Synopsis

  • Assign or unassign IPv4 or IPv6 subnets to or from a device in the Packet host.

  • IPv4 subnets must come from already reserved block.

  • IPv6 subnets must come from publicly routable /56 block from your project.

  • See https://support.packet.com/kb/articles/elastic-ips for more info on IP block reservation.

Requirements

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

  • packet-python >= 1.35

  • python >= 2.6

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

auth_token

string

Packet API token. You can also supply it in env var PACKET_API_TOKEN.

cidr

aliases: name

string / required

IPv4 or IPv6 subnet which you want to manage. It must come from a reserved block for your project in the Packet Host.

device_count

integer

The number of devices to retrieve from the project. The max allowed value is 1000.

See https://www.packet.com/developers/api/#retrieve-all-devices-of-a-project for more info.

Default: 100

device_id

string

UUID of a device to/from which to assign/remove a subnet.

hostname

string

A hostname of a device to/from which to assign/remove a subnet.

project_id

string

UUID of a project of the device to/from which to assign/remove a subnet.

state

string

Desired state of the IP subnet on the specified device.

With state == present, you must specify either hostname or device_id. Subnet with given CIDR will then be assigned to the specified device.

With state == absent, you can specify either hostname or device_id. The subnet will be removed from specified devices.

If you leave both hostname and device_id empty, the subnet will be removed from any device it’s assigned to.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

# You can also pass it to the auth_token parameter of the module instead.
