The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.
openstacksdk >= 0.12.0
python >= 3.6
The standard OpenStack environment variables, such as
OS_USERNAMEmay be used instead of providing explicit values.
Auth information is driven by openstacksdk, which means that values can come from a yaml config file in /etc/ansible/openstack.yaml, /etc/openstack/clouds.yaml or ~/.config/openstack/clouds.yaml, then from standard environment variables, then finally by explicit parameters in plays. More information can be found at https://docs.openstack.org/openstacksdk/
Facts returned by this module are added/updated in the
hostvars host facts and can be referenced by name just like any other host fact. They do not need to be registered in order to use them.
