Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • python >= 2.6
  • boto

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
alias
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Indicates if this is an alias record.
alias_evaluate_target_health
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether or not to evaluate an alias target health. Useful for aliases to Elastic Load Balancers.
alias_hosted_zone_id
string
The hosted zone identifier.
aws_access_key
string
AWS access key. If not set then the value of the AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID, AWS_ACCESS_KEY or EC2_ACCESS_KEY environment variable is used.
If profile is set this parameter is ignored.
Passing the aws_access_key and profile options at the same time has been deprecated and the options will be made mutually exclusive after 2022-06-01.

aliases: ec2_access_key, access_key
aws_ca_bundle
path
The location of a CA Bundle to use when validating SSL certificates.
Only used for boto3 based modules.
Note: The CA Bundle is read 'module' side and may need to be explicitly copied from the controller if not run locally.
aws_config
dictionary
A dictionary to modify the botocore configuration.
Only the 'user_agent' key is used for boto modules. See http://boto.cloudhackers.com/en/latest/boto_config_tut.html#boto for more boto configuration.
aws_secret_key
string
AWS secret key. If not set then the value of the AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY, AWS_SECRET_KEY, or EC2_SECRET_KEY environment variable is used.
If profile is set this parameter is ignored.
Passing the aws_secret_key and profile options at the same time has been deprecated and the options will be made mutually exclusive after 2022-06-01.

aliases: ec2_secret_key, secret_key
debug_botocore_endpoint_logs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Use a botocore.endpoint logger to parse the unique (rather than total) "resource:action" API calls made during a task, outputing the set to the resource_actions key in the task results. Use the aws_resource_action callback to output to total list made during a playbook. The ANSIBLE_DEBUG_BOTOCORE_LOGS environment variable may also be used.
ec2_url
string
Url to use to connect to EC2 or your Eucalyptus cloud (by default the module will use EC2 endpoints). Ignored for modules where region is required. Must be specified for all other modules if region is not used. If not set then the value of the EC2_URL environment variable, if any, is used.

aliases: aws_endpoint_url, endpoint_url
failover
string
    Choices:
  • SECONDARY
  • PRIMARY
Failover resource record sets only. Whether this is the primary or secondary resource record set. Allowed values are PRIMARY and SECONDARY
health_check
string
Health check to associate with this record
hosted_zone_id
string
The Hosted Zone ID of the DNS zone to modify.
This is a required parameter, if parameter zone is not supplied.
identifier
string
Have to be specified for Weighted, latency-based and failover resource record sets only. An identifier that differentiates among multiple resource record sets that have the same combination of DNS name and type.
overwrite
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether an existing record should be overwritten on create if values do not match.
private_zone
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If set to yes, the private zone matching the requested name within the domain will be used if there are both public and private zones. The default is to use the public zone.
profile
string
Uses a boto profile. Only works with boto >= 2.24.0.
Using profile will override aws_access_key, aws_secret_key and security_token and support for passing them at the same time as profile has been deprecated.
aws_access_key, aws_secret_key and security_token will be made mutually exclusive with profile after 2022-06-01.

aliases: aws_profile
record
string / required
The full DNS record to create or delete.
region
string
Latency-based resource record sets only Among resource record sets that have the same combination of DNS name and type, a value that determines which region this should be associated with for the latency-based routing
retry_interval
integer
Default:
500
In the case that route53 is still servicing a prior request, this module will wait and try again after this many seconds. If you have many domain names, the default of 500 seconds may be too long.
security_token
string
AWS STS security token. If not set then the value of the AWS_SECURITY_TOKEN or EC2_SECURITY_TOKEN environment variable is used.
If profile is set this parameter is ignored.
Passing the security_token and profile options at the same time has been deprecated and the options will be made mutually exclusive after 2022-06-01.

aliases: aws_security_token, access_token
state
string / required
    Choices:
  • present
  • absent
  • get
  • create
  • delete
Specifies the state of the resource record. As of Ansible 2.4, the command option has been changed to state as default and the choices 'present' and 'absent' have been added, but command still works as well.

aliases: command
ttl

Default:
3600
The TTL, in second, to give the new record.
type
string / required
    Choices:
  • A
  • CNAME
  • MX
  • AAAA
  • TXT
  • PTR
  • SRV
  • SPF
  • CAA
  • NS
  • SOA
The type of DNS record to create.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
When set to "no", SSL certificates will not be validated for boto versions >= 2.6.0.
value
list / elements=string
The new value when creating a DNS record. YAML lists or multiple comma-spaced values are allowed for non-alias records.
When deleting a record all values for the record must be specified or Route53 will not delete it.
vpc_id
string
When used in conjunction with private_zone: true, this will only modify records in the private hosted zone attached to this VPC.
This allows you to have multiple private hosted zones, all with the same name, attached to different VPCs.
wait
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Wait until the changes have been replicated to all Amazon Route 53 DNS servers.
wait_timeout
integer
Default:
300
How long to wait for the changes to be replicated, in seconds.
weight
integer
Weighted resource record sets only. Among resource record sets that have the same combination of DNS name and type, a value that determines what portion of traffic for the current resource record set is routed to the associated location.
zone
string
The DNS zone to modify.
This is a required parameter, if parameter hosted_zone_id is not supplied.

Notes

Note

  • If parameters are not set within the module, the following environment variables can be used in decreasing order of precedence AWS_URL or EC2_URL, AWS_PROFILE or AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE, AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID or AWS_ACCESS_KEY or EC2_ACCESS_KEY, AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY or AWS_SECRET_KEY or EC2_SECRET_KEY, AWS_SECURITY_TOKEN or EC2_SECURITY_TOKEN, AWS_REGION or EC2_REGION, AWS_CA_BUNDLE
  • Ansible uses the boto configuration file (typically ~/.boto) if no credentials are provided. See https://boto.readthedocs.io/en/latest/boto_config_tut.html
  • AWS_REGION or EC2_REGION can be typically be used to specify the AWS region, when required, but this can also be configured in the boto config file
