community.general.keycloak_realm_key module – Allows administration of Keycloak realm keys via Keycloak API

Note

This module is part of the community.general collection (version 9.0.1).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.general.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.general.keycloak_realm_key.

New in community.general 7.5.0

Synopsis

  • This module allows the administration of Keycloak realm keys via the Keycloak REST API. It requires access to the REST API via OpenID Connect; the user connecting and the realm being used must have the requisite access rights. In a default Keycloak installation, admin-cli and an admin user would work, as would a separate realm definition with the scope tailored to your needs and a user having the expected roles.

  • The names of module options are snake_cased versions of the camelCase ones found in the Keycloak API and its documentation at https://www.keycloak.org/docs-api/8.0/rest-api/index.html. Aliases are provided so camelCased versions can be used as well.

  • This module is unable to detect changes to the actual cryptographic key after importing it. However, if some other property is changed alongside the cryptographic key, then the key will also get changed as a side-effect, as the JSON payload needs to include the private key. This can be considered either a bug or a feature, as the alternative would be to always update the realm key whether it has changed or not.

  • If certificate is not explicitly provided it will be dynamically created by Keycloak. Therefore comparing the current state of the certificate to the desired state (which may be empty) is not possible.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

auth_client_id

string

OpenID Connect client_id to authenticate to the API with.

Default: "admin-cli"

auth_client_secret

string

Client Secret to use in conjunction with auth_client_id (if required).

auth_keycloak_url

aliases: url

string / required

URL to the Keycloak instance.

auth_password

aliases: password

string

Password to authenticate for API access with.

auth_realm

string

Keycloak realm name to authenticate to for API access.

auth_username

aliases: username

string

Username to authenticate for API access with.

config

dictionary

Dict specifying the key and its properties.

active

boolean

Whether they key is active or inactive. Not to be confused with the state of the Ansible resource managed by the state parameter.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

algorithm

string

Key algorithm.

The values RS384, RS512, PS256, PS384, PS512, RSA1_5, RSA-OAEP, RSA-OAEP-256 have been added in community.general 8.2.0.

Choices:

  • "RS256" ← (default)

  • "RS384"

  • "RS512"

  • "PS256"

  • "PS384"

  • "PS512"

  • "RSA1_5"

  • "RSA-OAEP"

  • "RSA-OAEP-256"

certificate

string / required

A certificate signed with the private key as an ASCII string. Contents of the key must match config.algorithm and provider_id.

If you want Keycloak to automatically generate a certificate using your private key then set this to an empty string.

enabled

boolean

Whether the key is enabled or disabled. Not to be confused with the state of the Ansible resource managed by the state parameter.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

priority

integer / required

The priority of the key.

private_key

string / required

The private key as an ASCII string. Contents of the key must match config.algorithm and provider_id.

Please note that the module cannot detect whether the private key specified differs from the current state’s private key. Use force=true to force the module to update the private key if you expect it to be updated.

connection_timeout

integer

added in community.general 4.5.0

Controls the HTTP connections timeout period (in seconds) to Keycloak API.

Default: 10

force

boolean

Enforce the state of the private key and certificate. This is not automatically the case as this module is unable to determine the current state of the private key and thus cannot trigger an update based on an actual divergence. That said, a private key update may happen even if force is false as a side-effect of other changes.

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

http_agent

string

added in community.general 5.4.0

Configures the HTTP User-Agent header.

Default: "Ansible"

name

string / required

Name of the realm key to create.

parent_id

string / required

The parent_id of the realm key. In practice the ID (name) of the realm.

provider_id

string

The name of the “provider ID” for the key.

The value rsa-enc has been added in community.general 8.2.0.

Choices:

  • "rsa" ← (default)

  • "rsa-enc"

state

string

State of the keycloak realm key.

On present, the realm key will be created (or updated if it exists already).

On absent, the realm key will be removed if it exists.

Choices:

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "absent"

token

string

added in community.general 3.0.0

Authentication token for Keycloak API.

validate_certs

boolean

Verify TLS certificates (do not disable this in production).

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

Attributes

Attribute

Support

Description

check_mode

Support: full

Can run in check_mode and return changed status prediction without modifying target.

diff_mode

Support: partial

Will return details on what has changed (or possibly needs changing in check_mode), when in diff mode.

Notes

Note

  • Current value of the private key cannot be fetched from Keycloak. Therefore comparing its desired state to the current state is not possible.

  • If certificate is not explicitly provided it will be dynamically created by Keycloak. Therefore comparing the current state of the certificate to the desired state (which may be empty) is not possible.

  • Due to the private key and certificate options the module is not fully idempotent. You can use force=true to force the module to always update if you know that the private key might have changed.
