os_recordset - Manage OpenStack DNS recordsets

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Manage OpenStack DNS recordsets. Recordsets can be created, deleted or updated. Only the records, description, and ttl values can be updated.

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.

    recordset_type: primary
    records: ['10.1.1.1']
    description: test recordset
    ttl: 3600

# Update the TTL on existing "www.example.net." recordset

    cloud: mycloud
    state: present
    zone: example.net.
    name: www
    ttl: 7200

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.
