Upgrading my AWS CDK stacks to AWS CDKv2

The CDK has been released in two major versions, v1 and v2. AWS CDK v1 entered maintenance on June 1, 2022. As part of some recent talks and demos I was doing, I wanted to update the CDK stacks for Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow (MWAA) and thought I would outline what I learned along the way.

Prepping for CDKv2

In AWS CDKv1, the different CDK constructs were imported as discrete Python libraries (for example aws-cdk.aws-s3-deployment, aws-cdk.aws-mwaa, aws_cdk.aws-kms etc) that were imported in the requirements.txt file. AWS CDKv2 has a different approach, so I needed to clean up all the CDK construct modules that I had imported for the CDKv1 stacks. I ended up using the following command to do this.

You can read more about the differences in this post, Migrating to AWS CDK v2

pip list |grep cdk | xargs pip uninstall -y
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I updated my requirements.txt file as follows:

aws-cdk-lib==2.2.0
constructs>=10.0.0,<11.0.0
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Finally, I had to update the cdk.json file as some of the values have changed.

{
  "app": "python app.py",
  "context": {
    "@aws-cdk/aws-apigateway:usagePlanKeyOrderInsensitiveId": false,
    "@aws-cdk/aws-cloudfront:defaultSecurityPolicyTLSv1.2_2021": false,
    "@aws-cdk/aws-rds:lowercaseDbIdentifier": false,
    "@aws-cdk/core:stackRelativeExports": false
  }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Installing AWS CDKv2

To install CDKv2, I did the following:

npm install -g aws-cdk
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You can check that it has updated by running:

cdk --version
2.28.1 (build d035432)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

It should display 2.x - if it displays 1.x, then check your alias commands, alternatives or try and uninstall and then reinstall.

If you need to keep both CDKv1 and v2, then consider using alias commands to help you.

alias cdk1="npx aws-cdk@1.x"
alias cdk="npx aws-cdk@2.x"

Re-bootstraping AWS CDK

One of the first things once I fixed/updated my CDK stacks was to re-bootstrap CDK. I did not know I had to do that, but the first time I did a "cdk deploy" I was prompted with this message first:



current credentials could not be used to assume 'arn:aws:iam::704533066374:role/cdk-hnb659fds-lookup-role-704533066374-eu-central-1', but are for the right account. Proceeding anyway.

followed quickly by an error message

I was able to fix this quickly by running the CDK Bootstrap command:



cdk bootstrap aws://704533066374/eu-central-1


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

!Note I was doing this with an IAM user with AdminAccess.



Using default execution policy of 'arn:aws:iam::aws:policy/AdministratorAccess'. Pass '--cloudformation-execution-policies' to customize. 


In the past when I have talked with builders who do not have Admin access but are using either an IAM user or a Role, they have to following this doc and modify the bootstrap template with the role and permissions they have. (--cloudformation-execution-policies) also see this issue

Changes to imports and other niggles

The first thing I needed to do was get my head around the changes to the imports and libraries within my stacks. For example, I had to change from




from aws_cdk import core
from aws_cdk.core import Tags
import aws_cdk.aws_ec2 as ec2
import aws_cdk.aws_s3 as s3
import aws_cdk.aws_s3_deployment as s3deploy
import aws_cdk.aws_mwaa as mwaa
import aws_cdk.aws_iam as iam
import aws_cdk.aws_kms as kms


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

to this



from aws_cdk import (
    aws_iam as iam,
    aws_ec2 as ec2,
    aws_s3 as s3,
    aws_s3_deployment as s3deploy,
    aws_mwaa as mwaa,
    aws_kms as kms,
    Stack,
    CfnOutput,
    Tags
)
from constructs import Construct


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Which is actually nicer and cleaner I think. I had to update references to the classes within my code, but that was pretty straight forward and just took some time to go through to make sure I had not missed anything.

