Comments

always_update_password

string

Since passwords are not returned by the API and are encrypted on the endpoint, this option will instruct the module when to change the password.

If true, the password for each user will always be updated in the policy.

If false, the password will be updated only if the user is created.

Default: false

If not set, the value of the INTERSIGHT_API_KEY_ID environment variable is used.

Filename (absolute path) or string of PEM formatted private key data to be used for Intersight API authentication.

If a string is used, Ansible vault should be used to encrypt string data.

<your private key data>

—–END EC PRIVATE KEY—–’

If not set, the value of the INTERSIGHT_API_PRIVATE_KEY environment variable is used.
