netapp_e_ldap – NetApp E-Series manage LDAP integration to use for authentication

New in version 2.7.

Synopsis

  • Configure an E-Series system to allow authentication via an LDAP server

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_password
- / required
The password to authenticate with the SANtricity Web Services Proxy or Embedded Web Services API.
api_url
- / required
The url to the SANtricity Web Services Proxy or Embedded Web Services API. Example https://prod-1.wahoo.acme.com/devmgr/v2
api_username
- / required
The username to authenticate with the SANtricity Web Services Proxy or Embedded Web Services API.
attributes
-
Default:
"memberOf"
The user attributes that should be considered for the group to role mapping.
Typically this is used with something like 'memberOf', and a user's access is tested against group membership or lack thereof.
identifier
-
This is a unique identifier for the configuration (for cases where there are multiple domains configured).
If this is not specified, but state=present, we will utilize a default value of 'default'.
log_path
-
A local path to a file to be used for debug logging
name
-
The domain name[s] that will be utilized when authenticating to identify which domain to utilize.
Default to use the DNS name of the server.
The only requirement is that the name[s] be resolvable.
password
- / required
This is the password for the bind user account.

aliases: bind_password
role_mappings
- / required
This is where you specify which groups should have access to what permissions for the storage-system.
For example, all users in group A will be assigned all 4 available roles, which will allow access to all the management functionality of the system (super-user). Those in group B only have the storage.monitor role, which will allow only read-only acess.
This is specified as a mapping of regular expressions to a list of roles. See the examples.
The roles that will be assigned to to the group/groups matching the provided regex.
storage.admin allows users full read/write access to storage objects and operations.
storage.monitor allows users read-only access to storage objects and operations.
support.admin allows users access to hardware, diagnostic information, the Major Event Log, and other critical support-related functionality, but not the storage configuration.
security.admin allows users access to authentication/authorization configuration, as well as the audit log configuration, and certification management.
search_base
- / required
The search base is used to find group memberships of the user.
Example: ou=users,dc=example,dc=com
server
- / required
This is the LDAP server url.
The connection string should be specified as using the ldap or ldaps protocol along with the port information.

aliases: server_url
ssid
-
Default:
1
The ID of the array to manage. This value must be unique for each array.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Enable/disable LDAP support on the system. Disabling will clear out any existing defined domains.
user_attribute
-
Default:
"sAMAccountName"
This is the attribute we will use to match the provided username when a user attempts to authenticate.
username
- / required
This is the user account that will be used for querying the LDAP server.
Example: CN=MyBindAcct,OU=ServiceAccounts,DC=example,DC=com

aliases: bind_username
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Should https certificates be validated?

Notes

Note

  • Check mode is supported.
  • This module allows you to define one or more LDAP domains identified uniquely by identifier to use for authentication. Authorization is determined by role_mappings, in that different groups of users may be given different (or no), access to certain aspects of the system and API.
  • The local user accounts will still be available if the LDAP server becomes unavailable/inaccessible.
  • Generally, you’ll need to get the details of your organization’s LDAP server before you’ll be able to configure the system for using LDAP authentication; every implementation is likely to be very different.
  • This API is currently only supported with the Embedded Web Services API v2.0 and higher, or the Web Services Proxy v3.0 and higher.
  • The E-Series Ansible modules require either an instance of the Web Services Proxy (WSP), to be available to manage the storage-system, or an E-Series storage-system that supports the Embedded Web Services API.
  • Embedded Web Services is currently available on the E2800, E5700, EF570, and newer hardware models.
  • netapp_e_storage_system may be utilized for configuring the systems managed by a WSP instance.
