Hi @maarten & @Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) - sorry, I joined last week, but only now got time to read through things. I’m co-founder of two new fin-tech startups in Cape Town South Africa, and we’ve been putting a lot of effort into “doing things right”. Heaps of Terraform, Docker and Serverless stuff (soon to move more towards k8s) in various guises. I kept on bumping into the SweetOps stuff everywhere I go, so decided to look at it in earnest. I feel a little like the local woodworker who became better than anybody else in the village, and then visits the master woodworkers in Japan, only to realise how little he really knew about woodworking. I’m now seriously considering scrapping much of what we did and embracing the SweetOps way. Maybe with Atlantis thrown in. Planning on working through the cold start in an isolated environment within the next week or two.

Has anyone seen Fargate errors a la: STOPPED (CannotStartContainerError: API error (500): failed)

lvh avatar

I have no idea what’s up with that; I gave the task role AdministratorAccess and put it in a completely permissive SG just in case, no dice

lvh avatar

logs are empty

lvh avatar

happens repeatedly

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

I haven’t seen that particular error. Fwiw, we’re running #atlantis in ECS/Fargate using AdministratorAccess and using this tool: https://github.com/jpignata/fargate

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Usually, when I don’t see any logs it’s because the task doesn’t even attempt to start which is b/c I use the wrong image tag or don’t have permissions to pull the image

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

@maarten might have some other ideas

maarten avatar
maarten

Outbound sg rules should be permissive

maarten avatar

Otherwise check your routing

maarten avatar

And if you think ECR might be the problem, try nginx:latest as image to rule that out.

Another thing to make sure is that the cloudwatch log group exists and that the task definition has those properties setup correctly including the correct region. Can’t think of anything else.

Is there a way to get an ECS task to assume a foreign role (as in from a different account) as the task role? I think the answer is no because the way you make that work is you add a trust policy that allows ecs-tasks.amazonaws.com to assume the role, but i don’t own the role

maarten avatar
maarten

@lvh you can give the role the permission to assume the role of a different account

maarten avatar
maarten

Trust policies on services only work within the same account afaik.

maarten avatar
maarten

What are you trying to achieve ?

lvh avatar

I want to run an ECS container in my AWS account with permissions to view infra; I want to view said infra from my account

lvh avatar

ideally I would do that with the application itself being entirely role-oblivious

maarten avatar
maarten

I don’t think I follow, what do you mean by infra ?

lvh avatar

some infrastructure; could be anything

lvh avatar

imagine I’m deploying something with terraform in a foreign account

lvh avatar

(actually what I’m doing is auditing the foreign account, but who cares – there’s a foreign role that has some permissions that software I control needs; I would like to run said software on ECS in my account)

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Yes, that should be possible

lvh avatar

but ECS already has a concept of giving some permissions to a task: it’s just that it expects that role to be in the same account

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Datadog for example does this

lvh avatar

when you say should be possible you mean possible by explicitly assuming a role inside the application? or by assigning it to ECS directly

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

And it’s a pattern they recommend with Atlantis to assume role into foreign accounts

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

They application needs to support it

what Add simple assume-role utility why For CI/CD contexts with codefresh, where aws-vault is not suitable references https://github.com/remind101/assume-role/

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

This will facilitate that programmatically I such a way you get a shell that has access to that env.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

But if your are writing something from the ground up, you should just incorporate it into your app

lvh avatar

ah neat, I’ve been using aws-vault but obvs “keychain” makes less sense in a container

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Right, this is like AWS vault but for services rather than humans

lvh avatar

well all I really need is something that takes the output of aws sts assume-role and sets some env vars which sounds pretty doable

maarten avatar
maarten

it’s also easy to script with just aws sts

lvh avatar

jynx

lvh avatar

that tool suggests I configure ~/.aws/config – one would hope it automagically works with the metadata service or env vars too because it just uses the aws sdk

lvh avatar

yeah I’ll probably just script this manually

lvh avatar

well; thanks

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

It just uses go sdk for aws

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Which works with metadata api

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

AWS config is probably for local dev (which aws-vault is better suited for). Shouldn’t be required. I was looking to do exactly what you are doing which is what led me down this path

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

AWS cli for STS falls short of what I would want from it.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

It’s like curl for AWS api. Great that it returns json, but if I have to “program” to use it, I might as well use the library for my language

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

That’s why I like the cli approach that provides me an operational environment. I don’t know why aws cli for sts still doesn’t support that exec capability.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

I say this after having used it before I found the simple cli tools

Atlantis Team Joins HashiCorp

Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)
Atlantis is an open source tool designed to help teams collaborate on Terraform. It provides a workflow for reviewing and executing Terraform directly from GitHub pull requests.

