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

New in version 20.7.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Install or delete security certificates on ONTAP. (Create and sign will come in a second iteration)

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;’

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,
