azure_rm_securitygroup - Manage Azure network security groups.

New in version 2.1.

Synopsis

  • Create, update or delete a network security group. A security group contains Access Control List (ACL) rules that allow or deny network traffic to subnets or individual network interfaces. A security group is created with a set of default security rules and an empty set of security rules. Shape traffic flow by adding rules to the empty set of security rules.

Requirements (on host that executes module)

  • python >= 2.7
  • azure == 2.0.0rc5

Options

parameter required default choices comments
ad_user
no
Active Directory username. Use when authenticating with an Active Directory user rather than service principal.

client_id
no
Azure client ID. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.
default_rules

The set of default rules automatically added to a security group at creation. In general default rules will not be modified. Modify rules to shape the flow of traffic to or from a subnet or NIC. See rules below for the makeup of a rule dict.
location
no resource_group location
Valid azure location. Defaults to location of the resource group.
name
no

purge_rules
no
Remove any existing rules not matching those defined in the rules parameters.

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.
