Reference

Required

Configure one or more self-managed Auto Scaling Groups (ASGs) to manage the EC2 instances in this cluster. Set to empty object ({}) if you do not wish to configure self-managed ASGs.

Any types represent complex values of variable type. For details, please consult `variables.tf` in the source repo.
Details

Each configuration must be keyed by a unique string that will be used as a suffix for the ASG name. The values
support the following attributes:

REQUIRED (must be provided for every entry):
- subnet_ids list(string) : A list of the subnets into which the EKS Cluster's worker nodes will be launched.
These should usually be all private subnets and include one in each AWS Availability
Zone. NOTE: If using a cluster autoscaler, each ASG may only belong to a single
availability zone.

OPTIONAL (defaults to value of corresponding module input):
- min_size number : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_min_size) The minimum number of
EC2 Instances representing workers launchable for this EKS Cluster.
Useful for auto-scaling limits.
- max_size number : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_max_size) The maximum number of
EC2 Instances representing workers that must be running for this EKS
Cluster. We recommend making this at least twice the min_size, even if
you don't plan on scaling the cluster up and down, as the extra capacity
will be used to deploy updates to the cluster.
- asg_instance_type string : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_instance_type) The type of
instances to use for the ASG (e.g., t2.medium).
- max_pods_allowed number : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_max_pods_allowed) The
maximum number of Pods allowed to be scheduled on the node. When null,
the max will be automatically calculated based on the availability of
total IP addresses to the instance type.
- asg_instance_root_volume_size number : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_instance_root_volume_size) The root volume size of
instances to use for the ASG in GB (e.g., 40).
- asg_instance_root_volume_type string : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_instance_root_volume_type) The root volume type of
instances to use for the ASG (e.g., "standard").
- asg_instance_root_volume_iops number : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_instance_root_volume_iops) The root volume iops of
instances to use for the ASG (e.g., 200).
- asg_instance_root_volume_throughput number : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_instance_root_volume_throughput) The root volume throughput in MiBPS of
instances to use for the ASG (e.g., 125).
- asg_instance_root_volume_encryption bool : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_instance_root_volume_encryption)
Whether or not to enable root volume encryption for instances of the ASG.
- tags list(object[Tag]) : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_tags) Custom tags to apply to the
EC2 Instances in this ASG. Refer to structure definition below for the
object type of each entry in the list.
- enable_detailed_monitoring bool : (Defaults to value from
var.asg_default_enable_detailed_monitoring) Whether to enable
detailed monitoring on the EC2 instances that comprise the ASG.
- use_multi_instances_policy bool : (Defaults to value from var.asg_default_use_multi_instances_policy)

number of EC2 Instances representing workers launchable for this EKS
Cluster. Useful for auto-scaling limits.
- max_size number : (Defaults to value from var.node_group_default_max_size) The maximum
number of EC2 Instances representing workers that must be running for

Labels to apply to the EC2 Instances in this node group. This should be a
key value pair, where the keys are label keys and values are the label
values. Merged with var.common_labels.
- taints list(map(string)) : (Defaults to value from var.node_group_default_taints) Custom Kubernetes
taint to apply to the EC2 Instances in this node group. See below for

null

Tags assigned to a node group are mirrored to the underlaying autoscaling group by default. If you want to disable this behaviour, set this flag to false. Note that this assumes that there is a one-to-one mappping between ASGs and Node Groups. If there is more than one ASG mapped to the Node Group, then this will only apply the tags on the first one. Due to a limitation in Terraform for_each where it can not depend on dynamic data, it is currently not possible in the module to map the tags to all ASGs. If you wish to apply the tags to all underlying ASGs, then it is recommended to call the aws_autoscaling_group_tag resource in a separate terraform state file outside of this module, or use a two-stage apply process.

true
node_group_nameslist(string)optional

If you are using ssh-grunt, this is the name of the IAM group from which users will be allowed to SSH to the EKS workers with sudo permissions. To omit this variable, set it to an empty string (do NOT use null, or Terraform will complain).

"ssh-grunt-sudo-users"
tenancystringoptional

The tenancy of the servers in the self-managed worker ASG. Must be one of: default, dedicated, or host.

"default"

If this variable is set to true, then use an exec-based plugin to authenticate and fetch tokens for EKS. This is useful because EKS clusters use short-lived authentication tokens that can expire in the middle of an 'apply' or 'destroy', and since the native Kubernetes provider in Terraform doesn't have a way to fetch up-to-date tokens, we recommend using an exec-based provider as a workaround. Use the use_kubergrunt_to_fetch_token input variable to control whether kubergrunt or aws is used to fetch tokens.

true
use_imdsv1booloptional

Set this variable to true to enable the use of Instance Metadata Service Version 1 in this module's aws_launch_template. Note that while IMDsv2 is preferred due to its special security hardening, we allow this in order to support the use case of AMIs built outside of these modules that depend on IMDSv1.

false

EKS clusters use short-lived authentication tokens that can expire in the middle of an 'apply' or 'destroy'. To avoid this issue, we use an exec-based plugin to fetch an up-to-date token. If this variable is set to true, we'll use kubergrunt to fetch the token (in which case, kubergrunt must be installed and on PATH); if this variable is set to false, we'll use the aws CLI to fetch the token (in which case, aws must be installed and on PATH). Note this functionality is only enabled if use_exec_plugin_for_auth is set to true.

true

When true, all IAM policies will be managed as dedicated policies rather than inline policies attached to the IAM roles. Dedicated managed policies are friendlier to automated policy checkers, which may scan a single resource for findings. As such, it is important to avoid inline policies when targeting compliance with various security standards.

true

When true, assumes prefix delegation mode is in use for the AWS VPC CNI component of the EKS cluster when computing max pods allowed on the node. In prefix delegation mode, each ENI will be allocated 16 IP addresses (/28) instead of 1, allowing you to pack more Pods per node.

false

Name of the IAM role to Kubernetes RBAC group mapping ConfigMap. Only used if aws_auth_merger_namespace is not null.

"eks-cluster-worker-iam-mapping"
worker_name_prefixstringoptional

Prefix EKS worker resource names with this string. When you have multiple worker groups for the cluster, you can use this to namespace the resources. Defaults to empty string so that resource names are not excessively long by default.
