cisco.iosxr.iosxr_static_routes module – Static routes resource module

Note

This module is part of the cisco.iosxr collection (version 3.0.0).

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_static_routes.

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.iosxr

Synopsis

  • This module manages static routes on devices running Cisco IOS-XR.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of static route options.

address_families

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary specifying the address family to which the static route(s) belong.

afi

string / required

Specifies the top level address family indicator.

Choices:

  • ipv4

  • ipv6

routes

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary that specifies the static route configurations.

dest

string / required

An IPv4 or IPv6 address in CIDR notation that specifies the destination network for the static route.

next_hops

list / elements=dictionary

Next hops to the specified destination.

admin_distance

integer

The administrative distance for this static route.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

description

string

Specifies the description for this static route.

dest_vrf

string

The destination VRF.

forward_router_address

string

The IP address of the next hop that can be used to reach the destination network.

interface

string

The interface to use to reach the destination.

metric

integer

Specifes the metric for this static route.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

tag

integer

Specifies a numeric tag for this static route.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

track

string

Specifies the object to be tracked.

This enables object tracking for static routes.

tunnel_id

integer

Specifies a tunnel id for the route.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

vrflabel

integer

Specifies the VRF label for this static route.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

safi

string / required

Specifies the subsequent address family indicator.

Choices:

  • unicast

  • multicast

vrf

string

The VRF to which the static route(s) belong.

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 router static.

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 the configuration should be left in.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • gathered

  • rendered

  • parsed
