cisco.nxos.nxos_bfd_interfaces module – BFD interfaces resource module

Note

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

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

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.nxos

Synopsis

  • Manages attributes of Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) on the interface.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

The provided configuration

bfd

string

Enable/Disable Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) on the interface.

Choices:

  • enable

  • disable

echo

string

Enable/Disable BFD Echo functionality on the interface.

Choices:

  • enable

  • disable

name

string

The 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|^feature bfd’.

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

  • gathered

  • rendered

  • parsed

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NX-OS 7.0(3)I5(1).

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • Feature bfd should be enabled for this module.
