»Configuration Reference

There are many configuration options available for the builder. They are segmented below into two categories: required and optional parameters. Within each category, the available configuration keys are alphabetized.

In addition to the options listed here, a communicator can be configured for this builder. In addition to the options defined there, a private key file can also be supplied to override the typical auto-generated key:

  • ssh_private_key_file (string) - Path to a PEM encoded private key file to use to authenticate with SSH. The ~ can be used in path and will be expanded to the home directory of current user.


  • source_image_name (string) - 1&1 Server Appliance name of type IMAGE.

  • token (string) - 1&1 REST API Token. This can be specified via environment variable ONEANDONE_TOKEN


  • data_center_name - Name of virtual data center. Possible values "ES", "US", "GB", "DE". Default value "US"

  • disk_size (string) - Amount of disk space for this image in GB. Defaults to "50"

  • image_name (string) - Resulting image. If "image_name" is not provided Packer will generate it

  • retries (number) - Number of retries Packer will make status requests while waiting for the build to complete. Default value "600".


Here is a basic example:

      "type": "oneandone",
      "disk_size": "50",
      "image_name": "test5",
      "source_image_name": "ubuntu1604-64min",
      "ssh_username": "root",
      "ssh_private_key_file": "/path/to/private/ssh/key"
{  "builders": [    {      "type": "oneandone",      "disk_size": "50",      "image_name": "test5",      "source_image_name": "ubuntu1604-64min",      "ssh_username": "root",      "ssh_private_key_file": "/path/to/private/ssh/key"    }  ]}
