cisco.iosxr.iosxr_interfaces – Interfaces resource module

Note

This plugin is part of the cisco.iosxr collection.

To install it use: ansible-galaxy collection install cisco.iosxr.

To use it in a playbook, specify: cisco.iosxr.iosxr_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.iosxr

Synopsis

  • This module manages the interface attributes on Cisco IOS-XR network devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
config
list / elements=dictionary
A dictionary of interface options
description
string
Interface description.
duplex
string
    Choices:
  • full
  • half
Configures the interface duplex mode. Default is auto-negotiation when not configured.
enabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Administrative state of the interface.
Set the value to True to administratively enable the interface or False to disable it.
mtu
integer
Sets the MTU value for the interface. Applicable for Ethernet interfaces only.
Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.
name
string / required
Full name of the interface to configure in type + path format. e.g. GigabitEthernet0/0/0/0
speed
integer
Configure the speed for an interface. Default is auto-negotiation when not configured.
running_config
string
This option is used only with state parsed.
The value of this option should be the output received from the IOS-XR device by executing the command show running-config interface.
The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into Ansible structured data as per the resource module's argspec and the value is then returned in the parsed key within the result.
state
string
    Choices:
  • merged ←
  • parsed
  • deleted
  • replaced
  • rendered
  • gathered
  • overridden
The state of the configuration after module completion
