os_user - Manage OpenStack Identity Users

New in version 2.0.

Synopsis

Requirements (on host that executes module)

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

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.

This parameter is not needed if a named cloud is provided or OpenStack OS_* environment variables are present.

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.
