cisco.iosxr.iosxr_lldp_interfaces module – Resource module to configure LLDP interfaces.

Note

This module is part of the cisco.iosxr 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.iosxr.

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

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.iosxr

Synopsis

  • This module manages Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) attributes of interfaces on IOS-XR devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of LLDP interfaces options.

destination

dictionary

Specifies LLDP destination configuration on the interface.

mac_address

string

Specifies the LLDP destination mac address on the interface.

Choices:

  • ieee-nearest-bridge

  • ieee-nearest-non-tmpr-bridge

name

string

Name/Identifier of the interface or Ether-Bundle.

receive

boolean

Enable/disable LLDP RX on an interface.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

transmit

boolean

Enable/disable LLDP TX on an interface.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

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 int.

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

The state of the configuration after module completion.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • parsed

  • rendered

  • gathered
