Return Values

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

name description returned type sample
end_state k/v pairs of configuration after module execution verbose mode dict {'evn_source_ip': '6.6.6.6', 'evn_peer_ip': ['7.7.7.7'], 'evn_bgp': 'enable'}
changed check to see if a change was made on the device always boolean True
updates commands sent to the device always list ['evn bgp', 'source-address 6.6.6.6', 'peer 7.7.7.7']
proposed k/v pairs of parameters passed into module verbose mode dict {'evn_source_ip': '6.6.6.6', 'state': 'present', 'evn_peer_ip': '7.7.7.7', 'evn_bgp': 'enable'}
existing k/v pairs of existing configuration verbose mode dict {'evn_source_ip': None, 'evn_peer_ip': [], 'evn_bgp': 'disable'}
