of the default VPC. Mutually exclusive with vpc_name.
vpc_name
Name of the VPC where the security groups are defined. Only Necessary when using named security groups that exist outside of the default VPC. Mutually exclusive with vpc_id.
security_groups
List of Names or security group id’s of the security groups with which to associate the EC2 instances or VPC instances, respectively. Security groups must exist, or creation of the launch configuration will fail.
user_data
The user data available to launched EC2 instances.
cloud_init
A dict of cloud_init configuration. Currently supported values: scripts, cloud-config. Mutually exclusive with user_data.
instance_type
The instance type. ex: m1.small.
kernel_id
The kernel id for the instance.
ramdisk_id
The RAM disk ID for the instance.
block_device_mappings

A dict of block device mappings that contains a dict with volume_type, delete_on_termination, iops, size, encrypted, snapshot_id.

volume_type
Indicates what volume type to use. Valid values are standard, io1, gp2. Default is standard.
delete_on_termination
Indicates whether to delete the volume on instance termination (true) or not (false).
iops
For Provisioned IOPS (SSD) volumes only. The number of I/O operations per second (IOPS) to provision for the volume.
size
Desired volume size (in GiB).
encrypted
Indicates whether the volume should be encrypted. Encrypted EBS volumes must be attached to instances that support Amazon EBS encryption. Volumes that are created from encrypted snapshots are automatically encrypted. There is no way to create an encrypted volume from an unencrypted snapshot or an unencrypted volume from an encrypted snapshot.

Specifies whether the instance is optimized for EBS I/O (true) or not (false).

region
The 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.
