cisco.nxos.nxos_acl_interfaces module – ACL interfaces resource module

Note

This module is part of the cisco.nxos collection (version 3.1.1).

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.nxos.

To use it in a playbook, specify: cisco.nxos.nxos_acl_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.nxos

Synopsis

  • Add and remove Access Control Lists on interfaces in NX-OS platform

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A list of interfaces to be configured with ACLs

access_groups

list / elements=dictionary

List of address family indicators with ACLs to be configured on the interface

acls

list / elements=dictionary

List of Access Control Lists for the interface

direction

string / required

Direction to be applied for the ACL

Choices:

  • in

  • out

name

string / required

Name of the ACL to be added/removed

port

boolean

Use ACL as port policy.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

afi

string / required

Address Family Indicator of the ACLs to be configured

Choices:

  • ipv4

  • ipv6

name

string / required

Name of the interface

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the NX-OS device by executing the command show running-config | section ‘^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

The state the configuration should be left in

Choices:

  • deleted

  • gathered

  • merged ← (default)

  • overridden

  • rendered

  • replaced

  • parsed

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NX-OS 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS
