(no release notes found)



Published: 5/27/2017 | Release notes

  • UPDATE: The build-packer-artifact script now accepts zero or more arguments of the form --var key=value so that key-val pairs can be passed as variables to a Packer build. (#36, #37)


Published: 5/19/2017 | Release notes

  • UPDATE: The git-add-commit-push command now does a git pull before it does a git push. In addition, the git push command now has configurable behavior for push.default and now defaults to simple instead of matching. (#32)


Published: 5/18/2017 | Release notes The build-docker-image script will now pass any args the script isn’t explicitly expecting (e.g. --docker-image-name) directly to the docker build command.


Published: 5/7/2017 | Release notes The build-docker-image and build-packer-artifact scripts now allow you to customize the key in the output properties file.



Published: 5/3/2017 | Release notes The RDS module now exposes a license_model parameter that you can use to set the license model for your DB. This is required for some of the DBs supported by RDS, such as SQL Server and Oracle.



Published: 5/30/2017 | Release notes Fix a bug in the alb-target-group-alarms where there was a typo in the comparison_operator of the tg_low_healthy_host_count alarm.


Published: 5/9/2017 | Release notes The scripts in this repo should now work on CentOS / RHEL.



Published: 5/24/2017 | Release notes


Published: 5/8/2017 | Release notes We've added a new module called fail2ban that you can use to install fail2ban on your servers and automatically have it ban malicious looking traffic (e.g. someone hammering SSH). The module includes integration with CloudWatch, so you can trigger CloudWatch alarms any time someone is banned.


Published: 5/7/2017 | Release notes The cross-account-iam-roles module can now create an auto deploy IAM role that allows a CI server (e.g. Jenkins) in another AWS account assume the role to do automated deployments in the current AWS account.


Published: 5/6/2017 | Release notes The iam-groups module now creates an IAM group that grants access to all external AWS accounts in var.iam_groups_for_cross_account_access.


Published: 5/3/2017 | Release notes The aws-cli-mfa script can now also assume an IAM role for you. This is particularly useful if you have multiple AWS accounts and want to authenticate to account A with MFA and then assume a role in account B. Now you can do it all with a one-liner!



Published: 5/27/2017 | Release notes

  • UPDATE: Updated module-server to use the non-deprecated property role instead of the deprecated roles as part of the aws_iam_instance_profile resource. (#11)
