community.docker.docker_machine – Docker Machine inventory source

Note

This plugin is part of the community.docker collection (version 1.9.1).

To install it use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.docker.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.docker.docker_machine.

Synopsis

  • Get inventory hosts from Docker Machine.

  • Uses a YAML configuration file that ends with docker_machine.(yml|yaml).

  • The plugin sets standard host variables ansible_host, ansible_port, ansible_user and ansible_ssh_private_key.

  • The plugin stores the Docker Machine ‘env’ output variables in dm_ prefixed host variables.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the local controller node that executes this inventory.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Configuration Comments
compose
dictionary
Default:
{}
Create vars from jinja2 expressions.
daemon_env
string
    Choices:
  • require ←
  • require-silently
  • optional
  • optional-silently
  • skip
Whether docker daemon connection environment variables should be fetched, and how to behave if they cannot be fetched.
With require and require-silently, fetch them and skip any host for which they cannot be fetched. A warning will be issued for any skipped host if the choice is require.
With optional and optional-silently, fetch them and not skip hosts for which they cannot be fetched. A warning will be issued for hosts where they cannot be fetched if the choice is optional.
With skip, do not attempt to fetch the docker daemon connection environment variables.
If fetched successfully, the variables will be prefixed with dm_ and stored as host variables.
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.
plugin
string / required
    Choices:
  • docker_machine
  • community.docker.docker_machine
token that ensures this is a source file for the docker_machine plugin.
running_required
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
when true, hosts which Docker Machine indicates are in a state other than running will be skipped.
strict
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
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.
use_extra_vars
boolean
added in 2.11 of ansible.builtin
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
ini entries:

[inventory_plugins]
use_extra_vars = no

env:ANSIBLE_INVENTORY_USE_EXTRA_VARS
Merge extra vars into the available variables for composition (highest precedence).
verbose_output
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
when true, include all available nodes metadata (e.g. Image, Region, Size) as a JSON object named docker_machine_node_attributes.

Examples

# Minimal example
plugin: community.docker.docker_machine

# Example using constructed features to create a group per Docker Machine driver
# (https://docs.docker.com/machine/drivers/), e.g.:
#   $ docker-machine create --driver digitalocean ... mymachine
#   $ ansible-inventory -i ./path/to/docker-machine.yml --host=mymachine
#   {
#     ...
#     "digitalocean": {
#       "hosts": [
#           "mymachine"
#       ]
#     ...
#   }
strict: no
keyed_groups:
  - separator: ''
    key: docker_machine_node_attributes.DriverName

# Example grouping hosts by Digital Machine tag
strict: no
keyed_groups:
  - prefix: tag
    key: 'dm_tags'

# Example using compose to override the default SSH behaviour of asking the user to accept the remote host key
compose:
  ansible_ssh_common_args: '"-o StrictHostKeyChecking=accept-new"'
