The public key resource allows SSH public keys to be stored into Rundeck's key store. The key store is where Rundeck keeps credentials that are needed to access the nodes on which it runs commands.

This resource also allows the retrieval of an existing public key from the store, so that it may be used in the configuration of other resources such as aws_key_pair.

Example Usage

resource "rundeck_public_key" "anvils" {
    path = "anvils/"
    key_material = "ssh-rsa yada-yada-yada"

Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • path - (Required) The path within the key store where the key will be stored. By convention this path name normally ends with ".pub" and otherwise has the same name as the associated private key.

  • key_material - (Optional) The public key string to store, serialized in any way that is accepted by OpenSSH. If this is not included, key_material becomes an attribute that can be used to read the already-existing key material in the Rundeck store.

The key material is included inline as a string, which is consistent with the way a public key is provided to the aws_key_pair, cloudstack_ssh_keypair, digitalocean_ssh_key and openstack_compute_keypair_v2 resources. This means the key_material argument can be populated from the interpolation of the public_key attribute of such a keypair resource, or vice-versa.

Attributes Reference

The following attributes are exported:

  • url - The URL at which the key material can be retrieved from the key store by other clients.

  • key_material - If key_material is omitted in the configuration, it becomes an attribute that exposes the key material already stored at the given path.
