Ansible 2.10 Porting Guide

Warning

In Ansible 2.10, many plugins and modules have migrated to Collections on Ansible Galaxy. Your playbooks should continue to work without any changes. We recommend you start using the fully-qualified collection name (FQCN) in your playbooks as the explicit and authoritative indicator of which collection to use as some collections may contain duplicate module names.

This section discusses the behavioral changes between Ansible 2.9 and Ansible 2.10.

It is intended to assist in updating your playbooks, plugins and other parts of your Ansible infrastructure so they will work with this version of Ansible.

We suggest you read this page along with the Ansible Changelog for 2.10 to understand what updates you may need to make.

Since 2.10, Ansible consists of two parts:

  • ansible-base, which includes the command line tools with a small selection of plugins and modules, and

  • a set of collections.

The Ansible-base 2.10 Porting Guide is included in this porting guide. The complete list of porting guides can be found at porting guides.

Playbook

  • Fixed a bug on boolean keywords that made random strings return ‘False’, now they should return an error if they are not a proper boolean Example: diff: yes- was returning False.

  • A new fact, ansible_processor_nproc reflects the number of vcpus available to processes (falls back to the number of vcpus available to the scheduler).

Command Line

No notable changes

Deprecated

Modules

Warning

Links on this page may not point to the most recent versions of modules. We will update them when we can.

  • Version 2.10.0 of ansible-base changed the default mode of file-based tasks to 0o600 & ~umask when the user did not specify a mode parameter on file-based tasks. This was in response to a CVE report which we have reconsidered. As a result, the mode change has been reverted in 2.10.1, and mode will now default to 0o666 & ~umask as in previous versions of Ansible.

  • If you changed any tasks to specify less restrictive permissions while using 2.10.0, those changes will be unnecessary (but will do no harm) in 2.10.1.

  • To avoid the issue raised in CVE-2020-1736, specify a mode parameter in all file-based tasks that accept it.

  • dnf and yum - As of version 2.10.1, the dnf module (and yum action when it uses dnf) now correctly validates GPG signatures of packages (CVE-2020-14365). If you see an error such as Failed to validate GPG signature for [package name], please ensure that you have imported the correct GPG key for the DNF repository and/or package you are using. One way to do this is with the rpm_key module. Although we discourage it, in some cases it may be necessary to disable the GPG check. This can be done by explicitly adding disable_gpg_check: yes in your dnf or yum task.

Noteworthy module changes

  • Ansible modules created with add_file_common_args=True added a number of undocumented arguments which were mostly there to ease implementing certain action plugins. The undocumented arguments src, follow, force, content, backup, remote_src, regexp, delimiter, and directory_mode are now no longer added. Modules relying on these options to be added need to specify them by themselves.

  • Ansible no longer looks for Python modules in the current working directory (typically the remote_user’s home directory) when an Ansible module is run. This is to fix becoming an unprivileged user on OpenBSD and to mitigate any attack vector if the current working directory is writable by a malicious user. Install any Python modules needed to run the Ansible modules on the managed node in a system-wide location or in another directory which is in the remote_user’s $PYTHONPATH and readable by the become_user.

Plugins

Lookup plugin names case-sensitivity

  • Prior to Ansible 2.10 lookup plugin names passed in as an argument to the lookup() function were treated as case-insensitive as opposed to lookups invoked via with_<lookup_name>. 2.10 brings consistency to lookup() and with_ to be both case-sensitive.

Noteworthy plugin changes

  • Cache plugins in collections can be used to cache data from inventory plugins. Previously, cache plugins in collections could only be used for fact caching.

  • Some undocumented arguments from FILE_COMMON_ARGUMENTS have been removed; plugins using these, in particular action plugins, need to be adjusted. The undocumented arguments which were removed are src, follow, force, content, backup, remote_src, regexp, delimiter, and directory_mode.

Action plugins which execute modules should use fully-qualified module names

  • Action plugins that call modules should pass explicit, fully-qualified module names to _execute_module() whenever possible (eg, ansible.builtin.file rather than file). This ensures that the task’s collection search order is not consulted to resolve the module. Otherwise, a module from a collection earlier in the search path could be used when not intended.

