Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
admin_state
string
    Choices:
  • up ←
  • down
Manage the VLAN administrative state of the VLAN equivalent to shut/no shut in VLAN config mode.
aggregate
list / elements=dictionary
List of VLANs definitions.
admin_state
string
    Choices:
  • up
  • down
Manage the VLAN administrative state of the VLAN equivalent to shut/no shut in VLAN config mode.
associated_interfaces
list / elements=string
This is a intent option and checks the operational state of the for given vlan name for associated interfaces. If the value in the associated_interfaces does not match with the operational state of vlan interfaces on device it will result in failure.
delay
integer
Time in seconds to wait before checking for the operational state on remote device. This wait is applicable for operational state arguments.
interfaces
list / elements=string
List of interfaces that should be associated to the VLAN or keyword 'default'.
mapped_vni
string
The Virtual Network Identifier (VNI) ID that is mapped to the VLAN. Valid values are integer and keyword 'default'. Range 4096-16773119.
mode
string
    Choices:
  • ce
  • fabricpath
Set VLAN mode to classical ethernet or fabricpath. This is a valid option for Nexus 5000 and 7000 series.
name
string
Name of VLAN or keyword 'default'.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present
  • absent
Manage the state of the resource.
vlan_id
integer / required
Single VLAN ID.
vlan_range
string
Range of VLANs such as 2-10 or 2,5,10-15, etc.
vlan_state
string
    Choices:
  • active
  • suspend
Manage the vlan operational state of the VLAN
associated_interfaces
list / elements=string
This is a intent option and checks the operational state of the for given vlan name for associated interfaces. If the value in the associated_interfaces does not match with the operational state of vlan interfaces on device it will result in failure.
delay
integer
Default:
10
Time in seconds to wait before checking for the operational state on remote device. This wait is applicable for operational state arguments.
interfaces
list / elements=string
List of interfaces that should be associated to the VLAN or keyword 'default'.
mapped_vni
string
The Virtual Network Identifier (VNI) ID that is mapped to the VLAN. Valid values are integer and keyword 'default'. Range 4096-16773119.
mode
string
    Choices:
  • ce ←
  • fabricpath
Set VLAN mode to classical ethernet or fabricpath. This is a valid option for Nexus 5000 and 7000 series.
name
string
Name of VLAN or keyword 'default'.
provider
dictionary
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.
Starting with Ansible 2.6 we recommend using connection: httpapi for NX-API.
This option will be removed in a release after 2022-06-01.

A dict object containing connection details.
auth_pass
string
Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTH_PASS will be used instead.
authorize
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTHORIZE will be used instead.
host
string
Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.
password
string
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This is a common argument used for either cli or nxapi transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
integer
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. This value applies to either cli or nxapi. The port value will default to the appropriate transport common port if none is provided in the task. (cli=22, http=80, https=443).
ssh_keyfile
string
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This argument is only used for the cli transport. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
timeout
integer
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error. NX-API can be slow to return on long-running commands (sh mac, sh bgp, etc).
transport
string
    Choices:
  • cli ←
  • nxapi
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device. The transport argument supports connectivity to the device over cli (ssh) or nxapi.
use_proxy
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy will be ignored.
use_ssl
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Configures the transport to use SSL if set to yes only when the transport=nxapi, otherwise this value is ignored.
username
string
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate either the CLI login or the nxapi authentication depending on which transport is used. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
If no, SSL certificates will not be validated. This should only be used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates. If the transport argument is not nxapi, this value is ignored.
purge
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Purge VLANs not defined in the aggregate parameter. This parameter can be used without aggregate as well.
Removal of Vlan 1 is not allowed and will be ignored by purge.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Manage the state of the resource.
vlan_id
integer
Single VLAN ID.
vlan_range
string
Range of VLANs such as 2-10 or 2,5,10-15, etc.
vlan_state
string
    Choices:
  • active ←
  • suspend
Manage the vlan operational state of the VLAN