Anubhav Mishra and Luke Kysow are the engineers behind Atlantis. Mishra started the project at Hootsuite and has been a developer advocate at HashiCorp for the past year. Luke joined Mishra to help open source the project and has been leading the project for the past nine months.

Over the past few months, we have had many discussions between Mishra and Luke and the folks on the Terraform team here at HashiCorp. Through these conversations, we have come to understand that we have a shared vision for providing solutions for Terraform collaboration for teams large and small.

Today we are pleased to announce that both Mishra and Luke are on board as HashiCorp employees and we'll be working together to solve Terraform collaboration for everyone. In the near term, nothing will change for Atlantis and its users. Luke will continue to maintain Atlantis, review pull requests, triage issues, and write code.

We are still working out the details of how Atlantis will fit into the Terraform portfolio, but whatever direction we take, we're committed to keeping Atlantis functionality free and open source.

Okay, for now the modules I have written are pretty specific to the company I work at. I am working on making them more configurable and generic picked up a few lessons from Gruntwork talk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVgP63BkhKQ. I am even looking into adding some tests with terratest https://github.com/gruntwork-io/terratest. (I hope that Gruntwork isn’t a curse word to you all at CloudPosse)

Yea exactly! There are so many engineers as yourself in one-man silos. It’s so important to be able talk shop and bang ideas off peers in order to grow in the position.

catdevman avatar
catdevman

For sure. It is funny my background was systems/networking engineer (Linux - Cisco and HP mostly, some Motorola wireless controller stuff as well) then I started working in Software Development and now I found the happy middle ground. I would love to find out more about the process that CloudPosse goes through… I have found it very difficult to get buy-in on true DevOps. Non-Siloed teams where they can deploy their own code whenever they would like and get features out faster… and as someone that worked in Software Development I know I would like to have that power if all it took was learning a few extra tools but management seems to be the stumbling block for me. I have found that I really dislike the title DevOps Engineer… like makes it seem like one group/person is suppose to take care of a lot more then what is possible.

GitHub’s database has suffered network partition. https://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/3064898/github-down-major-outage They clearly use a distributed system, in which according to CAP theorem you can have only two out of three:

Consistency: Every read receives the most recent write or an error Availability: Every request receives a response that is not an error Partition tolerance: The system continues to operate despite an arbitrary number of messages being dropped (or delayed) by the network between nodes

They chose CP (no availability)

What are you working on?

SigmundFried avatar
SigmundFried

A fairly substantial cloud transformation that includes HPC on AWS

SigmundFried avatar
SigmundFried

moving towards containerization

Biotech

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Cool - so using Terraform presumably?

SigmundFried avatar
SigmundFried

more and more

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Are you using ECS or EKS (or kops)?

SigmundFried avatar
SigmundFried

currently ECS but kops is pretty alluring

SigmundFried avatar
SigmundFried

kinda what brought me in

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

yea, kops >> EKS >> ECS

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

kops does a great job of simplifying the long-term maintenance of kubernetes on AWS.

SigmundFried avatar
SigmundFried

simplifying the long-term maintenance of kubernetes on AWS you read my mind

SigmundFried avatar

of course it’s programming people that is always the initial challenge. That’s where I am knee-deep right now

specially the sciency types

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

SigmundFried avatar

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

yea, that’s one area it really shines… making it easy to autoscale GPU node pools

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

all the way from 0 to N

SigmundFried avatar
SigmundFried

ya so we have (historically) hand rolled our own auto-scaling solutions but I am convinced there is a far better way

SigmundFried avatar
SigmundFried

or at least a better way to roll em

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

yea, it’s basically reinventing the wheel. kubernetes is basically a cloud framework, like rails is a web framework

hey, I had a question for you guys, is there anyway to do bind mounts with your “terraform-aws-ecs-container-definition” module?

Jay avatar

I’ve been going through the readme but I don’t see mounts mentioned anywhere

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

oh hrm….

