junos_netconf - Configures the Junos Netconf system service

New in version 2.1.

Synopsis

  • This module provides an abstraction that enables and configures the netconf system service running on Junos devices. This module can be used to easily enable the Netconf API. Netconf provides a programmatic interface for working with configuration and state resources as defined in RFC 6242.

Options

parameter required default choices comments
netconf_port
(added in 2.2)
no 830
This argument specifies the port the netconf service should listen on for SSH connections. The default port as defined in RFC 6242 is 830.

aliases: listens_on

A dict object containing connection details.
Dictionary object provider
parameter required default choices comments
username
no
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
host
yes
Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.
ssh_keyfile
no
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is the path to the key used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
timeout
no 10
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.
password
no
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
no 22
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. The port value will default to the well known SSH port of 22 (for transport=cli) or port 830 (for transport=netconf) device.
state
no present
  • present
  • absent
Specifies the state of the junos_netconf resource on the remote device. If the state argument is set to present the netconf service will be configured. If the state argument is set to absent the netconf service will be removed from the configuration.
