compose
dictionary
Default:
{}
Create vars from jinja2 expressions.
filters
list / elements=string
Default:
[]
Filter hosts with Jinja templates.
If no filters are specified, all hosts are added to the inventory.
groups
dictionary
Default:
{}
Add hosts to group based on Jinja2 conditionals.
keyed_groups
list / elements=string
Default:
[]
Add hosts to group based on the values of a variable.
leading_separator
boolean
added in 2.11 of ansible.builtin
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Use in conjunction with keyed_groups.
By default, a keyed group that does not have a prefix or a separator provided will have a name that starts with an underscore.
This is because the default prefix is "" and the default separator is "_".
Set this option to False to omit the leading underscore (or other separator) if no prefix is given.
If the group name is derived from a mapping the separator is still used to concatenate the items.
To not use a separator in the group name at all, set the separator for the keyed group to an empty string instead.
oauth_token
string
DigitalOcean OAuth token.
There are several other environment variables which can be used to provide this value.
i.e., - 'DO_API_TOKEN', 'DO_API_KEY', 'DO_OAUTH_TOKEN' and 'OAUTH_TOKEN'

aliases: api_token
pagination
integer
Default:
200
Maximum droplet objects per response page.
If the number of droplets related to the account exceeds this value, the query will be broken to multiple requests (pages).
DigitalOcean currently allows a maximum of 200.
