  • protocol
  • security
  • service
  • user
The object group type.
running_config
string
The module, by default, will connect to the remote device and retrieve the current running-config to use as a base for comparing against the contents of source. There are times when it is not desirable to have the task get the current running-config for every task in a playbook. The running_config argument allows the implementer to pass in the configuration to use as the base config for comparison. This value of this option should be the output received from device by executing command.
state
string
    Choices:
  • merged ←
  • replaced
  • overridden
  • deleted
  • gathered
  • rendered
  • parsed
The state the configuration should be left in

Notes

Note

  • Tested against Cisco ASA Version 9.10(1)11

  • This module works with connection network_cli. See ASA Platform Options.
