Unable to upload files to DigitalOcean Spaces using Ansible

Using the Ansible on a Ubuntu 16.04 target, I'm unable to upload files to DigitalOcean Spaces using aws_s3 module.

This is the playbook task:

    - name: Uploading backup
        aws_access_key: "..."
        aws_secret_key: "..."
        region: nyc3
        s3_url: ""
        bucket: "working-bucket"
        object: "my_file.tar.gz"
        src: "my_file.tar.gz"
        mode: put
        rgw: True

and this is the error:

   "module_stderr":"OpenSSH_7.4p1, LibreSSL 2.5.0\r\ndebug1: Reading configuration data /Users/viniciussantana/.ssh/config\r\ndebug3: kex names ok: [diffie-hellman-group1-sha1]\r\ndebug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config\r\ndebug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 53: Applying options for *\r\ndebug1: auto-mux: Trying existing master\r\ndebug2: fd 3 setting O_NONBLOCK\r\ndebug2: mux_client_hello_exchange: master version 4\r\ndebug3: mux_client_forwards: request forwardings: 0 local, 0 remote\r\ndebug3: mux_client_request_session: entering\r\ndebug3: mux_client_request_alive: entering\r\ndebug3: mux_client_request_alive: done pid = 3258\r\ndebug3: mux_client_request_session: session request sent\r\ndebug1: mux_client_request_session: master session id: 2\r\ndebug3: mux_client_read_packet: read header failed: Broken pipe\r\ndebug2: Received exit status from master 0\r\nShared connection to closed.\r\n",

   "msg":"MODULE FAILURE",

Does anyone managed to make it work? I'm not sure if this a problem in Ansible or just something else because there's a little of upload activity before the error happens.

Are you using Signature v4 for the API requests? I believe Spaces is currently not compatible with this.

  • I'm not sure which version of the Signature is Ansible using.

    As other tasks works (listing and downloading files, for example), my guess is that they're using v2.
