Requirements

  • psycopg2

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
ca_cert
string
Specifies the name of a file containing SSL certificate authority (CA) certificate(s).
If the file exists, the server's certificate will be verified to be signed by one of these authorities.

aliases: ssl_rootcert
db
string
Name of database to connect.

aliases: login_db
filter
list / elements=string
Limit the collected information by comma separated string or YAML list.
Allowable values are functions, indexes, tables.
By default, collects all subsets.
Unsupported values are ignored.
login_host
string
Host running the database.
login_password
string
The password used to authenticate with.
login_unix_socket
string
Path to a Unix domain socket for local connections.
login_user
string
Default:
"postgres"
The username used to authenticate with.
port
integer
Default:
5432
Database port to connect to.

aliases: login_port
schema
string
Restrict the output by certain schema.
session_role
string
Switch to session_role after connecting. The specified session_role must be a role that the current login_user is a member of.
Permissions checking for SQL commands is carried out as though the session_role were the one that had logged in originally.
ssl_mode
string
    Choices:
  • allow
  • disable
  • prefer ←
  • require
  • verify-ca
  • verify-full
Determines whether or with what priority a secure SSL TCP/IP connection will be negotiated with the server.
Default of prefer matches libpq default.
trust_input
boolean
added in 0.2.0 of community.postgresql
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, check the value of session_role is potentially dangerous.
It makes sense to use no only when SQL injections via session_role are possible.

Notes

Note

  • size and total_size returned values are presented in bytes.

  • For tracking function statistics the PostgreSQL track_functions parameter must be enabled. See https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/runtime-config-statistics.html for more information.

  • Supports check_mode.

  • The default authentication assumes that you are either logging in as or sudo’ing to the postgres account on the host.

  • To avoid “Peer authentication failed for user postgres” error, use postgres user as a become_user.

  • This module uses psycopg2, a Python PostgreSQL database adapter. You must ensure that psycopg2 is installed on the host before using this module.

  • If the remote host is the PostgreSQL server (which is the default case), then PostgreSQL must also be installed on the remote host.

  • For Ubuntu-based systems, install the postgresql, libpq-dev, and python-psycopg2 packages on the remote host before using this module.

  • The ca_cert parameter requires at least Postgres version 8.4 and psycopg2 version 2.4.3.
