New in version 2.0.0: of fortinet.fortios

Synopsis

  • This module is able to configure a FortiGate or FortiOS (FOS) device by allowing the user to set and modify firewall_shaper feature and traffic_shaper category. Examples include all parameters and values need to be adjusted to datasources before usage. Tested with FOS v6.0.0

Requirements

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

  • ansible>=2.9

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

access_token

string

Token-based authentication. Generated from GUI of Fortigate.

enable_log

boolean

Enable/Disable logging for task.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

firewall_shaper_traffic_shaper

dictionary

Configure shared traffic shaper.

bandwidth_unit

string

Unit of measurement for guaranteed and maximum bandwidth for this shaper (Kbps, Mbps or Gbps).

Choices:

  • kbps

  • mbps

  • gbps

diffserv

string

Enable/disable changing the DiffServ setting applied to traffic accepted by this shaper.

Choices:

  • enable

  • disable

diffservcode

string

DiffServ setting to be applied to traffic accepted by this shaper.

dscp_marking_method

string

Select DSCP marking method.

Choices:

  • multi-stage

  • static

exceed_bandwidth

integer

Exceed bandwidth used for DSCP multi-stage marking. Units depend on the bandwidth-unit setting.

exceed_class_id

integer

Class ID for traffic in guaranteed-bandwidth and maximum-bandwidth. Source firewall.traffic-class.class-id.

exceed_dscp

string

DSCP mark for traffic in guaranteed-bandwidth and exceed-bandwidth.

guaranteed_bandwidth

integer

Amount of bandwidth guaranteed for this shaper (0 - 16776000). Units depend on the bandwidth-unit setting.

maximum_bandwidth

integer

Upper bandwidth limit enforced by this shaper (0 - 16776000). 0 means no limit. Units depend on the bandwidth-unit setting.

maximum_dscp

string

DSCP mark for traffic in exceed-bandwidth and maximum-bandwidth.

name

string / required

Traffic shaper name.

overhead

integer

Per-packet size overhead used in rate computations.

per_policy

string

Enable/disable applying a separate shaper for each policy. For example, if enabled the guaranteed bandwidth is applied separately for each policy.

Choices:

  • disable

  • enable

priority

string

Higher priority traffic is more likely to be forwarded without delays and without compromising the guaranteed bandwidth.

Choices:

  • low

  • medium

  • high

member_path

string

Member attribute path to operate on.

Delimited by a slash character if there are more than one attribute.

Parameter marked with member_path is legitimate for doing member operation.

member_state

Choices:

  • present

  • absent

state

string / required

Indicates whether to create or remove the object.

Choices:

  • present

  • absent

vdom

string

Virtual domain, among those defined previously. A vdom is a virtual instance of the FortiGate that can be configured and used as a different unit.

Default: “root”
