Notes

Note

  • As Exoscale DNS uses the same API key and secret for all services, we reuse the config used for Exscale Compute based on CloudStack. The config is read from several locations, in the following order. The CLOUDSTACK_KEY, CLOUDSTACK_SECRET environment variables. A CLOUDSTACK_CONFIG environment variable pointing to an .ini file, A cloudstack.ini file in the current working directory. A .cloudstack.ini file in the users home directory. Optionally multiple credentials and endpoints can be specified using ini sections in cloudstack.ini. Use the argument api_region to select the section name, default section is cloudstack.
  • This module does not support multiple A records and will complain properly if you try.
  • More information Exoscale DNS can be found on https://community.exoscale.ch/documentation/dns/.
  • This module supports check mode and diff.
