NAME ^

Rex::Box::Amazon - Rex/Boxes Amazon Module

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a Rex/Boxes module to use Amazon EC2.

EXAMPLES ^

To use this module inside your Rexfile you can use the following commands.

 use Rex::Commands::Box;
 set box => "Amazon", {
   access_key => "your-access-key",
   private_access_key => "your-private-access-key",
   region => "ec2.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com",
   zone => "eu-west-1a",
   authkey => "default",
 };
  
 task "prepare_box", sub {
   box {
     my ($box) = @_;
       
     $box->name("mybox");
     $box->ami("ami-c1aaabb5");
     $box->type("m1.large"); 
        
     $box->security_group("default");
        
     $box->auth(
       user => "root",
       password => "box",
     );
        
     $box->setup("setup_task");
   };
 };

If you want to use a YAML file you can use the following template.

 type: Amazon
 amazon:
   access_key: your-access-key
   private_access_key: your-private-access-key
   region: ec2.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com
   zone: eu-west-1a
   auth_key: default
 vms:
   vmone:
     ami: ami-c1aaabb5
     type: m1.large
     security_group: default
     setup: setup_task

And then you can use it the following way in your Rexfile.

 use Rex::Commands::Box init_file => "file.yml";
   
 task "prepare_vms", sub {
   boxes "init";
 };
