    cache = no
    
  • Environment variable: ANSIBLE_INVENTORY_CACHE

cache_connection

string

Cache connection data or path, read cache plugin documentation for specifics.

Configuration:

  • INI entries:

    [defaults]
    fact_caching_connection = None
    
    [inventory]
    cache_connection = None
    
  • Environment variable: ANSIBLE_CACHE_PLUGIN_CONNECTION

    [default]
    fact_caching_prefix = ansible_inventory_
    

    Removed in: version 2.16 of ansible.builtin

    Why: Fixes typing error in INI section name

    Alternative: Use the ‘defaults’ section instead

compose

dictionary

Create vars from jinja2 expressions.

Default: {}

filters

list / elements=string

added in 1.5.0 of community.digitalocean

Filter hosts with Jinja templates.

If no filters are specified, all hosts are added to the inventory.

Default: []

groups

dictionary

Add hosts to group based on Jinja2 conditionals.

Default: {}

keyed_groups

list / elements=dictionary

Add hosts to group based on the values of a variable.

Default: []

default_value

string

added in 2.12 of ansible.builtin

The default value when the host variable’s value is an empty string.

This option is mutually exclusive with trailing_separator.

key

string

The key from input dictionary used to generate groups

parent_group

string

parent group for keyed group

prefix

string

A keyed group name will start with this prefix

Default: “”

separator

string

separator used to build the keyed group name

Default: “_”

trailing_separator

boolean

added in 2.12 of ansible.builtin

Set this option to False to omit the separator after the host variable when the value is an empty string.

This option is mutually exclusive with default_value.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

leading_separator

boolean

added in 2.11 of ansible.builtin

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.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

oauth_token

aliases: api_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’

pagination

integer

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.

Default: 200

plugin

string / required

The name of the DigitalOcean Inventory Plugin, this should always be community.digitalocean.digitalocean.

Choices:

  • community.digitalocean.digitalocean

strict

boolean

If yes make invalid entries a fatal error, otherwise skip and continue.

Since it is possible to use facts in the expressions they might not always be available and we ignore those errors by default.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

timeout

integer

The timeout in seconds used for polling DigitalOcean’s API.

Default: 30

use_extra_vars

boolean

added in 2.11 of ansible.builtin

Merge extra vars into the available variables for composition (highest precedence).

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

    [inventory_plugins]
    use_extra_vars = no
    
  • Environment variable: ANSIBLE_INVENTORY_USE_EXTRA_VARS

validate_certs

boolean

If set to no, the SSL certificates will not be validated.

This should only set to no used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.

Hint

Configuration entries for each entry type have a low to high priority order. For example, a variable that is lower in the list will override a variable that is higher up.
