Parameters

Parameter

Comments

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"

ap

aliases: app_profile, app_profile_name

string

Name of an existing application network profile, that will contain the EPGs.

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.

deploy_immediacy

string

The Deployment Immediacy of Static EPG on PC, VPC or Interface.

The APIC defaults to lazy when unset during creation.

Choices:

  • "immediate"

  • "lazy"

description

aliases: descr

string

Description for the static path to EPG binding.

encap_id

aliases: vlan, vlan_id

integer

The encapsulation ID associating the epg with the interface path.

This acts as the secondary encap_id when using micro-segmentation.

Accepted values are any valid encap ID for specified encap, currently ranges between 1 and 4096.

epg

aliases: epg_name

string

The name of the end point group.

extpaths

list / elements=string

The extpaths integer value part of the tDn.

extpaths is only used if interface_type is fex, fex_vpc or fex_port_channel.

When interface_type is fex_vpc, then extpaths is a list with both fex IDs.

Usually something like 1011.

host

aliases: hostname

string / required

IP Address or hostname of APIC resolvable by Ansible control host.

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

interface

string

The interface string value part of the tDn.

Usually a policy group like test-IntPolGrp or an interface of the following format 1/7 depending on interface_type.

interface_mode

aliases: interface_mode_name, mode

string

Determines how layer 2 tags will be read from and added to frames.

Values 802.1p and native are identical.

Values access and untagged are identical.

Values regular, tagged and trunk are identical.

The APIC defaults to trunk when unset during creation.

Choices:

  • "802.1p"

  • "access"

  • "native"

  • "regular"

  • "tagged"

  • "trunk"

  • "untagged"

  • "switch_port" ← (default)

  • "vpc"

  • "fex_port_channel"

  • "fex_vpc"

leafs

aliases: leaves, nodes, paths, switches

list / elements=string

The switch ID(s) that the interface belongs to.

When interface_type is switch_port, port_channel, or fex, then leafs is a string of the leaf ID.

When interface_type is vpc, then leafs is a list with both leaf IDs.

The leafs value is usually something like ‘101’ or ‘101-102’ depending on connection_type.

output_level

string

Influence the output of this ACI module.

normal means the standard output, incl. current dict

info adds informational output, incl. previous, proposed and sent dicts

debug adds debugging output, incl. filter_string, method, response, status and url information

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

Choices:

  • "debug"

  • "info"

  • "normal" ← (default)

output_path

string

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.

pod_id

aliases: pod, pod_number

integer

The pod number part of the tDn.

pod_id is usually an integer below 10.

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.

primary_encap_id

aliases: primary_vlan, primary_vlan_id

string

Determines the primary encapsulation ID associating the epg with the interface path when using micro-segmentation.

ERROR while parsing Accepted values are any valid encap ID for specified encap, currently ranges between C(1) and C(4096) and C(unknown.: Cannot find “)” closing after the last parameter for command “C” starting at index 106 in ‘Accepted values are any valid encap ID for specified encap, currently ranges between C(1) and C(4096) and C(unknown.’

unknown is the default value and using unknown disables the Micro-Segmentation.

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.

state

string

Use present or absent for adding or removing.

Use query for listing an object or multiple objects.

Choices:

  • "absent"

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "query"

tenant

aliases: tenant_name

string

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:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

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.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

username

aliases: user

string

The username to use for authentication.

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

Default: "admin"

validate_certs

boolean

If no, SSL certificates will not be validated.

This should only set to no when used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.

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

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)
