cisco.aci.aci_l3out_extsubnet module – Manage External Subnet objects (l3extSubnet:extsubnet)

Note

This module is part of the cisco.aci collection (version 2.3.0).

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 cisco.aci.

To use it in a playbook, specify: cisco.aci.aci_l3out_extsubnet.

Synopsis

  • Manage External Subnet objects (l3extSubnet:extsubnet)

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

aggregate

list / elements=string

Determines the Aggregate Routes for the Subnet.

The export-rtctrl option to export all transit routes of a VRF (0/0 subnets).

The import-rtctrl option to import all incoming routes of given L3 peers (0/0 subnets).

The shared-rtctrl option to share routes learned in one VRF which needs to be advertised to another VRF. 0/0 can be used to share all subnet routes across multiple VRFs.

The import-rtctrl is only supported for BGP and OSPF.

Aggregate import route control is only available if the L3Out has ‘Import Route Control Enforcement’ enabled. Default this is disabled, cisco.aci.aci_l3out with route_control can be used to enable.

Choices:

  • "export-rtctrl"

  • "import-rtctrl"

  • "shared-rtctrl"

annotation

string

User-defined string for annotating an object.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ACI_ANNOTATION will be used instead.

If the value is not specified in the task and environment variable ACI_ANNOTATION then the default value will be used.

Default: "orchestrator:ansible"

certificate_name

aliases: cert_name

string

The X.509 certificate name attached to the APIC AAA user used for signature-based authentication.

If a private_key filename was provided, this defaults to the private_key basename, without extension.

If PEM-formatted content was provided for private_key, this defaults to the username value.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ACI_CERTIFICATE_NAME will be used instead.

description

aliases: descr

string

Description for the External Subnet.

extepg

aliases: extepg_name

string / required

Name of an existing ExtEpg.

host

aliases: hostname

string / required

Choices:

  • "debug"

  • "info"

  • "normal" ← (default)

output_path

Path to a file that will be used to dump the ACI JSON configuration objects generated by the module.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ACI_OUTPUT_PATH will be used instead.

password

string

The password to use for authentication.

This option is mutual exclusive with private_key. If private_key is provided too, it will be used instead.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variables ACI_PASSWORD or ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.

port

integer

Port number to be used for REST connection.

The default value depends on parameter use_ssl.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ACI_PORT will be used instead.

private_key

aliases: cert_key

string

Either a PEM-formatted private key file or the private key content used for signature-based authentication.

This value also influences the default certificate_name that is used.

This option is mutual exclusive with password. If password is provided too, it will be ignored.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ACI_PRIVATE_KEY or ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.

scope

list / elements=string

Determines the scope of the Subnet.

The export-rtctrl option controls which external networks are advertised out of the fabric using route-maps and IP prefix-lists.

The import-rtctrl option controls which external networks are advertised in to the fabric using route-maps and IP prefix-lists.

The import-security option classifies for the external EPG. The rules and contracts defined in this external EPG apply to networks matching this subnet.

The shared-rtctrl option controls which external prefixes are advertised to other tenants for shared services.

The shared-security option configures the classifier for the subnets in the VRF where the routes are leaked.

The APIC defaults to import-security when unset during creation.

The import-rtctrl is only supported for BGP and OSPF.

Choices:

  • "export-rtctrl"

  • "import-rtctrl"

  • "import-security"

  • "shared-rtctrl"

  • "shared-security"

state

string

Use present or absent for adding or removing.

Use query for listing an object or multiple objects.

Choices:

  • "absent"

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "query"

subnet_name

aliases: name

string

Name of External Subnet being created.

tenant

aliases: tenant_name

string / required

Name of an existing tenant.

timeout

integer

The socket level timeout in seconds.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ACI_TIMEOUT will be used instead.

Default: 30

use_proxy

boolean

If no, it will not use a proxy, even if one is defined in an environment variable on the target hosts.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ACI_USE_PROXY will be used instead.

Choices:

use_ssl

boolean

If no, an HTTP connection will be used instead of the default HTTPS connection.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ACI_USE_SSL will be used instead.
