Notes

Note

  • It is recommended that plays utilizing this module be run with serial: 1 to avoid exceeding the API request limit imposed by the Rackspace CloudDNS API
  • The following environment variables can be used, RAX_USERNAME, RAX_API_KEY, RAX_CREDS_FILE, RAX_CREDENTIALS, RAX_REGION.
  • RAX_CREDENTIALS and RAX_CREDS_FILE points to a credentials file appropriate for pyrax. See https://github.com/rackspace/pyrax/blob/master/docs/getting_started.md#authenticating
  • RAX_USERNAME and RAX_API_KEY obviate the use of a credentials file
  • RAX_REGION defines a Rackspace Public Cloud region (DFW, ORD, LON, ...)
