Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of VLANs on VyOS network devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

address

string

Configure Virtual interface address.

aggregate

list / elements=dictionary

List of VLANs definitions.

address

string

Configure Virtual interface address.

associated_interfaces

list / elements=string

This is a intent option and checks the operational state of the for given vlan name for associated interfaces. If the value in the associated_interfaces does not match with the operational state of vlan on device it will result in failure.

delay

integer

Delay the play should wait to check for declarative intent params values.

interfaces

list / elements=string / required

List of interfaces that should be associated to the VLAN.

name

string

Name of the VLAN.

state

string

State of the VLAN configuration.

Choices:

  • present

  • absent

vlan_id

integer / required

ID of the VLAN. Range 0-4094.

associated_interfaces

list / elements=string

This is a intent option and checks the operational state of the for given vlan name for associated interfaces. If the value in the associated_interfaces does not match with the operational state of vlan on device it will result in failure.

delay

integer

Delay the play should wait to check for declarative intent params values.

Default: 10

interfaces

list / elements=string

List of interfaces that should be associated to the VLAN.

name

string

Name of the VLAN.

provider

dictionary

Deprecated

Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.

For more information please see the Network Guide.


A dict object containing connection details.

host

string

Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.

password

string

Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.

port

integer

Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device.

ssh_keyfile

path

Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is the path to the key used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.

timeout

integer

Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.

username

string

Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.

purge

boolean

Purge VLANs not defined in the aggregate parameter.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

state

string

State of the VLAN configuration.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

vlan_id

integer

ID of the VLAN. Range 0-4094.