Major Changes

community.kubernetes

Deprecated Features

cisco.nxos

  • Deprecated nxos_smu in favour of nxos_rpm module.

  • The nxos_ospf_vrf module is deprecated by nxos_ospfv2 and nxos_ospfv3 Resource Modules.

Porting Guide for v2.10.0

Known Issues

  • Due to a limitation in pip, you cannot pip install --upgrade from ansible-2.9 or earlier to ansible-2.10 or higher. Instead, you must explicitly use pip uninstall ansible before pip installing the new version. If you attempt to upgrade Ansible with pip without first uninstalling, the installer warns you to uninstall first.

  • The individual collections that make up the ansible-2.10.0 package can be viewed independently. However, they are not currently listed by ansible-galaxy. To view these collections with ansible-galaxy, explicitly specify where ansible has installed the collections – COLLECTION_INSTALL=$(python -c 'import ansible, os.path ; print("%s/../ansible_collections" % os.path.dirname(ansible.__file__))') ansible-galaxy collection list -p "$COLLECTION_INSTALL".

  • These fortios modules are not automatically redirected from their 2.9.x names to the new 2.10.x names within collections. You must modify your playbooks to use fully qualified collection names for them. You can use the documentation (https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/2.10/collections/fortinet/fortios/) for the fortinet.fortios collection to determine what the fully qualified collection names are.

community.grafana

  • grafana_datasource doesn’t set password correctly (#113)

Breaking Changes

  • cisco.nxos.nxos_igmp_interface - no longer supports the deprecated oif_prefix and oif_source options. These have been superceeded by oif_ps.

  • community.grafana.grafana_dashboard - the parameter message is renamed to commit_message since message is used by Ansible Core engine internally.

  • purestorage.flashblade.purefb_fs - no longer supports the deprecated nfs option. This has been superceeded by nfsv3.

amazon.aws

  • aws_s3 - can now delete versioned buckets even when they are not empty - set mode to delete to delete a versioned bucket and everything in it.

ansible.windows

  • setup - Make sure ansible_date_time.epoch is seconds since EPOCH in UTC to mirror the POSIX facts. The ansible_date_time.epoch_local contains seconds since EPOCH in the local timezone for backwards compatibility

  • setup - Will now add the IPv6 scope on link local addresses for ansible_ip_addresses

  • setup - ansible_processor will now return the index before the other values to match the POSIX fact behaviour

  • win_find - No longer filters by size on directories, this feature had a lot of bugs, slowed down the module, and not a supported scenario with the find module.

  • win_find - module has been refactored to better match the behaviour of the find module. Here is what has changed:
    • When the directory specified by paths does not exist or is a file, it will no longer fail and will just warn the user

    • Junction points are no longer reported as islnk, use isjunction to properly report these files. This behaviour matches the win_stat module

    • Directories no longer return a size, this matches the stat and find behaviour and has been removed due to the difficulties in correctly reporting the size of a directory

  • win_user - Change idempotency checks for description to be case sensitive

  • win_user - Change idempotency checks for fullname to be case sensitive

cisco.meraki

  • meraki_device - Changed tags from string to list

  • meraki_device - Removed serial_lldp_cdp parameter

  • meraki_device - Removed serial_uplink parameter

  • meraki_intrusion_prevention - Rename whitedlisted_rules to allowed_rules

  • meraki_mx_l3_firewall - Rule responses are now in a rules list

  • meraki_mx_l7_firewall - Rename blacklisted_countries to blocked_countries

  • meraki_mx_l7_firewall - Rename whitelisted_countries to allowed_countries

  • meraki_network - Local and remote status page settings cannot be set during network creation

  • meraki_network - disableRemoteStatusPage response is now remote_status_page_enabled

  • meraki_network - disable_my_meraki_com response is now local_status_page_enabled

  • meraki_network - disable_my_meraki has been deprecated

  • meraki_network - enable_my_meraki is now called local_status_page_enabled

  • meraki_network - enable_remote_status_page is now called remote_status_page_enabled

