cisco.ios.ios_acl_interfaces module – Resource module to configure ACL interfaces.

Note

This module is part of the cisco.ios collection (version 3.3.1).

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.ios.

To use it in a playbook, specify: cisco.ios.ios_acl_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.ios

Synopsis

  • This module configures and manages the access-control (ACL) attributes of interfaces on IOS platforms.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of ACL interfaces options

access_groups

list / elements=dictionary

Specify access-group for IP access list (standard or extended).

acls

list / elements=dictionary

Specifies the ACLs for the provided AFI.

direction

string / required

Specifies the direction of packets that the ACL will be applied on.

With one direction already assigned, other acl direction cannot be same.

Choices:

  • in

  • out

name

string / required

Specifies the name of the IPv4/IPv4 ACL for the interface.

afi

string / required

Specifies the AFI for the ACLs to be configured on this interface.

Choices:

  • ipv4

  • ipv6

name

string / required

Full name of the interface excluding any logical unit number, i.e. GigabitEthernet0/1.

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

The state the configuration should be left in

The states rendered, gathered and parsed does not perform any change on the device.

The state rendered will transform the configuration in config option to platform specific CLI commands which will be returned in the rendered key within the result. For state rendered active connection to remote host is not required.

The state gathered will fetch the running configuration from device and transform it into structured data in the format as per the resource module argspec and the value is returned in the gathered key within the result.

The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into JSON format as per the resource module parameters and the value is returned in the parsed key within the result. The value of running_config option should be the same format as the output of command show running-config | include ^interface|ip access-group|ipv6 traffic-filter executed on device. For state parsed active connection to remote host is not required.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • gathered

  • parsed

  • rendered
