community.network.sros_config module – Manage Nokia SR OS device configuration

Note

This module is part of the community.network collection (version 4.0.1).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.network.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.network.sros_config.

Synopsis

  • Nokia SR OS configurations use a simple block indent file syntax for segmenting configuration into sections. This module provides an implementation for working with SR OS configuration sections in a deterministic way.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

after

string

The ordered set of commands to append to the end of the command stack if a change needs to be made. Just like with before this allows the playbook designer to append a set of commands to be executed after the command set.

backup

boolean

This argument will cause the module to create a full backup of the current running-config from the remote device before any changes are made. If the backup_options value is not given, the backup file is written to the backup folder in the playbook root directory. If the directory does not exist, it is created.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

backup_options

dictionary

This is a dict object containing configurable options related to backup file path. The value of this option is read only when backup is set to yes, if backup is set to no this option will be silently ignored.

dir_path

path

This option provides the path ending with directory name in which the backup configuration file will be stored. If the directory does not exist it will be first created and the filename is either the value of filename or default filename as described in filename options description. If the path value is not given in that case a backup directory will be created in the current working directory and backup configuration will be copied in filename within backup directory.

filename

string

The filename to be used to store the backup configuration. If the filename is not given it will be generated based on the hostname, current time and date in format defined by <hostname>_config.<current-date>@<current-time>

before

string

The ordered set of commands to push on to the command stack if a change needs to be made. This allows the playbook designer the opportunity to perform configuration commands prior to pushing any changes without affecting how the set of commands are matched against the system.

config

string

The config argument allows the playbook designer to supply the base configuration to be used to validate configuration changes necessary. If this argument is provided, the module will not download the running-config from the remote node.

defaults

aliases: detail

boolean

This argument specifies whether or not to collect all defaults when getting the remote device running config. When enabled, the module will get the current config by issuing the command admin display-config detail.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

force

boolean

The force argument instructs the module to not consider the current devices running-config. When set to true, this will cause the module to push the contents of src into the device without first checking if already configured.

Note this argument should be considered deprecated. To achieve the equivalent, set the match=none which is idempotent. This argument will be removed in a future release.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

lines

aliases: commands

string

The ordered set of commands that should be configured in the section. The commands must be the exact same commands as found in the device running-config. Be sure to note the configuration command syntax as some commands are automatically modified by the device config parser. The lines argument only supports current context lines. See EXAMPLES

match

string

Instructs the module on the way to perform the matching of the set of commands against the current device config. If match is set to line, commands are matched line by line. If match is set to none, the module will not attempt to compare the source configuration with the running configuration on the remote device.

Choices:

  • line ← (default)

  • none

parents

string

The ordered set of parents that uniquely identify the section or hierarchy the commands should be checked against. If the parents argument is omitted, the commands are checked against the set of top level or global commands.

replace

string

Instructs the module on the way to perform the configuration on the device. If the replace argument is set to line then the modified lines are pushed to the device in configuration mode. If the replace argument is set to block then the entire command block is pushed to the device in configuration mode if any line is not correct.

Choices:

  • line ← (default)

  • block

save

boolean

The save argument instructs the module to save the running- config to the startup-config at the conclusion of the module running. If check mode is specified, this argument is ignored.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

src

string

Specifies the source path to the file that contains the configuration or configuration template to load. The path to the source file can either be the full path on the Ansible control host or a relative path from the playbook or role root directory. This argument is mutually exclusive with lines, parents.