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

so we’re using it with Fargate mostly, so maybe we didn’t add the fields for that

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar

@Jay if you want to open a PR, we’ll promptly review it

speaking of teleport for ssh. i have a customer thats asking for ssh type access into a fargate container… as much as ive tried to persuade him against it. hes pretty steadfast in that requirement. looked at ecsctl but wondering if anyone around here has experience with a tool

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

unfortunately, not… this cannot be achieved on fargate using docker exec since that capability is not exposed

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

it would require deploying an SSH daemon alongside the other processes inside of the container, which I’m sure you don’t want to do

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

if you switch to ECS “classic” then you can do whatever you want since you BYOM to the cluster.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

but, hypotheticaly, if you did, here’s a base image for ya: https://github.com/cloudposse/bastion

cloudposse/bastion

Secure Bastion implemented as Docker Container running Alpine Linux with Google Authenticator & DUO MFA support - cloudposse/bastion

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

@Ryan Ryke would maybe a bastion suffice?

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

this wouldl allow you to deploy an ECS task to the cluster that you could expose to the internet

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

if you ssh to the bastion, you could then curl and access the internal services running on private subnets

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

of course, SSH would still require that those services have that running

Ryan Ryke avatar
Ryan Ryke

yeah bastion is in there, from there i was curious how we could do it

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

run the SSM agent in each container?

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

…which now has some kind of remote term capability in AWS web console

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

run tmate in every container.

Hi all. I’m quite new to Terraform so my question could be newbie but I need help. I’m using https://github.com/cloudposse/terraform-aws-elastic-beanstalk-environment to create beanstalk nodejs environment. I need to change NodeJS version - as I see I could do it using this namespace https://docs.aws.amazon.com//elasticbeanstalk/latest/dg/command-options-specific.html#command-options-nodejs but I don’t know where could I inject settings for this

cloudposse/terraform-aws-elastic-beanstalk-environment

Terraform module to provision an AWS Elastic Beanstalk Environment - cloudposse/terraform-aws-elastic-beanstalk-environment

Like this:

setting {
    namespace = "aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:nodejs"
    name      = "NodeVersion"
    value     = "8.6.4"
  }
Andy avatar

@bober2000 solution_stack_name “Elastic Beanstalk stack, e.g. Docker, Go, Node, Java, IIS. http://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/dg/concepts.platforms.html string no ` “

check out their example https://github.com/cloudposse/terraform-aws-elastic-beanstalk-environment/blob/master/examples/complete/main.tf . They specify solution_stack_name = "64bit Amazon Linux 2018.03 v2.12.2 running Docker 18.03.1-ce"

bober2000

Default platform: 6.14.4 - I need it to be set to 8.11.4 at

Andy avatar

So the setting you pasted above you’d have to add

Andy avatar
The Node.js platform includes a few Node.js versions in a single configuration. The following table lists them. The default version applies when the NodeVersion option in the aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:nodejs namespace isn't set. For details, see Node.js Platform Options in the AWS Elastic Beanstalk Developer Guide.

It all depends on use case of course. I first ran into the issue at a Serverless shop. In that scenario it wasn’t just secrets but nearly 100% of the behavior config was stored in param store. So I think we hit Params more than typical.

went looking for a published rate limit on AWS’s site later, but never found one, so no idea where that threshold sits. Best I could find where other people also seeing the boto3 failures and asking the same questions.

Luckily we DID do everything in unique accounts, and we first noticed it while load testing in Stage … so we were able to pivot before being SOL in prod.

for serverless i found that secrets manager worked nicely for me and my use cases

Max Moon avatar
Max Moon

still an aws service but i never ran into any rate limit issues with 50+ lambdas

is anybody else using that?

Hi Erik, I was intrigued by your Unlimited Staging Environments vid on codefresh.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Oh cool! We’ve actually taken that a bit further now and extended it with automatic destruction of environments when PRs are closed

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

and using Chamber for secrets and helmfile for deployment of helm releases

mallen avatar
mallen

nice, makes a real lot of sense. I would like to take a similar route.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

are you using k8s + helm?

mallen avatar
mallen

yeah we do, i spent a lot of time writing jenkins grooviness and to calm my rage I started to look for fresh ideas.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar

haha yea, Jenkins is a common route, but frankly after working with Codefresh for the past year couldn’t imagine going back.

mallen avatar
mallen

I’m not really a jenkins hater if it works i’m ok with it. codefresh and ideas like the unlimited dynamic staging environments are just making soo much better use of the power available (without investing lots of time). I’m also thinking of self service environment with some sort of live code sync would be a great pain easier, something like devspace, but Im in the early research stages.

Hi! I just discovered the CloudPosse website and Geodesic, and I was wondering why you chose Chamber for secrets management instead of Hashicorp Vault

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

@dserodio welcome!

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Sure - so Hashicorp vault is a great solution, but takes considerably more effort to manage over AWS SSM+Parameter Store.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Nothing about our strategy precludes the use of hashicorp vault, but using parameter store + ssm is a turnkey solution with no new overhead to manage.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)
11:47:24 PM
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

this is the prescribed architecture for managing vault, which doesn’t take into account the SDLC including upgrades, backups, DR, etc.

Hey Jarv! What brings you around?

jarv avatar

Just a fan of you guy’s work! Figured I’d stop by and say hi

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

awesome! always great to hear when we’re helping out

jarv avatar

Been messing around with the TF modules lately, but impressed with everything I’ve seen. Appreciate all your guy’s work on everything.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

have your seen our latest modules for EKS?

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

@Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) has been hard at work on those

jarv avatar

Not yet, will likely soon though. Taking a look at the user/chamber stuff currently actually

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Cool - yea, we developed those mostly for external CI/CD systems (in our case Codefresh)

jarv avatar

Was planning on doing something similar to what you used to do before moving to 99designs/aws-vault, at least for the moment. But figured it was worth taking a quick look at how you have that set up now.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

oh, so we still use aws-vault and chamber

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

they are complimentary

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

aws-vault is the best way to manage local AWS credentials for “assuming roles” (and not to be confused with hashicorp’s vault - in anyway)

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

so we like to use aws-vault for all local development contexts

:--1:1
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

aha, yes! as soon as we took a look at aws-vault we knew that our own implementation was not worth maintaining anymore

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

haha

jarv avatar

So I guess my question is (and totally realize I can look this up as well), how is user/permission management done with the new setup?

jarv avatar

Previously I was thinking designated IAM account with users getting something like:

            "Action": "sts:*",
            "Resource": "arn:aws:iam::*:role/${aws:username}",
            "Condition": {
                "StringEquals": {
                    "aws:PrincipalType": "User"
                }
            }

then to provision a user in other account’s (that trust’s the iam one) you just need to create a role named after their username. (I think this is somewhat similar to what you did before, could be wrong there though)

Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)

hey @jarv

Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)

take a look at our reference architectures https://docs.cloudposse.com/reference-architectures/

Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)

in short, we create a few AWS accounts:

Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)
  1. root (which is billing account) to store all IAM users and roles
jarv avatar

yep, this was just another setup I was considering vs chamber, etc.. (iam account is seperate but doesn’t need to be, similar to the reference-architecture that way)

Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)

this is complementary to chamber. we provision a separate chamber IAM user in all accounts (prod, staging, dev, testing) and use it to access SSM secrets

jarv avatar

ok cool, yeah so sounds like what I need to look into

jarv avatar

I went through the cold start on a test setup a bit ago, didn’t quite understand how this part worked exactly though.

jarv avatar

(I imagine I just need to dig into it a bit though)

Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)

ohh, we keep forgetting it as well

Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)

can show you if you are stuck

jarv avatar

heh, yeah for sure. Might need to take you up on that

jarv avatar

I’ll go ahead and make an attempt here though first, appreciate the offer

Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)

ok

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

@Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) I think he’s talking specifically about Chamber

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

segmenting access to SSM (chamber) secrets to IAM users

:--1:1
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) avatar
Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse)

yea ok

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

using our terraform modules

jarv avatar

Yeah actually personally would like to adopt the whole platform, but more longer term goal I think.

I’m kinda hoping we can use what we need for now and adopt where it makes sense to dedup work.. which also makes getting stuff approved from my end a lot easier as well.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

For sure! Plot a course

:--1:1
jarv avatar

and tbh I like to do with anything that get’s adopted really, need to know how it works first imo..

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

let’s move to #terraform

:--1:1

Chamber is pretty solid, but be careful/aware that AWS has API rate limits on the param store, so many companies after a certain size end up returning to Consul. But for startups/small businesses, I agree Chamber is too easy to ignore. Unless you have some really fancy dynamic auth/cert needs.

jarv avatar

Thanks good to know, shouldn’t be too many users for now.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

I could see that being a problem where there are hundreds of containers getting spawned in an account per minute for example

:--1:1
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

but also mitigated by having multiple accounts and never co-mingling prod with dev or staging
