Short Description
Automatically assign Elastic IPs to AWS EC2 instances.
Full Description

aws-ec2-assign-elastic-ip

Automatically assign Elastic IPs to AWS EC2 instances. This can be really nice in auto scaling groups were you need to communicate the external IP's to third party systems.

The script should be executed on the EC2 instance that should get assigned an Elastic IP. This is typically done as part of the instance boot process.

aws-ec2-assign-elastic-ip is idempotent and will not assign an new Elastic IP if the instance already has one.

Installation

aws-ec2-assign-elastic-ip is easiest to install via PyPI.

pip install aws-ec2-assign-elastic-ip

Configuration options

The script is configured using command line options. You can provide your AWS credentials directly on the command line, but the script also supports all boto credential config options and AWS instance profiles.

usage: aws-ec2-assign-elastic-ip [-h] [--version] [--region REGION]
                                 [--access-key ACCESS_KEY]
                                 [--secret-key SECRET_KEY] [--dry-run]
                                 [--valid-ips VALID_IPS]

Assign EC2 Elastic IP to the current instance

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --version             Print the Automated EBS Snapshots version and exit
  --region REGION       AWS region. Default: us-east-1
  --access-key ACCESS_KEY
                        AWS access key ID
  --secret-key SECRET_KEY
                        AWS secret access key ID
  --dry-run             Turn on dry run mode. No address will be assigned,
                        we will only print which we whould take
  --valid-ips VALID_IPS
                        A comma separated list of valid Elastic IPs.
                        You can use CIDR expressions to select ranges.
                        Valid examples:
                        - 58.0.0.0/8
                        - 123.213.0.0/16,58.0.0.0/8,195.234.023.0
                        - 195.234.234.23,195.234.234.24

The --valid-ips option require the public IPs in a comma separated sequence. E.g. 56.123.56.123,56.123.56.124,56.123.56.125.

Supported platforms

The aws-ec2-assign-elastic-ip should work fine on Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows. Please submit an issue if you have any issues with any of the platforms.

We currently support Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.X

Required IAM permissions

Community contribution much appreciated on this!

We have been using the following IAM policys to be able to list and associate Elastic IPs. This can probably be narrowed down abit. It allows EC2 read-only (from the IAM wizard) and ec2:AssociateAddress permissions:

{
  "Statement": [
    {
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Action": [
        "ec2:AssociateAddress",
        "ec2:Describe*"
      ],
      "Resource": "*"
    }
  ]
}
