Default:
443
The BIG-IP server port.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_SERVER_PORT.

You may omit this option by setting the environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE.
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.
transport
string
    Choices:
  • cli
  • rest ←
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device.
user
string / required
The username to connect to the BIG-IP with. This user must have administrative privileges on the device.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_USER.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, SSL certificates are not validated. Use this only on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_VALIDATE_CERTS.
snat_pool
string
Specifies the name of a SNAT pool used for implementing selective and intelligent SNATs.
When none the system uses no SNAT pool for this network resource.
When automap the system uses all of the self IP addresses as the translation addresses for the pool.
split_tunnel
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Specifies that only the traffic targeted to a specified address space is sent over the network access tunnel.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
When state is present, ensures that the ACL exists.
When state is absent, ensures that the ACL is removed.

Notes

Note

  • For more information on using Ansible to manage F5 Networks devices see https://www.ansible.com/integrations/networks/f5.
  • Requires BIG-IP software version >= 12.
  • The F5 modules only manipulate the running configuration of the F5 product. To ensure that BIG-IP specific configuration persists to disk, be sure to include at least one task that uses the bigip_config module to save the running configuration. Refer to the module’s documentation for the correct usage of the module to save your running configuration.
