certificate_name
The X.509 certificate name attached to the APIC AAA user used for signature-based authentication.

  • vpc
The type of interface for the static EPG deployement.
leaf_interface_profile
required
The name of the Fabric access policy leaf interface profile.

aliases: leaf_interface_profile_name
leaf_port_blk
required
The name of the Fabric access policy leaf interface profile access port block.

aliases: leaf_port_blk_name

policy_group
The name of the fabric access policy group to be associated with the leaf interface profile interface selector.

aliases: policy_group_name
port
Port number to be used for REST connection.
The default value depends on parameter `use_ssl`.
private_key
required
PEM formatted file that contains your private key to be used for signature-based authentication.
The name of the key (without extension) is used as the certificate name in ACI, unless certificate_name is specified.
This option is mutual exclusive with password. If password is provided too, it will be ignored.

aliases: cert_key
state

use_proxy
bool
    Choices:
