Paws::OpsWorks::CreateStack - Arguments for method CreateStack on Paws::OpsWorks



This class represents the parameters used for calling the method CreateStack on the AWS OpsWorks service. Use the attributes of this class as arguments to method CreateStack.

You shouln’t make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the call to CreateStack.

As an example:

  $service_obj->CreateStack(Att1 => $value1, Att2 => $value2, ...);

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object.


    AgentVersion => Str

The default AWS OpsWorks agent version. You have the following options:
o Auto-update - Set this parameter to LATEST. AWS OpsWorks automatically installs new agent versions on the stack’s instances as soon as they are available.
o Fixed version - Set this parameter to your preferred agent version. To update the agent version, you must edit the stack configuration and specify a new version. AWS OpsWorks then automatically installs that version on the stack’s instances.
The default setting is LATEST. To specify an agent version, you must use the complete version number, not the abbreviated number shown on the console. For a list of available agent version numbers, call DescribeAgentVersions.

You can also specify an agent version when you create or update an instance, which overrides the stack’s default setting.

    Attributes => Paws::OpsWorks::StackAttributes

One or more user-defined key-value pairs to be added to the stack attributes.

    ChefConfiguration => Paws::OpsWorks::ChefConfiguration

A ChefConfiguration object that specifies whether to enable Berkshelf and the Berkshelf version on Chef 11.10 stacks. For more information, see Create a New Stack.

    ConfigurationManager => Paws::OpsWorks::StackConfigurationManager

The configuration manager. When you clone a stack we recommend that you use the configuration manager to specify the Chef version: 0.9, 11.4, or 11.10. The default value is currently 11.4.

    CustomCookbooksSource => Paws::OpsWorks::Source

    CustomJson => Str

A string that contains user-defined, custom JSON. It can be used to override the corresponding default stack configuration attribute values or to pass data to recipes. The string should be in the following escape characters such as ’"’:

"{\"key1\": \"value1\", \"key2\": \"value2\",...}"

For more information on custom JSON, see Use Custom JSON to Modify the Stack Configuration Attributes.

    DefaultAvailabilityZone => Str

The stack’s default Availability Zone, which must be in the specified region. For more information, see Regions and Endpoints. If you also specify a value for DefaultSubnetId, the subnet must be in the same zone. For more information, see the VpcId parameter description.

REQUIRED DefaultInstanceProfileArn => Str

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an IAM profile that is the default profile for all of the stack’s EC2 instances. For more information about IAM ARNs, see Using Identifiers.

    DefaultOs => Str

The stack’s default operating system, which is installed on every instance unless you specify a different operating system when you create the instance. You can specify one of the following.
o A supported Linux operating system: An Amazon Linux version, such as Amazon Linux 2015.03, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, or Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
o Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Base.
o A custom AMI: Custom. You specify the custom AMI you want to use when you create instances. For more information, see Using Custom AMIs.
The default option is the current Amazon Linux version. For more information on the supported operating systems, see AWS OpsWorks Operating Systems.

    DefaultRootDeviceType => Str

The default root device type. This value is the default for all instances in the stack, but you can override it when you create an instance. The default option is instance-store. For more information, see Storage for the Root Device.

    DefaultSshKeyName => Str

A default Amazon EC2 key pair name. The default value is none. If you specify a key pair name, AWS OpsWorks installs the public key on the instance and you can use the private key with an SSH client to log in to the instance. For more information, see Using SSH to Communicate with an Instance and Managing SSH Access. You can override this setting by specifying a different key pair, or no key pair, when you create an instance.

    DefaultSubnetId => Str

The stack’s default VPC subnet ID. This parameter is required if you specify a value for the VpcId parameter. All instances are launched into this subnet unless you specify otherwise when you create the instance. If you also specify a value for DefaultAvailabilityZone, the subnet must be in that zone. For information on default values and when this parameter is required, see the VpcId parameter description.

    HostnameTheme => Str

The stack’s host name theme, with spaces replaced by underscores. The theme is used to generate host names for the stack’s instances. By default, HostnameTheme is set to Layer_Dependent, which creates host names by appending integers to the layer’s short name. The other themes are:
o Baked_Goods
o Clouds
o Europe_Cities
o Fruits
o Greek_Deities
o Legendary_creatures_from_Japan
o Planets_and_Moons
o Roman_Deities
o Scottish_Islands
o US_Cities
o Wild_Cats
To obtain a generated host name, call GetHostNameSuggestion, which returns a host name based on the current theme.

REQUIRED Name => Str

The stack name.

REQUIRED Region => Str

The stack’s AWS region, such as us-east-1. For more information about Amazon regions, see Regions and Endpoints.

REQUIRED ServiceRoleArn => Str

The stack’s AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role, which allows AWS OpsWorks to work with AWS resources on your behalf. You must set this parameter to the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for an existing IAM role. For more information about IAM ARNs, see Using Identifiers.

    UseCustomCookbooks => Bool

Whether the stack uses custom cookbooks.

    UseOpsworksSecurityGroups => Bool

Whether to associate the AWS OpsWorks built-in security groups with the stack’s layers.

AWS OpsWorks provides a standard set of built-in security groups, one for each layer, which are associated with layers by default. With UseOpsworksSecurityGroups you can instead provide your own custom security groups. UseOpsworksSecurityGroups has the following settings:
o True - AWS OpsWorks automatically associates the appropriate built-in security group with each layer (default setting). You can associate additional security groups with a layer after you create it, but you cannot delete the built-in security group.
o False - AWS OpsWorks does not associate built-in security groups with layers. You must create appropriate EC2 security groups and associate a security group with each layer that you create. However, you can still manually associate a built-in security group with a layer on creation; custom security groups are required only for those layers that need custom settings.
For more information, see Create a New Stack.

    VpcId => Str

The ID of the VPC that the stack is to be launched into. The VPC must be in the stack’s region. All instances are launched into this VPC. You cannot change the ID later.
o If your account supports EC2-Classic, the default value is no VPC.
o If your account does not support EC2-Classic, the default value is the default VPC for the specified region.
If the VPC ID corresponds to a default VPC and you have specified either the DefaultAvailabilityZone or the DefaultSubnetId parameter only, AWS OpsWorks infers the value of the other parameter. If you specify neither parameter, AWS OpsWorks sets these parameters to the first valid Availability Zone for the specified region and the corresponding default VPC subnet ID, respectively.

If you specify a nondefault VPC ID, note the following:
o It must belong to a VPC in your account that is in the specified region.
o You must specify a value for DefaultSubnetId.
For more information on how to use AWS OpsWorks with a VPC, see Running a Stack in a VPC. For more information on default VPC and EC2-Classic, see Supported Platforms.
