It defaults to the private_key basename, without extension.

aliases: cert_name
compare_export_policy

compare_snapshot
The name of the snapshot to compare with snapshot.
description
The description for the Import Policy.

aliases: descr
export_policy
required
The export policy that the snapshot is associated to.
fail_on_decrypt
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Determines if the APIC should fail the rollback if unable to decrypt secured data.
The APIC defaults to yes when unset.
host
required
IP Address or hostname of APIC resolvable by Ansible control host.

aliases: hostname
import_mode
    Choices:
  • atomic
  • best-effort
Determines how the import should be handled by the APIC.
The APIC defaults to atomic when unset.
import_policy
The name of the Import Policy to use for config rollback.
import_type
    Choices:
  • merge

Determines how the current and snapshot configuration should be compared for replacement.
The APIC defaults to replace when unset.
output_level
    Choices:
  • debug
  • info
  • normal ←
Influence the output of this ACI module.
normal means the standard output, incl. current dict
info adds informational output, incl. previous, proposed and sent dicts
debug adds debugging output, incl. filter_string, method, response, status and url information
password
required
The password to use for authentication.
This option is mutual exclusive with private_key. If private_key is provided too, it will be used instead.
port
Port number to be used for REST connection.
The default value depends on parameter `use_ssl`.
private_key
required
PEM formatted file that contains your private key to be used for signature-based authentication.
The name of the key (without extension) is used as the certificate name in ACI, unless certificate_name is specified.
This option is mutual exclusive with password. If password is provided too, it will be ignored.

aliases: cert_key
snapshot
required
The name of the snapshot to rollback to, or the base snapshot to use for comparison.
The aci_snapshot module can be used to query the list of available snapshots.
state

Use rollback for reverting the configuration to a previous snapshot.
timeout
int
Default:
30
The socket level timeout in seconds.
use_proxy
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, it will not use a proxy, even if one is defined in an environment variable on the target hosts.

If no, an HTTP connection will be used instead of the default HTTPS connection.
username Default:
