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::Boxes;
 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";
 };
