Default value is false when creating a new VPC.

Choices:

  • false

multi_ok

boolean

By default the module will not create another VPC if there is another VPC with the same name and CIDR block. Specify multi_ok=true if you want duplicate VPCs created.

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

name

string

The name to give your VPC. This is used in combination with cidr_block to determine if a VPC already exists.

The value of name overrides any value set for Name in the tags parameter.

At least one of name and vpc_id must be specified.

name must be specified when creating a new VPC.

profile

aliases: aws_profile

Notes

Note

  • Caution: Environment variables and configuration files are read from the Ansible ‘host’ context and not the ‘controller’ context. Files may need to be explicitly copied to the ‘host’.

  • The AWS SDK (boto3) that Ansible uses may also read defaults for credentials and other settings, such as the region, from its configuration files in the Ansible ‘host’ context (typically ~/.aws/credentials). See https://boto3.amazonaws.com/v1/documentation/api/latest/guide/credentials.html for more information.
