KMS lookups give values $VAL wrapped as "b'$VAL'" when using python 3

See original GitHub issue

While attempting to encrypt a password ‘hello!’ per the directions here:

  1. the command given for encryption fails entirely
  2. after getting encryption working, Stacker populated incorrect values

using the suggested encryption command aws kms encrypt --key-id alias/DbConnectionKey --plaintext 'hello!' --output text --query CiphertextBlob results in:

Invalid base64: "hello!"

From there, I attempted to use aws kms encrypt --key-id alias/DbConnectionKey --plaintext fileb://<(echo -n 'hello!') --output text --query CiphertextBlob and used the result to create a secret via Stacker. In this secret, I see:


Does this need a different configuration than the one from the docs, or is there another way I should be doing this? I’m currently using Stacker 1.7.0 on python 3.5.3. I’ve also tried dropping the ‘!’ off the end and received the same behavior with just “hello”.
