Note

This plugin is part of the community.postgresql collection (version 1.6.0).

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.postgresql.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.postgresql.postgresql_user_obj_stat_info.

New in version 0.2.0: of community.postgresql

Synopsis

  • Gathers statistics about PostgreSQL user objects.

Requirements

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

  • 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.
If you have connection issues when using localhost, try to use 127.0.0.1 instead.
login_password
string
The password this module should use to establish its PostgreSQL session.
login_unix_socket
string
Path to a Unix domain socket for local connections.
login_user
string
Default:
"postgres"
The username this module should use to establish its PostgreSQL session.
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.
