Published: 6/21/2022 | Modules affected: asg-instance-refresh, asg-rolling-deploy, server-group | Release notes

  • Unlock AWS provider v4. Require minimum 3.75.1. This update includes a few tests that make sure upgrading to this module from the last release is easy. However, you may need to bump your AWS provider version. See the migration guide notes below for more.


Published: 6/13/2022 | Modules affected: asg-rolling-deploy | Release notes

  • Added max_instance_lifetime var to asg-rolling-deploy module


Published: 6/6/2022 | Modules affected: asg-rolling-deploy, server-group | Release notes

  • Updated examples to be compatible with terraform-provider-aws v4.
  • Updated tests to include additional cases and OSes.
  • Support for python2 has been dropped. All modules that depend on python now require python 3, and calls out to python3 directly. Most users should not be impacted by this change, as almost all operating systems ship with python3 now.



Published: 6/27/2022 | Modules affected: ecs-deploy-runner, infrastructure-deployer | Release notes

  • Updated the Fargate platform version to default to 1.4.0 instead of 1.3.0.
  • Fixed bug where very short ECS tasks oftentimes end up with no streaming logs despite the logs showing up in CloudWatch. We have identified this to be a race condition between retrieving log events and the first logs to show up from the ECS task. This is addressed by adding a short delay between the ECS task starting, and the infrastructure-deployer CLI reading log events.


Published: 6/9/2022 | Modules affected: ecs-deploy-runner-standard-configuration, infrastructure-deploy-script | Release notes

  • Added the ability to ecs-deploy-runner to init and update submodules in the infra live repo.


Published: 6/6/2022 | Modules affected: jenkins-server | Release notes

  • Updated dependency terraform-aws-asg from v0.13.0 to v0.18.0 in jenkins-server module.


Published: 6/6/2022 | Modules affected: test/upgrades | Release notes

  • Updated upgrade testing framework to run apply -refresh-only to avoid terraform output changes causing resource counting to fail.


Published: 6/3/2022 | Modules affected: test/upgrades | Release notes

  • Made the repo name configurable in upgrade testing framework.


Published: 6/1/2022 | Modules affected: ecs-deploy-runner, infrastructure-deploy-script | Release notes

  • Added a new go package for upgrade tests.
  • Added the ability to install multiple terraform versions into the deploy-runner docker container by using the build arg additional_terraform_versions. Example: --build-arg additional_terraform_versions=0.12.31,0.15.1
  • Fixed bug where SSH key without trailing \n was being rejected by ssh-add when attempting to load into the deploy runner.



Published: 6/30/2022 | Modules affected: steampipe-runner, ecs-deploy-runner-with-steampipe-runner | Release notes

  • steampipe-runner [BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE]
  • ecs-deploy-runner-with-steampipe-runner [BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE]

Updated the following dependencies:

  • terraform-aws-ci: v0.41.0 => v0.50.0
  • terraform-aws-service-catalog: v0.85.0 => v0.92.0
  • terraform-aws-security: v0.62.3 => v0.65.6
  • steampipe: v0.13.6 => v0.15.0

This release updates the default version of steampipe that is installed into the docker container. If you wish to keep the old version of steampipe for stability reasons, you can pass in the arg --build-arg steampipe_version=v0.13.6 when building the docker container.

This release is functionally equivalent and backward compatible with the previous release, but we are marking this as backward incompatible out of caution due to the platform version change in ECS for the ECS Deploy Runner. We recommend rebuilding containers and updating theinfrastructure-deployer tool to terraform-aws-ci version v0.50.0 when rolling out the update.



Published: 6/30/2022 | Modules affected: landingzone/account-baseline-root, landingzone/account-baseline-security, landingzone/account-baseline-app, observability/cloudtrail | Release notes

  • Fixed bug where CloudWatch could not access the SNS Topic for the log metric filters when they are encrypted with KMS.


Published: 6/30/2022 | Modules affected: landingzone/account-baseline-app, landingzone/account-baseline-security, security/aws-securityhub | Release notes

  • Added a new option enable_cis_check (security_hub_enable_cis_check in landingzone modules) which can be used to disable the CIS standards check in AWS SecurityHub. These are enabled by default to preserve current behavior. DIsabling them is useful if you are using another tool to run the checks, such as Steampipe.