Fixing changes to the VPC private subnet constructs

In some of the constructs, it looks like some of the values have changed between v1 and v2. In the VPC construct for example, creating a Private subnet used to be done via:



        self.vpc = ec2.Vpc(
            self,
            id="MWAA-Hybrid-ApacheAirflow-VPC",
            cidr="10.192.0.0/16",
            max_azs=2,
            nat_gateways=1,
            subnet_configuration=[
                ec2.SubnetConfiguration(
                    name="public", cidr_mask=24,
                    reserved=False, subnet_type=ec2.SubnetType.PUBLIC),
                ec2.SubnetConfiguration(
                    name="private", cidr_mask=24,
                    reserved=False, subnet_type=ec2.SubnetType.PRIVATE)
            ],
            enable_dns_hostnames=True,
            enable_dns_support=True
        )


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and this had to be updated to



        self.vpc = ec2.Vpc(
            self,
            id="MWAA-Hybrid-ApacheAirflow-VPC",
            cidr="10.192.0.0/16",
            max_azs=2,
            nat_gateways=1,
            subnet_configuration=[
                ec2.SubnetConfiguration(
                    name="public", cidr_mask=24,
                    reserved=False, subnet_type=ec2.SubnetType.PUBLIC),
                ec2.SubnetConfiguration(
                    name="private", cidr_mask=24,
                    reserved=False, subnet_type=ec2.SubnetType.PRIVATE_WITH_NAT)
            ],
            enable_dns_hostnames=True,
            enable_dns_support=True
        )


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

This was the only one (PRIVATE to PRIVATE_WITH_NAT) that I needed to adjust, but you may have others.

Fixing SSM Errors

Once the CDK stacks were validated and clear for deployment, I encountered a "feature" when generating IAM policies and roles. It was whilst fixing a different CDK stack (Orchestrating Hybrid Workflows with Apache Airflow, GitHub repo blogpost-airflow-hybrid that I found that even though the stack had synthesised ok, during the deployment, I got the following error:



Invalid principal in policy: "SERVICE":"ssm.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com" (Service: AmazonIdentityManagement; Status Code: 400; Error Code: MalformedPolicyDocument; Request ID: 5763050d-c789-49ef-b7d7-9e80a62f0e9e; Proxy: null)


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

This error appeared in both the command prompt where I ran the "cdk deploy", but also appeared in the CloudFormation console which is a good place to go when you are trying to figure out what is going wrong.

Upon looking at the synthesised CloudFormation template, you could see that IAM Principal was regionalising the 'ssm.amazonaws.com' (so it was creating this as 'ssm.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com' in my case) which was a problem. In my stack I defined the following role:



        external_task_def_policy_document_role = iam.Role(
            self,
            "ExternalECSAnywhereRole",
            role_name=f"{props['ecsclustername']}-ExternalECSAnywhereRole",
            assumed_by=iam.ServicePrincipal("ssm.amazonaws.com")
        )


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and this was failing (it worked fine in CDKv1). In the end, after reading GitHub issues 17646 and 16188, I was able to fix this issue within my stack by adding this code:



        ssmfix = external_task_def_policy_document_role.node.default_child
        ssmfix.add_property_override(
            "AssumeRolePolicyDocument.Statement.0.Principal.Service", "ssm.amazonaws.com"
        )


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Deploying the updated stacks

Once I had made these changes, I was then able to deploy the MWAA stack, first the backend (VPC and Networking) and then the environment.

You can find the code for this in the GitHub repository, blogpost-cdk-mwaa

Conclusion

It was pretty straight forward in the end to update my stacks, but it did take me longer thanks to this being the first time and also encountering the SSM issue along the way. As I have updated subsequent stacks, it has definitely become much easier and quicker, so I recommend that you begin on a simple stack to gain confidence and then apply that to your other stacks.

If you encounter any issues running my stacks on CDKv2, please raise an issue on the GitHub rep and I will take a look and fix.

There is another special case if you are using API Gateway v2 (HTTP API).
I know this might not be relevant to your stacks in particular, but it was the main thing that made trying to update mine difficult until I found it.

They require the following Python packages:
aws-cdk.aws-apigatewayv2-alpha
aws-cdk.aws-apigatewayv2-integrations-alpha

Yeah, I suspect as I start to update other stacks that use more esoteric construct libraries I will bump into these. Thanks for sharing.

Love CDK, but I wish they did a better job with the documentation site migration.

Even though CDK 2 has been out for months now, google/ddg search results pretty much always take me to CDK 1 site and clicking on the link to new version takes me to the home page (for some of the sub-projects I think it retains the context but for all others I have to find what I needed from the huge sidebar menu afresh).
