Test-kitchen/ec2 and user_data


#1

Hi guys,

Anyone has had any luck setting user_data on your .kitchen.yml file when
converging a node? I have tried both specifying a file with the command or
putting the actual bash commands, but no luck thus far. Any suggestions?

Here is a snapshot of the relevant .kitchen.yml file


driver:
name: ec2
aws_ssh_key_id: [key_id]
ssh_key: "[path_to_ssh_key]"
aws_access_key_id: <%= ENV[‘AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID’] %>
aws_secret_access_key: <%= ENV[‘AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY’] %>
region: us-east-1
availability_zone: us-east-1b
security_group_ids: [“sg-9999999”]
subnet_id: "subnet-aaaaaaa"
flavor_id: t2.small
iam_profile_name: "[profile-name]"
user_data: "…/…/my_user_data_file"
associate_public_ip: true
