Parameter

Comments

domain_password

string

The password for username.

domain_server

string

Specifies the Active Directory Domain Services instance to connect to.

Can be in the form of an FQDN or NetBIOS name.

If not specified then the value is based on the domain of the computer running PowerShell.

If this is not set then the user Ansible used to log in with will be used instead when using CredSSP or Kerberos with credential delegation.

members

list / elements=string / required

A list of members to ensure are present/absent from the group.

The given names must be a SamAccountName of a user, group, service account, or computer.

For computers, you must add “$” after the name; for example, to add “Mycomputer” to a group, use “Mycomputer$” as the member.

If the member object is part of another domain in a multi-domain forest, you must add the domain and “\” in front of the name.

name

string / required

Name of the domain group to manage membership on.

state

string

Desired state of the members in the group.

When state is pure, only the members specified will exist, and all other existing members not specified are removed.

Choices:

  • "absent"

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "pure"

Notes

Note

  • This must be run on a host that has the ActiveDirectory powershell module installed.
