Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of VLANs on Cisco IOS network devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aggregate
list / elements=dictionary
List of VLANs definitions.
associated_interfaces
list / elements=string
This is a intent option and checks the operational state of the for given vlan name for associated interfaces. If the value in the associated_interfaces does not match with the operational state of vlan interfaces on device it will result in failure.
delay
integer
Delay the play should wait to check for declarative intent params values.
interfaces
list / elements=string / required
List of interfaces that should be associated to the VLAN.
name
string
Name of the VLAN.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present
  • absent
  • active
  • suspend
State of the VLAN configuration.
vlan_id
string / required
ID of the VLAN. Range 1-4094.
associated_interfaces
list / elements=string
This is a intent option and checks the operational state of the for given vlan name for associated interfaces. If the value in the associated_interfaces does not match with the operational state of vlan interfaces on device it will result in failure.
delay
integer
Default:
10
Delay the play should wait to check for declarative intent params values.
interfaces
list / elements=string
List of interfaces that should be associated to the VLAN.
name
string
Name of the VLAN.
provider
dictionary
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.
For more information please see the IOS Platform Options guide.

A dict object containing connection details.
auth_pass
string
Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTH_PASS will be used instead.
authorize
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTHORIZE will be used instead.
host
string
Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.
password
string
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
integer
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device.
ssh_keyfile
path
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is the path to the key used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
timeout
integer
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.
username
string
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
purge
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Purge VLANs not defined in the aggregate parameter.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • active
  • suspend
State of the VLAN configuration.
vlan_id
integer
ID of the VLAN. Range 1-4094.
