arista.eos.eos_acl_interfaces module – ACL interfaces resource module

Note

This module is part of the arista.eos collection (version 5.0.1).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install arista.eos.

To use it in a playbook, specify: arista.eos.eos_acl_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of arista.eos

Synopsis

  • This module manages adding and removing Access Control Lists (ACLs) from interfaces on devices running EOS software.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of ACL options for interfaces.

access_groups

list / elements=dictionary

Specifies ACLs attached to the interfaces.

acls

list / elements=dictionary

Specifies the ACLs for the provided AFI.

direction

string / required

Specifies the direction of packets that the ACL will be applied on.

Choices:

  • in

  • out

name

string / required

Specifies the name of the IPv4/IPv4 ACL for the interface.

afi

string / required

Specifies the AFI for the ACL(s) to be configured on this interface.

Choices:

  • ipv4

  • ipv6

name

string / required

Name/Identifier for the interface.

running_config

string

The module, by default, will connect to the remote device and retrieve the current running-config to use as a base for comparing against the contents of source. There are times when it is not desirable to have the task get the current running-config for every task in a playbook. The running_config argument allows the implementer to pass in the configuration to use as the base config for comparison. This value of this option should be the output received from device by executing command

state

string

The state the configuration should be left in.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • gathered

  • parsed

  • rendered
