Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_timeout
integer
How long should the socket layer wait before timing out for API calls. If this is omitted, nothing will be passed to the requests library.
auth
dictionary
Dictionary containing auth information as needed by the cloud's auth plugin strategy. For the default password plugin, this would contain auth_url, username, password, project_name and any information about domains (for example, user_domain_name or project_domain_name) if the cloud supports them. For other plugins, this param will need to contain whatever parameters that auth plugin requires. This parameter is not needed if a named cloud is provided or OpenStack OS_* environment variables are present.
auth_type
string
Name of the auth plugin to use. If the cloud uses something other than password authentication, the name of the plugin should be indicated here and the contents of the auth parameter should be updated accordingly.
availability_zone
string
Ignored. Present for backwards compatibility
bios_interface
string
The bios interface for this node, e.g. "no-bios".
boot_interface
string
The boot interface for this node, e.g. "pxe".
ca_cert
string
A path to a CA Cert bundle that can be used as part of verifying SSL API requests.

aliases: cacert
chassis_uuid
string
Associate the node with a pre-defined chassis.
client_cert
string
A path to a client certificate to use as part of the SSL transaction.

aliases: cert
client_key
string
A path to a client key to use as part of the SSL transaction.

aliases: key
cloud
raw
Named cloud or cloud config to operate against. If cloud is a string, it references a named cloud config as defined in an OpenStack clouds.yaml file. Provides default values for auth and auth_type. This parameter is not needed if auth is provided or if OpenStack OS_* environment variables are present. If cloud is a dict, it contains a complete cloud configuration like would be in a section of clouds.yaml.
console_interface
string
The console interface for this node, e.g. "no-console".
deploy_interface
string
The deploy interface for this node, e.g. "iscsi".
driver
string
The name of the Ironic Driver to use with this node.
Required when state=present
driver_info
dictionary / required
Information for this server's driver. Will vary based on which driver is in use. Any sub-field which is populated will be validated during creation. For compatibility reasons sub-fields `power`, `deploy`, `management` and `console` are flattened.
inspect_interface
string
The interface used for node inspection, e.g. "no-inspect".
interface
string
    Choices:
  • admin
  • internal
  • public ←
Endpoint URL type to fetch from the service catalog.

aliases: endpoint_type
ironic_url
string
If noauth mode is utilized, this is required to be set to the endpoint URL for the Ironic API. Use with "auth" and "auth_type" settings set to None.
management_interface
string
The interface for out-of-band management of this node, e.g. "ipmitool".
name
string
unique name identifier to be given to the resource.
network_interface
string
The network interface provider to use when describing connections for this node.
nics
list / elements=dictionary / required
A list of network interface cards, eg, " - mac: aa:bb:cc:aa:bb:cc"
mac
string / required
The MAC address of the network interface card.
power_interface
string
The interface used to manage power actions on this node, e.g. "ipmitool".
properties
dictionary
Definition of the physical characteristics of this server, used for scheduling purposes
capabilities
string
Default:
""
special capabilities for the node, such as boot_option, node_role etc (see https://docs.openstack.org/ironic/latest/install/advanced.html for more information)
cpu_arch
string
Default:
"x86_64"
CPU architecture (x86_64, i686, ...)
cpus
string
Default:
1
Number of CPU cores this machine has
disk_size
string
Default:
1
size of first storage device in this machine (typically /dev/sda), in GB
ram
string
Default:
1
amount of RAM this machine has, in MB
root_device
string
Default:
""
Root disk device hints for deployment.
raid_interface
string
Interface used for configuring raid on this node.
region_name
string
Name of the region.
rescue_interface
string
Interface used for node rescue, e.g. "no-rescue".
resource_class
string
The specific resource type to which this node belongs.
skip_update_of_masked_password
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Allows the code that would assert changes to nodes to skip the update if the change is a single line consisting of the password field.
As of Kilo, by default, passwords are always masked to API requests, which means the logic as a result always attempts to re-assert the password field.
skip_update_of_driver_password is deprecated alias and will be removed in openstack.cloud 2.0.0.

aliases: skip_update_of_driver_password
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Indicates desired state of the resource
storage_interface
string
Interface used for attaching and detaching volumes on this node, e.g. "cinder".
timeout
integer
Default:
180
How long should ansible wait for the requested resource.
uuid
string
globally unique identifier (UUID) to be given to the resource. Will be auto-generated if not specified, and name is specified.
Definition of a UUID will always take precedence to a name value.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether or not SSL API requests should be verified.
Before Ansible 2.3 this defaulted to yes.

aliases: verify
vendor_interface
string
Interface for all vendor-specific actions on this node, e.g. "no-vendor".
wait
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Should ansible wait until the requested resource is complete.

Notes

Note

  • The standard OpenStack environment variables, such as OS_USERNAME may 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/
