It will fetch IDs of the VMs disks, snapshots, etc. User can configure to fetch other attributes of the nested entities by specifying nested_attributes.
nested_attributes
(added in 2.3)
no
Specifies list of the attributes which should be fetched from the API.
This parameter apply only when fetch_nested is true.
snapshot_id
no
Id of the snaphost we want to retrieve facts about.
vm
yes
Name of the VM with snapshot.

Examples

# Examples don't contain auth parameter for simplicity,
# look at ovirt_auth module to see how to reuse authentication:

# Gather facts about all snapshots which description start with C(update) for VM named C(centos7):
- ovirt_snapshots_facts:
    vm: centos7
    description: update*
- debug:
    var: ovirt_snapshots

Return Values

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

name description returned type sample
ovirt_snapshots List of dictionaries describing the snapshot. Snapshot attribtues are mapped to dictionary keys, all snapshot attributes can be found at following url: http://ovirt.github.io/ovirt-engine-api-model/master/#types/snapshot. On success. list


Notes
