Synopsis

  • Add and delete an IPA DNS Zones using IPA API

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

allowsyncptr

boolean

added in 4.3.0 of community.general

Allow synchronization of forward and reverse records in the zone.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

dynamicupdate

boolean

Apply dynamic update to zone.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

ipa_host

string

IP or hostname of IPA server.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable IPA_HOST will be used instead.

If both the environment variable IPA_HOST and the value are not specified in the task, then DNS will be used to try to discover the FreeIPA server.

The relevant entry needed in FreeIPA is the ‘ipa-ca’ entry.

If neither the DNS entry, nor the environment IPA_HOST, nor the value are available in the task, then the default value will be used.

Environment variable fallback mechanism is added in Ansible 2.5.

Default: “ipa.example.com”

ipa_pass

string

Password of administrative user.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable IPA_PASS will be used instead.

Note that if the ‘urllib_gssapi’ library is available, it is possible to use GSSAPI to authenticate to FreeIPA.

If the environment variable KRB5CCNAME is available, the module will use this kerberos credentials cache to authenticate to the FreeIPA server.

If the environment variable KRB5_CLIENT_KTNAME is available, and KRB5CCNAME is not; the module will use this kerberos keytab to authenticate.

If GSSAPI is not available, the usage of ‘ipa_pass’ is required.

Environment variable fallback mechanism is added in Ansible 2.5.

ipa_port

integer

Port of FreeIPA / IPA server.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable IPA_PORT will be used instead.

If both the environment variable IPA_PORT and the value are not specified in the task, then default value is set.

Environment variable fallback mechanism is added in Ansible 2.5.

Default: 443

ipa_prot

string

Protocol used by IPA server.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable IPA_PROT will be used instead.

If both the environment variable IPA_PROT and the value are not specified in the task, then default value is set.

Environment variable fallback mechanism is added in Ansible 2.5.

Choices:

  • http

  • https ← (default)

ipa_timeout

integer

Specifies idle timeout (in seconds) for the connection.

For bulk operations, you may want to increase this in order to avoid timeout from IPA server.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable IPA_TIMEOUT will be used instead.

If both the environment variable IPA_TIMEOUT and the value are not specified in the task, then default value is set.

Default: 10

ipa_user

string

Administrative account used on IPA server.

If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable IPA_USER will be used instead.

If both the environment variable IPA_USER and the value are not specified in the task, then default value is set.

Environment variable fallback mechanism is added in Ansible 2.5.

Default: “admin”

state

string

State to ensure

Choices:

  • absent

  • present ← (default)

validate_certs

boolean

This only applies if ipa_prot is https.

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.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

zone_name

string / required

The DNS zone name to which needs to be managed.
