os_networks_facts - Retrieve facts about one or more OpenStack networks.

New in version 2.0.

Synopsis

  • Retrieve facts about one or more networks from OpenStack.

Requirements (on host that executes module)

  • python >= 2.6
  • python >= 2.7
  • shade

Options

parameter required default choices comments
api_timeout
no None
How long should the socket layer wait before timing out for API calls. If this is omitted, nothing will be passed to the requests library.
auth
no
Dictionary containing auth information as needed by the cloud's auth plugin strategy. For the default password plugin, this would contain auth_url, username, password, project_name and any information about domains if the cloud supports them. For other plugins, this param will need to contain whatever parameters that auth plugin requires. This parameter is not needed if a named cloud is provided or OpenStack OS_* environment variables are present.
auth_type
no password
Name of the auth plugin to use. If the cloud uses something other than password authentication, the name of the plugin should be indicated here and the contents of the auth parameter should be updated accordingly.
availability_zone
no
Ignored. Present for backwards compatability
cacert
no None
A path to a CA Cert bundle that can be used as part of verifying SSL API requests.
cert
no None
A path to a client certificate to use as part of the SSL transaction.
cloud
no
Named cloud to operate against. Provides default values for auth and auth_type. This parameter is not needed if auth is provided or if OpenStack OS_* environment variables are present.
endpoint_type
no public
  • public
  • internal
  • admin
Endpoint URL type to fetch from the service catalog.
filters
no
A dictionary of meta data to use for further filtering. Elements of this dictionary may be additional dictionaries.
key
no None
A path to a client key to use as part of the SSL transaction.
name
no
Name or ID of the Network
region_name
no
Name of the region.
timeout
no 180
How long should ansible wait for the requested resource.
validate_certs
no
Whether or not SSL API requests should be verified. Before 2.3 this defaulted to True.

aliases: verify
wait
no yes
  • yes
  • no
Should ansible wait until the requested resource is complete.

Return Values

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

name description returned type sample
openstack_networks has all the openstack facts about the networks always, but can be null complex
contains:
name description returned type sample
status Network status. success string
subnets Subnet(s) included in this network. success list of strings
name Name given to the network. success string
shared Network shared flag. success boolean
tenant_id Tenant id associated with this network. success string
id Unique UUID. success string


Notes

Note

  • The standard OpenStack environment variables, such as OS_USERNAME may be used instead of providing explicit values.
  • Auth information is driven by os-client-config, which means that values can come from a yaml config file in /etc/ansible/openstack.yaml, /etc/openstack/clouds.yaml or ~/.config/openstack/clouds.yaml, then from standard environment variables, then finally by explicit parameters in plays. More information can be found at http://docs.openstack.org/developer/os-client-config

Status

This module is flagged as preview which means that it is not guaranteed to have a backwards compatible interface.
