community.general.memset_zone_record module – Create and delete records in Memset DNS zones.

Note

This module is part of the community.general collection (version 5.4.0).

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.memset_zone_record.

Synopsis

  • Manage DNS records in a Memset account.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

address

aliases: ip, data

string / required

The address for this record (can be IP or text string depending on record type).

api_key

string / required

The API key obtained from the Memset control panel.

priority

integer

SRV and TXT record priority, in the range 0 > 999 (inclusive).

record

string

The subdomain to create.

relative

boolean

If set then the current domain is added onto the address field for CNAME, MX, NS and SRVrecord types.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

state

string

Indicates desired state of resource.

Choices:

  • absent

  • present ← (default)

ttl

integer

The record’s TTL in seconds (will inherit zone’s TTL if not explicitly set). This must be a valid int from https://www.memset.com/apidocs/methods_dns.html#dns.zone_record_create.

Choices:

  • 0

  • 300

  • 600

  • 900

  • 1800

  • 3600

  • 7200

  • 10800

  • 21600

  • 43200

  • 86400

type

string / required

The type of DNS record to create.

Choices:

  • A

  • AAAA

  • CNAME

  • MX

  • NS

  • SRV

  • TXT

zone

string / required

The name of the zone to which to add the record to.

Notes

Note

  • Zones can be thought of as a logical group of domains, all of which share the same DNS records (i.e. they point to the same IP). An API key generated via the Memset customer control panel is needed with the following minimum scope - dns.zone_create, dns.zone_delete, dns.zone_list.

  • Currently this module can only create one DNS record at a time. Multiple records should be created using with_items.

Examples

# Create DNS record for www.domain.com

    state: present
    zone: domain.com
    type: A
    record: www
    address: 1.2.3.4
    ttl: 300
    relative: false
  delegate_to: localhost

# create an SPF record for domain.com
- name: Create SPF record for domain.com
  community.general.memset_zone_record:
    api_key: dcf089a2896940da9ffefb307ef49ccd
    state: present
    zone: domain.com
    type: TXT
    address: "v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:a1.2.3.4 ?all"
  delegate_to: localhost

# create multiple DNS records
- name: Create multiple DNS records
  community.general.memset_zone_record:
    api_key: dcf089a2896940da9ffefb307ef49ccd
    zone: "{{ item.zone }}"
    type: "{{ item.type }}"
    record: "{{ item.record }}"
    address: "{{ item.address }}"
  delegate_to: localhost
  with_items:
    - { 'zone': 'domain1.com', 'type': 'A', 'record': 'www', 'address': '1.2.3.4' }
    - { 'zone': 'domain2.com', 'type': 'A', 'record': 'mail', 'address': '4.3.2.1' }
