  • python >= 2.7
  • azure == 2.0.0rc5

Options

parameter required default choices comments
ad_user
no

client_id
no
Azure client ID. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.
deployment_mode
no incremental
  • complete
  • incremental
In incremental mode, resources are deployed without deleting existing resources that are not included in the template. In complete mode resources are deployed and existing resources in the resource group not included in the template are deleted.
deployment_name
no ansible-arm
The name of the deployment to be tracked in the resource group deployment history. Re-using a deployment name will overwrite the previous value in the resource group's deployment history.
location
no westus
The geo-locations in which the resource group will be located.
parameters
no
A hash of all the required template variables for the deployment template. This parameter is mutually exclusive with 'parameters_link'. Either one of them is required if "state" parameter is "present".
parameters_link
no
Uri of file containing the parameters body. This parameter is mutually exclusive with 'parameters'. Either one of them is required if "state" parameter is "present".
password
no
Active Directory user password. Use when authenticating with an Active Directory user rather than service principal.
profile
no
Security profile found in ~/.azure/credentials file.
resource_group_name
yes
The resource group name to use or create to host the deployed template
secret
no
Azure client secret. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.
state
no present
  • present
  • absent
If state is "present", template will be created. If state is "present" and if deployment exists, it will be updated. If state is "absent", stack will be removed.
subscription_id
no
Your Azure subscription Id.
template
no
A hash containing the templates inline. This parameter is mutually exclusive with 'template_link'. Either one of them is required if "state" parameter is "present".
template_link
no
Uri of file containing the template body. This parameter is mutually exclusive with 'template'. Either one of them is required if "state" parameter is "present".
tenant
no
Azure tenant ID. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.
wait_for_deployment_completion
no True
  • yes
  • no
Whether or not to block until the deployment has completed.
wait_for_deployment_polling_period
no 10
Time (in seconds) to wait between polls when waiting for deployment completion.

# Create or update a template deployment based on a uri to the template and parameters specified inline.
# This deploys a VM with SSH support for a given public key, then stores the result in 'azure_vms'. The result is then
# used to create a new host group. This host group is then used to wait for each instance to respond to the public IP SSH.

Return Values

Common return values are documented here Return Values, the following are the fields unique to this module:

name description returned type sample
deployment Deployment details always dict {'instances': {'type': 'list', 'description': 'Provides the public IP addresses for each VM instance.', 'returned': 'always'}, 'group_name': {'type': 'string', 'description': 'Name of the resource group', 'returned': 'always'}, 'id': {'type': 'string', 'description': 'The Azure ID of the deployment', 'returned': 'always'}, 'name': {'type': 'string', 'description': 'Name of the deployment', 'returned': 'always'}, 'outputs': {'type': 'dict', 'description': 'Dictionary of outputs received from the deployment', 'returned': 'always'}}


Notes

Note

  • For authentication with Azure you can pass parameters, set environment variables or use a profile stored in ~/.azure/credentials. Authentication is possible using a service principal or Active Directory user. To authenticate via service principal pass subscription_id, client_id, secret and tenant or set set environment variables AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID, AZURE_CLIENT_ID, AZURE_SECRET and AZURE_TENANT.
  • To Authentication via Active Directory user pass ad_user and password, or set AZURE_AD_USER and AZURE_PASSWORD in the environment.
  • Alternatively, credentials can be stored in ~/.azure/credentials. This is an ini file containing a [default] section and the following keys: subscription_id, client_id, secret and tenant or subscription_id, ad_user and password. It is also possible to add additional profiles. Specify the profile by passing profile or setting AZURE_PROFILE in the environment.
