arista.eos.eos_static_routes module – Static routes resource module

Note

This module is part of the arista.eos collection (version 6.0.0).

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_static_routes.

New in arista.eos 1.0.0

Synopsis

  • This module configures and manages the attributes of static routes on Arista EOS platforms.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A list of configurations for static routes.

address_families

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary specifying the address family to which the static route(s) belong.

afi

string / required

Specifies the top level address family indicator.

Choices:

  • "ipv4"

  • "ipv6"

routes

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary that specifies the static route configurations.

dest

string / required

Destination IPv4 subnet (CIDR or address-mask notation).

The address format is <v4/v6 address>/<mask> or <v4/v6 address> <mask>.

The mask is number in range 0-32 for IPv4 and in range 0-128 for IPv6.

next_hops

list / elements=dictionary

Details of route to be taken.

admin_distance

integer

Preference or administrative distance of route (range 1-255).

description

string

Name of the static route.

forward_router_address

string

Forwarding router’s address on destination interface.

interface

string

Outgoing interface to take. For anything except ‘null0’, then next hop IP address should also be configured.

IP address of the next hop router or

null0 Null0 interface or

ethernet e_num Ethernet interface or

loopback l_num Loopback interface or

management m_num Management interface or

port-channel p_num

vlan v_num

vxlan vx_num

Nexthop-Group Specify nexthop group name

Tunnel Tunnel interface

vtep Configure VXLAN Tunnel End Points

mpls_label

integer

MPLS label

nexthop_grp

string

Nexthop group

tag

integer

Route tag value (ranges from 0 to 4294967295).

track

string

Track value (range 1 - 512). Track must already be configured on the device before adding the route.

vrf

string

VRF of the destination.

vrf

string

The VRF to which the static route(s) belong.

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the EOS device by executing the command show running-config | grep routes.

The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into Ansible structured data as per the resource module’s argspec and the value is then returned in the parsed key within the result.

state

string

The state the configuration should be left in.

Choices:

  • "deleted"

  • "merged" ← (default)

  • "overridden"

  • "replaced"

  • "gathered"

  • "rendered"

  • "parsed"

Notes

Note

  • Tested against Arista EOS 4.24.6F

  • This module works with connection network_cli. See the EOS Platform Options.

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key

Description

after

list / elements=string

The resulting configuration model invocation.

Returned: when changed

Sample: ["The configuration returned will always be in the same format\n of the parameters above.\n"]

before

list / elements=string

The configuration prior to the model invocation.

Returned: always

Sample: ["The configuration returned will always be in the same format\n of the parameters above.\n"]

commands

list / elements=string

The set of commands pushed to the remote device.

Returned: always

Sample: ["ip route vrf vrf1 192.2.2.0/24 125.2.3.1 93"]

gathered

list / elements=string

The configuration as structured data transformed for the running configuration fetched from remote host

Returned: When state is gathered

Sample: ["The configuration returned will always be in the same format of the parameters above.\n"]

parsed

list / elements=string

The configuration as structured data transformed for the value of running_config option

Returned: When state is parsed

Sample: ["The configuration returned will always be in the same format of the parameters above.\n"]

rendered

list / elements=string

The set of CLI commands generated from the value in config option

Returned: When state is rendered
