Note

This plugin is part of the netapp.ontap collection (version 21.14.0).

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 netapp.ontap.

To use it in a playbook, specify: netapp.ontap.na_ontap_rest_info.

New in version 20.5.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • This module allows you to gather various information about ONTAP configuration using REST APIs

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • Ansible 2.9

  • Python3 netapp-lib (2018.11.13) or later. Install using ‘pip install netapp-lib’

  • netapp-lib 2020.3.12 is strongly recommended as it provides better error reporting for connection issues.

  • A physical or virtual clustered Data ONTAP system. The modules support Data ONTAP 9.1 and onward.

  • REST support requires ONTAP 9.6 or later.

  • To enable http on the cluster you must run the following commands ‘set -privilege advanced;’ ‘system services web modify -http-enabled true;’

use_rest
string
Default:
"auto"
REST API if supported by the target system for all the resources and attributes the module requires. Otherwise will revert to ZAPI.
always -- will always use the REST API

auto -- will try to use the REST Api
username
string
This can be a Cluster-scoped or SVM-scoped account, depending on whether a Cluster-level or SVM-level API is required.
For more information, please read the documentation https://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/nmsdk/9.4/.
Two authentication methods are supported
1. basic authentication, using username and password,
2. SSL certificate authentication, using a ssl client cert file, and optionally a private key file.
To use a certificate, the certificate must have been installed in the ONTAP cluster, and cert authentication must have been enabled.

aliases: user
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If set to no, the SSL certificates will not be validated.
This should only set to False used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.
