Synopsis

  • Manages members in a device group. Members in a device group can only be added or removed, never updated. This is because the members are identified by unique name values and changing that name would invalidate the uniqueness.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

device_group

string / required

The device group to which you want to add the member.

name

string / required

Specifies the name of the device that you want to add to the device group. Often this will be the hostname of the device. This member must be trusted by the device already. Trusting can be done with the bigip_device_trust module and the peer_hostname option to that module.

provider

dictionary

added in f5networks.f5_modules 1.0.0

A dict object containing connection details.

auth_provider

string

Configures the auth provider for to obtain authentication tokens from the remote device.

This option is really used when working with BIG-IQ devices.

no_f5_teem

boolean

If yes, TEEM telemetry data is not sent to F5.

You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_TELEMETRY_OFF.

Previously used variable F5_TEEM is deprecated as its name was confusing.

Notes

Note

  • For more information on using Ansible to manage F5 Networks devices see https://www.ansible.com/integrations/networks/f5.

  • Requires BIG-IP software version >= 12.

  • The F5 modules only manipulate the running configuration of the F5 product. To ensure that BIG-IP specific configuration persists to disk, be sure to include at least one task that uses the f5networks.f5_modules.bigip_config module to save the running configuration. Refer to the module’s documentation for the correct usage of the module to save your running configuration.
