  • 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 Choices/Defaults Comments
auth_token
string
Packet API token. You can also supply it in env var PACKET_API_TOKEN.
cidr
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.

aliases: name
device_count
integer
Default:
100
The number of devices to retrieve from the project. The max allowed value is 1000.
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
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
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.

# All the examples assume that you have your Packet API token in env var PACKET_API_TOKEN.
# You can also pass it to the auth_token parameter of the module instead.
