func NewCredentials

func NewCredentials(client *ec2metadata.Client, window time.Duration) *credentials.Credentials

    NewCredentials returns a pointer to a new Credentials object wrapping the EC2RoleProvider.

    Takes a custom http.Client which can be configured for custom handling of things such as timeout.

    Endpoint is the URL that the EC2RoleProvider will connect to when retrieving role and credentials.

    Window is the expiry window that will be subtracted from the expiry returned by the role credential request. This is done so that the credentials will expire sooner than their actual lifespan.


    type EC2RoleProvider

    type EC2RoleProvider struct {
    	// EC2Metadata client to use when connecting to EC2 metadata service
    	Client *ec2metadata.Client
    	// ExpiryWindow will allow the credentials to trigger refreshing prior to
    	// the credentials actually expiring. This is beneficial so race conditions
    	// with expiring credentials do not cause request to fail unexpectedly
    	// due to ExpiredTokenException exceptions.
    	// So a ExpiryWindow of 10s would cause calls to IsExpired() to return true
    	// 10 seconds before the credentials are actually expired.
    	// If ExpiryWindow is 0 or less it will be ignored.
    	ExpiryWindow time.Duration

      A EC2RoleProvider retrieves credentials from the EC2 service, and keeps track if those credentials are expired.

      Example how to configure the EC2RoleProvider with custom http Client, Endpoint or ExpiryWindow

      p := &ec2rolecreds.EC2RoleProvider{
          // Pass in a custom timeout to be used when requesting
          // IAM EC2 Role credentials.
          Client: &http.Client{
              Timeout: 10 * time.Second,
          // Use default EC2 Role metadata endpoint, Alternate endpoints can be
          // specified setting Endpoint to something else.
          Endpoint: "",
          // Do not use early expiry of credentials. If a non zero value is
          // specified the credentials will be expired early
          ExpiryWindow: 0,

      func (*EC2RoleProvider) Retrieve

      func (m *EC2RoleProvider) Retrieve() (credentials.Value, error)

        Retrieve retrieves credentials from the EC2 service. Error will be returned if the request fails, or unable to extract the desired credentials.
