os_stack - Add/Remove Heat Stack

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Add or Remove a Stack to an OpenStack Heat

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.
environment
no None
List of environment files that should be used for the stack creation
key
no None
A path to a client key to use as part of the SSL transaction.
name
yes
Name of the stack that should be created, name could be char and digit, no space
parameters
no None
Dictionary of parameters for the stack creation
region_name
no
Name of the region.
rollback
no
Rollback stack creation
state
no present
  • present
  • absent

template
no None
Path of the template file to use for the stack creation
timeout
no 3600
Maximum number of seconds to wait for the stack creation
validate_certs

Whether or not SSL API requests should be verified. Before 2.3 this defaulted to True.

aliases: verify
wait

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.