  • meraki_network - enabled response for VLAN status is now vlans_enabled

  • meraki_network - tags and type now return a list

  • meraki_snmp - peer_ips is now a list

  • meraki_switchport - access_policy_number is now an int and not a string

  • meraki_switchport - tags is now a list and not a string

  • meraki_webhook - Querying test status now uses state of query.

community.general

  • The environment variable for the auth context for the oc.py connection plugin has been corrected (K8S_CONTEXT). It was using an initial lowercase k by mistake. (https://github.com/ansible-collections/community.general/pull/377).

  • bigpanda - the parameter message was renamed to deployment_message since message is used by Ansible Core engine internally.

  • cisco_spark - the module option message was renamed to msg, as message is used internally in Ansible Core engine (https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues/39295)

  • datadog - the parameter message was renamed to notification_message since message is used by Ansible Core engine internally.

  • docker_container - no longer passes information on non-anonymous volumes or binds as Volumes to the Docker daemon. This increases compatibility with the docker CLI program. Note that if you specify volumes: strict in comparisons, this could cause existing containers created with docker_container from Ansible 2.9 or earlier to restart.

  • docker_container - support for port ranges was adjusted to be more compatible to the docker command line utility: a one-port container range combined with a multiple-port host range will no longer result in only the first host port be used, but the whole range being passed to Docker so that a free port in that range will be used.

  • hashi_vault lookup - now returns the latest version when using the KV v2 secrets engine. Previously, it returned all versions of the secret which required additional steps to extract and filter the desired version.

  • log_plays callback - add missing information to the logs generated by the callback plugin. This changes the log message format (https://github.com/ansible-collections/community.general/pull/442).

  • pkgng - passing name: * with state: absent will no longer remove every installed package from the system. It is now a noop. (https://github.com/ansible-collections/community.general/pull/569).

  • pkgng - passing name: * with state: latest or state: present will no longer install every package from the configured package repositories. Instead, name: *, state: latest will upgrade all already-installed packages, and name: *, state: present is a noop. (https://github.com/ansible-collections/community.general/pull/569).

community.network

community.vmware

  • vmware_datastore_maintenancemode - now returns datastore_status instead of Ansible internal key results.

  • vmware_guest_custom_attributes - does not require VM name which was a required parameter for releases prior to Ansible 2.10.

  • vmware_guest_find - the datacenter option has been removed.

  • vmware_host_kernel_manager - now returns host_kernel_status instead of Ansible internal key results.

  • vmware_host_ntp - now returns host_ntp_status instead of Ansible internal key results.

  • vmware_host_service_manager - now returns host_service_status instead of Ansible internal key results.

  • vmware_tag - now returns tag_status instead of Ansible internal key results.

  • vmware_vmkernel - the options ip_address and subnet_mask have been removed; use the suboptions ip_address and subnet_mask of the network option instead.

community.windows

  • win_pester - no longer runs all *.ps1 file in the directory specified due to it executing potentially unknown scripts. It will follow the default behaviour of only running tests for files that are like *.tests.ps1 which is built into Pester itself.

community.zabbix

  • zabbix_javagateway - options javagateway_pidfile, javagateway_listenip, javagateway_listenport and javagateway_startpollers renamed to zabbix_javagateway_xyz (see UPGRADE.md).

netbox.netbox

  • Change ip-addresses key in netbox inventory plugin to ip_addresses (https://github.com/netbox-community/ansible_modules/issues/139)

  • Changed group to tenant_group in netbox_tenant.py (https://github.com/netbox-community/ansible_modules/issues/9)

  • Changed role to prefix_role in netbox_prefix.py (https://github.com/netbox-community/ansible_modules/issues/9)

  • Module failures when required fields arent provided (https://github.com/netbox-community/ansible_modules/issues/24)

  • Renamed netbox_interface to netbox_device_interface (https://github.com/netbox-community/ansible_modules/issues/9)

