Parameters

Parameter

Comments

ad_user

string

Active Directory username. Use when authenticating with an Active Directory user rather than service principal.

adfs_authority_url

string

added in 0.0.1 of azure.azcollection

Azure AD authority url. Use when authenticating with Username/password, and has your own ADFS authority.

api_profile

string

added in 0.0.1 of azure.azcollection

Selects an API profile to use when communicating with Azure services. Default value of latest is appropriate for public clouds; future values will allow use with Azure Stack.

Default: “latest”

auth_source

string

added in 0.0.1 of azure.azcollection

Controls the source of the credentials to use for authentication.

Can also be set via the ANSIBLE_AZURE_AUTH_SOURCE environment variable.

When set to auto (the default) the precedence is module parameters -> env -> credential_file -> cli.

When set to env, the credentials will be read from the environment variables

When set to credential_file, it will read the profile from ~/.azure/credentials.

When set to cli, the credentials will be sources from the Azure CLI profile. subscription_id or the environment variable AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID can be used to identify the subscription ID if more than one is present otherwise the default az cli subscription is used.

When set to msi, the host machine must be an azure resource with an enabled MSI extension. subscription_id or the environment variable AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID can be used to identify the subscription ID if the resource is granted access to more than one subscription, otherwise the first subscription is chosen.

The msi was added in Ansible 2.6.

Choices:

  • auto ← (default)

  • cli

  • credential_file

  • env

  • msi

cert_validation_mode

string

added in 0.0.1 of azure.azcollection

Controls the certificate validation behavior for Azure endpoints. By default, all modules will validate the server certificate, but when an HTTPS proxy is in use, or against Azure Stack, it may be necessary to disable this behavior by passing ignore. Can also be set via credential file profile or the AZURE_CERT_VALIDATION environment variable.

Choices:

  • ignore

  • validate

client_id

string

Azure client ID. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.

cloud_environment

string

added in 0.0.1 of azure.azcollection

For cloud environments other than the US public cloud, the environment name (as defined by Azure Python SDK, eg, AzureChinaCloud, AzureUSGovernment), or a metadata discovery endpoint URL (required for Azure Stack). Can also be set via credential file profile or the AZURE_CLOUD_ENVIRONMENT environment variable.

Default: “AzureCloud”

log_mode

string

Parent argument.

log_path

string

Parent argument.

name

string

Only show results for a specific account.

password

string

Active Directory user password. Use when authenticating with an Active Directory user rather than service principal.

profile

string

Security profile found in ~/.azure/credentials file.

resource_group

aliases: resource_group_name

string

Limit results to a resource group. Required when filtering by name.

secret

string

Azure client secret. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.

show_blob_cors

boolean

Show the blob CORS settings for each blob related to the storage account.

Querying all storage accounts will take a long time.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

show_connection_string

boolean

Show the connection string for each of the storageaccount’s endpoints.

For convenient usage, show_connection_string will also show the access keys for each of the storageaccount’s endpoints.

Note that it will cost a lot of time when list all storageaccount rather than query a single one.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

subscription_id

string

Your Azure subscription Id.

tags

string

Limit results by providing a list of tags. Format tags as ‘key’ or ‘key:value’.

tenant

string

Azure tenant ID. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.

Notes

Note

  • For authentication with Azure you can pass parameters, set environment variables, use a profile stored in ~/.azure/credentials, or log in before you run your tasks or playbook with az login.

  • Authentication is also possible using a service principal or Active Directory user.

  • To authenticate via service principal, pass subscription_id, client_id, secret and tenant or set environment variables AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID, AZURE_CLIENT_ID, AZURE_SECRET and AZURE_TENANT.

  • To authenticate via Active Directory user, pass ad_user and password, or set AZURE_AD_USER and AZURE_PASSWORD in the environment.

  • Alternatively, credentials can be stored in ~/.azure/credentials. This is an ini file containing a [default] section and the following keys: subscription_id, client_id, secret and tenant or subscription_id, ad_user and password. It is also possible to add additional profiles. Specify the profile by passing profile or setting AZURE_PROFILE in the environment.
