Synopsis

  • block storage management.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • keystoneauth1 >= 3.6.0

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

availability_zone

string / required

Specifies the AZ where you want to create the disk.

backup_id

string

Specifies the ID of the backup that can be used to create a disk. This parameter is mandatory when you use a backup to create the disk.

description

string

Specifies the disk description. The value can contain a maximum of 255 bytes.

domain

string / required

The name of the Domain to scope to (Identity v3). (currently only domain names are supported, and not domain IDs).

enable_full_clone

boolean

If the disk is created from a snapshot and linked cloning needs to be used, set this parameter to True.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

enable_scsi

boolean

If this parameter is set to True, the disk device type will be SCSI, which allows ECS OSs to directly access underlying storage media. SCSI reservation command is supported. If this parameter is set to False, the disk device type will be VBD, which supports only simple SCSI read/write commands.

If parameter enable_share is set to True and this parameter is not specified, shared SCSI disks are created. SCSI EVS disks cannot be created from backups, which means that this parameter cannot be True if backup_id has been specified.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

enable_share

boolean

Specifies whether the disk is shareable. The default value is False.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

encryption_id

string

Specifies the encryption ID. The length of it fixes at 36 bytes.

enterprise_project_id

string

Specifies the enterprise project ID. This ID is associated with the disk during the disk creation. If it is not specified, the disk is bound to the default enterprise project.

id

string

The id of resource to be managed.

identity_endpoint

string / required

The Identity authentication URL.

image_id

string

Specifies the image ID. If this parameter is specified, the disk is created from an image. BMS system disks cannot be created from BMS images.

name

string / required

Specifies the disk name. The value can contain a maximum of 255 bytes.

password

string / required

The password to login with.

project

string / required

The name of the Tenant (Identity v2) or Project (Identity v3). (currently only project names are supported, and not project IDs).

region

string

The region to which the project belongs.

size

integer

Specifies the disk size, in GB. Its values are as follows, System disk 1 GB to 1024 GB, Data disk 10 GB to 32768 GB. This parameter is mandatory when you create an empty disk or use an image or a snapshot to create a disk. If you use an image or a snapshot to create a disk, the disk size must be greater than or equal to the image or snapshot size. This parameter is optional when you use a backup to create a disk. If this parameter is not specified, the disk size is equal to the backup size.

snapshot_id

string

Specifies the snapshot ID. If this parameter is specified, the disk is created from a snapshot.

state

string

Whether the given object should exist in Huaweicloud Cloud.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

timeouts

dictionary

The timeouts for each operations.

create

string

The timeouts for create operation.

Default: “30m”

delete

string

The timeouts for delete operation.

Default: “30m”

update

string

The timeouts for update operation.

Default: “30m”

user

string / required

The user name to login with (currently only user names are supported, and not user IDs).

volume_type

string / required

Specifies the disk type. Currently, the value can be SSD, SAS, or SATA.

SSD specifies the ultra-high I/O disk type.

SAS specifies the high I/O disk type.

SATA specifies the common I/O disk type.

If the specified disk type is not available in the AZ, the disk will fail to create. If the EVS disk is created from a snapshot, the volume_type field must be the same as that of the snapshot’s source disk.

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.

  • For authentication, you can set region using the ANSIBLE_HWC_REGION env variable.

  • Environment variables values will only be used if the playbook values are not set.
