Notes

Note

  • For authentication, you can set identity_endpoint using the ANSIBLE_HWC_IDENTITY_ENDPOINT env variable.

  • For authentication, you can set user using the ANSIBLE_HWC_USER env variable.

  • For authentication, you can set password using the ANSIBLE_HWC_PASSWORD env variable.

  • For authentication, you can set domain using the ANSIBLE_HWC_DOMAIN env variable.

  • For authentication, you can set project using the ANSIBLE_HWC_PROJECT env variable.