  • This version has a few breaking changes due to new namespace and collection name. I felt it necessary to change the name of the lookup plugin and inventory plugin just not to have a non descriptive namespace call to use them. Below is an example: netbox.netbox.netbox would be used for both inventory plugin and lookup plugin, but in different contexts so no collision will arise, but confusion will. I renamed the lookup plugin to nb_lookup so it will be used with the FQCN netbox.netbox.nb_lookup. The inventory plugin will now be called within an inventory file by netbox.netbox.nb_inventory

  • To pass in integers via Ansible Jinja filters for a key in data that requires querying an endpoint is now done by making it a dictionary with an id key. The previous behavior was to just pass in an integer and it was converted when normalizing the data, but some people may have names that are all integers and those were being converted erroneously so we made the decision to change the method to convert to an integer for the NetBox API.

    tasks:
      - name: Create device within NetBox with only required information
        netbox_device:
          netbox_url: http://netbox-demo.org:32768
          netbox_token: 0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef01234567
          data:
            name: Test66
            device_type:
              id: "{{ some_jinja_variable }}"
            device_role: Core Switch
            site: Test Site
            status: Staged
          state: present
    
  • pynetbox changed to using requests.Session() to manage the HTTP session which broke passing in ssl_verify when building the NetBox API client. This PR makes pynetbox 5.0.4+ the new required version of pynetbox for the Ansible modules and lookup plugin. (https://github.com/netbox-community/ansible_modules/pull/269)

theforeman.foreman

  • All modules were renamed to drop the foreman_ and katello_ prefixes. Additionally to the prefix removal, the following modules were further ranamed:

    • katello_upload to content_upload

    • katello_sync to repository_sync

    • katello_manifest to subscription_manifest

    • foreman_search_facts to resource_info

    • foreman_ptable to partition_table

    • foreman_model to hardware_model

    • foreman_environment to puppet_environment

Major Changes

Ansible-base

  • Both ansible-doc and ansible-console’s help command will error for modules and plugins whose return documentation cannot be parsed as YAML. All modules and plugins passing ansible-test sanity --test yamllint will not be affected by this.

  • Collections may declare a list of supported/tested Ansible versions for the collection. A warning is issued if a collection does not support the Ansible version that loads it (can also be configured as silent or a fatal error). Collections that do not declare supported Ansible versions do not issue a warning/error.

  • Plugin routing allows collections to declare deprecation, redirection targets, and removals for all plugin types.

  • Plugins that import module_utils and other ansible namespaces that have moved to collections should continue to work unmodified.

  • Routing data built into Ansible 2.10 ensures that 2.9 content should work unmodified on 2.10. Formerly included modules and plugins that were moved to collections are still accessible by their original unqualified names, so long as their destination collections are installed.

  • When deprecations are done in code, they to specify a collection_name so that deprecation warnings can mention which collection - or ansible-base - is deprecating a feature. This affects all Display.deprecated() or AnsibleModule.deprecate() or Ansible.Basic.Deprecate() calls, and removed_in_version/removed_at_date or deprecated_aliases in module argument specs.

  • ansible-test now uses a different default test container for Ansible Collections

amazon.aws

  • ec2 module_utils - The AWSRetry decorator no longer catches NotFound exceptions by default. NotFound exceptions need to be explicitly added using catch_extra_error_codes. Some AWS modules may see an increase in transient failures due to AWS’’s eventual consistency model.

  • meraki_mr_settings - Configure network settings for wireless.

  • meraki_ms_l3_interface - New module

  • meraki_ms_ospf - Configure OSPF.

community.general

  • docker_container - the network_mode option will be set by default to the name of the first network in networks if at least one network is given and networks_cli_compatible is true (will be default from community.general 2.0.0 on). Set to an explicit value to avoid deprecation warnings if you specify networks and set networks_cli_compatible to true. The current default (not specifying it) is equivalent to the value default.

  • docker_container - the module has a new option, container_default_behavior, whose default value will change from compatibility to no_defaults. Set to an explicit value to avoid deprecation warnings.

  • gitlab_user - no longer requires name, email and password arguments when state=absent.
