Synopsis

Requirements

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

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

api_user

string

The OCID of the user, on whose behalf, OCI APIs are invoked. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_OCID environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the user is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the user’s OCID, please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.

api_user_fingerprint

string

Fingerprint for the key pair being used. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_FINGERPRINT environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key fingerprint is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the key pair’s fingerprint value please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.

api_user_key_file

path

Full path and filename of the private key (in PEM format). If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_FILE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the private key is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). If the key is encrypted with a pass-phrase, the api_user_key_pass_phrase option must also be provided.

api_user_key_pass_phrase

string

Passphrase used by the key referenced in api_user_key_file, if it is encrypted. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_PASS_PHRASE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key passphrase is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location).

auth_type

string

The type of authentication to use for making API requests. By default auth_type="api_key" based authentication is performed and the API key (see api_user_key_file) in your config file will be used. If this ‘auth_type’ module option is not specified, the value of the OCI_ANSIBLE_AUTH_TYPE, if any, is used. Use auth_type="instance_principal" to use instance principal based authentication when running ansible playbooks within an OCI compute instance.

Choices:

  • api_key ← (default)

  • instance_principal

cidr_block

string

The CIDR IP address block of the VCN. Required when creating a VCN with state=present.

compartment_id

string

The OCID of the compartment to contain the VCN. Required when creating a VCN with state=present. This option is mutually exclusive with vcn_id.

config_file_location

string

Path to configuration file. If not set then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_FILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to ~/.oci/config.

config_profile_name

string

The profile to load from the config file referenced by config_file_location. If not set, then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_PROFILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to the “DEFAULT” profile in config_file_location.

Default: “DEFAULT”

defined_tags

dictionary

Defined tags for this resource. Each key is predefined and scoped to a namespace. For more information, see https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/General/Concepts/resourcetags.htm.

display_name

aliases: name

string

A user-friendly name. Does not have to be unique, and it’s changeable.

dns_label

string

A DNS label for the VCN, used in conjunction with the VNIC’s hostname and subnet’s DNS label to form a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for each VNIC within this subnet (for example, bminstance-1.subnet123.vcn1.oraclevcn.com). Not required to be unique, but it’s a best practice to set unique DNS labels for VCNs in your tenancy. Must be an alphanumeric string that begins with a letter. The value cannot be changed.

force_create

boolean

Whether to attempt non-idempotent creation of a resource. By default, create resource is an idempotent operation, and doesn’t create the resource if it already exists. Setting this option to true, forcefully creates a copy of the resource, even if it already exists.This option is mutually exclusive with key_by.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

freeform_tags

dictionary

Free-form tags for this resource. Each tag is a simple key-value pair with no predefined name, type, or namespace. For more information, see https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/General/Concepts/resourcetags.htm.

key_by

list / elements=string

The list of comma-separated attributes of this resource which should be used to uniquely identify an instance of the resource. By default, all the attributes of a resource except freeform_tags are used to uniquely identify a resource.

region

string

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure region to use for all OCI API requests. If not set, then the value of the OCI_REGION variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the region is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). Please refer to https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/General/Concepts/regions.htm for more information on OCI regions.

state

string

Create or update a VCN with state=present. Use state=absent to delete a VCN.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

tenancy

string

OCID of your tenancy. If not set, then the value of the OCI_TENANCY variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the tenancy OCID is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the tenancy OCID, please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm

vcn_id

aliases: id

string

The OCID of the VCN. Required when deleting a VCN with state=absent or updating a VCN with state=present. This option is mutually exclusive with compartment_id.

wait

boolean

Whether to wait for create or delete operation to complete.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

wait_timeout

integer

Time, in seconds, to wait when wait=yes.

Default: 1200

wait_until

string

The lifecycle state to wait for the resource to transition into when wait=yes. By default, when wait=yes, we wait for the resource to get into ACTIVE/ATTACHED/AVAILABLE/PROVISIONED/ RUNNING applicable lifecycle state during create operation & to get into DELETED/DETACHED/ TERMINATED lifecycle state during delete operation.