Published: 6/28/2022 | Modules affected: security/cleanup-expired-certs, networking/vpc-app-network-acls, networking/vpc-mgmt-network-acls, observability/cloudwatch-logs-metric-filters | Release notes

  • Updated dependencies:
    • terraform-aws-lambda: v0.16.0 => v0.19.3
    • terraform-aws-vpc: v0.21.1 => v0.22.1
    • terraform-aws-monitoring: v0.33.3 => v0.34.1
    • terraform-aws-security: v0.64.1 => v0.65.6
    • terraform-aws-service-catalog: v0.86.1 => v0.90.7
  • Updated examples and test dependencies:
    • terraform-aws-utilities: v0.6.0 => v0.9.0
    • terraform: 1.1.4 => 1.2.3
    • terragrunt: v0.36.0 => v0.38.1
    • Various go dependencies.

NOTE: Many dependencies were updated across backward incompatible versions, but all the backward incompatibilities have been confirmed not to affect the modules in this repo.



Published: 6/17/2022 | Modules affected: backup-vault, backup-plan, rds | Release notes

  • Updated backup-plan to attach S3 backup and restore policies to the Vault.
  • Added the ability to specify custom access policies for the Backup Vault. This is useful for configuring cross account access.



Published: 6/13/2022 | Modules affected: ecs-service | Release notes

  • Added variable listener_rule_ids to make sure that external listeners are created before ECS service



Published: 6/27/2022 | Modules affected: eks-cluster-workers, eks-cloudwatch-agent | Release notes

  • Added the ability to restrict IMDS on self managed workers. Additionally, the launch template is now updated to restrict the service to require tokens by default (IMDS v2).


Published: 6/17/2022 | Modules affected: eks-cluster-control-plane | Release notes

  • Added better support for Windows to the local-exec calls in the eks-cluster-control-plane module.


Published: 6/7/2022 | Modules affected: eks-cluster-managed-workers | Release notes

  • Added the ability to mirror the tags applied to Managed Node Groups to the underlying ASGs. Note that this feature depends on an assumption that there is only one ASG per MNG to work around an issue with Terraform for_each and count. If your environment has more than one ASG mapped to the MNG, then it is recommended to call the aws_autoscaling_group_tag resource outside the eks-cluster-managed-workers module.



Published: 6/16/2022 | Modules affected: run-lambda-entrypoint | Release notes

  • Updated run-lambda-entrypoint to support wrapping the entrypoint call in the Runtime Interface Emulator for local testing. Note that you only need to use this feature if you are using a distroless container image for the Lambda function.

Published: 6/20/2022 | Modules affected: alarms, logs, metrics | Release notes

  • Small fix for TestRdsAlarms test.
  • Unlock AWS provider v4. Require minimum 3.75.1. This update includes a few tests that make sure upgrading to this module from the last release is easy. However, you may need to bump your AWS provider version. See the migration guide notes below for more.


Published: 6/14/2022 | Modules affected: logs/load-balancer-access-logs | Release notes

  • Updated dependency terraform-aws-security from v0.65.2 to v0.65.5.
  • Exposed the ability to hook to the access logs S3 Bucket being fully configured in the logs/load-balancer-access-logs module. This is useful for ensuring the S3 Bucket configuration is set up to support linking to AWS ELB.

Published: 6/8/2022 | Modules affected: private-s3-bucket | Release notes

  • Added a new output to private-s3-bucket that can be used to chain resources to the bucket being fully configured without using module depends_on (which has quirks that can lead to perpetual diffs). The primary use case would be when you are configuring an object upload in the same module that is creating the bucket, you would want to make sure all the configuration options are set on the bucket before uploading the first object.


Published: 6/6/2022 | Modules affected: aws-config, cloudtrail, cross-account-iam-roles, private-s3-bucket | Release notes

  • Added . to all permissions boundary variable descriptions
  • Addressed deprecation warning for object_lock_configuration on private s3 bucket.
