nuage_vspk - Manage Nuage VSP environments

New in version 2.4.

Synopsis

  • Manage or find Nuage VSP entities, this includes create, update, delete, assign, unassign and find, with all supported properties.

Requirements (on host that executes module)

  • Python 2.7
  • Supports Nuage VSP 4.0Rx & 5.x.y
  • Proper VSPK-Python installed for your Nuage version
  • Tested with NuageX https://nuagex.io

Options

parameter required default choices comments
auth
yes
Dict with the authentication information required to connect to a Nuage VSP environment.
Requires a api_username parameter (example csproot).
Requires either a api_password parameter (example csproot) or a api_certificate and api_key parameters, which point to the certificate and key files for certificate based authentication.
Requires a api_enterprise parameter (example csp).
Requires a api_url parameter (example https://10.0.0.10:8443).
Requires a api_version parameter (example v4_0).
children
no
Can be used to specify a set of child entities.
A mandatory property of each child is the type.
Supported optional properties of each child are id, properties and match_filter.
The function of each of these properties is the same as in the general task definition.
This can be used recursively
Only useable in case state=present.
command
no
  • find
  • change_password
  • wait_for_job
  • get_csp_enterprise
Specifies a command to be executed.
With command=find, if parent_id and parent_type are defined, it will only search within the parent. Otherwise, if allowed, will search in the root object.
With command=find, if id is specified, it will only return the single entity matching the id.
With command=find, otherwise, if match_filter is define, it will use that filter to search.
With command=find, otherwise, if properties are defined, it will do an AND search using all properties.
With command=change_password, a password of a user can be changed. Warning - In case the password is the same as the existing, it will throw an error.
With command=wait_for_job, the module will wait for a job to either have a status of SUCCESS or ERROR. In case an ERROR status is found, the module will exit with an error.
With command=wait_for_job, the job will always be returned, even if the state is ERROR situation.
Either state or command needs to be defined, both can not be defined at the same time.
id
no
The ID of the entity you want to work on.
In combination with command=find, it will only return the single entity.
In combination with state, it will either update or delete this entity.
Will take precedence over match_filter and properties whenever an entity needs to be found.
match_filter
no
A filter used when looking (both in command and state for entities, in the format the Nuage VSP API expects.
If match_filter is defined, it will take precedence over the properties, but not on the id
parent_id
no
The ID of the parent of the entity you want to work on.
When state is specified, the entity will be gathered from this parent, if it exists, unless an id is specified.
When command=find is specified, the entity will be searched for in this parent, unless an id is specified.
If specified, parent_type also needs to be specified.
parent_type
no
The type of parent the ID is specified for (example Enterprise).
This should match the objects CamelCase class name in VSPK-Python.
If specified, parent_id also needs to be specified.
properties
no
Properties are the key, value pairs of the different properties an entity has.
If no id and no match_filter is specified, these are used to find or determine if the entity exists.
state
no
  • present
  • absent
Specifies the desired state of the entity.
If state=present, in case the entity already exists, will update the entity if it is needed.
If state=present, in case the relationship with the parent is a member relationship, will assign the entity as a member of the parent.
If state=absent, in case the relationship with the parent is a member relationship, will unassign the entity as a member of the parent.
Either state or command needs to be defined, both can not be defined at the same time.
type
yes
The type of entity you want to work on (example Enterprise).
This should match the objects CamelCase class name in VSPK-Python.

Notes

Note

  • Check mode is supported, but with some caveats. It will not do any changes, and if possible try to determine if it is able do what is requested.
  • In case a parent id is provided from a previous task, it might be empty and if a search is possible on root, it will do so, which can impact performance.

Status

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