Synopsis

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aggregate
list / elements=dictionary
List of VLANs definitions.
associated_interfaces
list / elements=string
This is a intent option and checks the operational state of the for given vlan name for associated interfaces. The name of interface is case sensitive and should be in expanded format and not abbreviated. If the value in the associated_interfaces does not match with the operational state of vlan interfaces on device it will result in failure.
delay
integer
Default:
10
Delay the play should wait to check for declarative intent params values.
interfaces
list / elements=string
List of interfaces that should be associated to the VLAN. The name of interface is case sensitive and should be in expanded format and not abbreviated.
name
string
Name of the VLAN.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • active
  • suspend
State of the VLAN configuration.
vlan_id
integer / required
ID of the VLAN.
associated_interfaces
list / elements=string
This is a intent option and checks the operational state of the for given vlan name for associated interfaces. The name of interface is case sensitive and should be in expanded format and not abbreviated. If the value in the associated_interfaces does not match with the operational state of vlan interfaces on device it will result in failure.
delay
integer
Default:
10
Delay the play should wait to check for declarative intent params values.
interfaces
list / elements=string
List of interfaces that should be associated to the VLAN. The name of interface is case sensitive and should be in expanded format and not abbreviated.
name
string
Name of the VLAN.
provider
dictionary
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.
Starting with Ansible 2.6 we recommend using connection: httpapi for eAPI.
This option will be removed in a release after 2022-06-01.
For more information please see the EOS Platform Options guide.

A dict object containing connection details.
auth_pass
string
Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTH_PASS will be used instead.
authorize
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTHORIZE will be used instead.
host
string
Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.
password
string
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This is a common argument used for either cli or eapi transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
integer
Default:
0
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. This value applies to either cli or eapi.
The port value will default to the appropriate transport common port if none is provided in the task (cli=22, http=80, https=443).
ssh_keyfile
path
Specifies the SSH keyfile to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This argument is only used for cli transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
timeout
integer
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.
transport
string
    Choices:
  • cli ←
  • eapi
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device.
use_proxy
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy will be ignored.
use_ssl
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Configures the transport to use SSL if set to yes only when the transport=eapi. If the transport argument is not eapi, this value is ignored.
username
string
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate either the CLI login or the eAPI authentication depending on which transport is used. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, SSL certificates will not be validated. This should only be used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates. If the transport argument is not eapi, this value is ignored.
purge
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Purge VLANs not defined in the aggregate parameter.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • active
  • suspend
State of the VLAN configuration.
vlan_id
integer
ID of the VLAN.
