Deprecated

Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli or connection: netconf.

For more information please see the Junos OS Platform Options guide.


A dict object containing connection details.

host

string

Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.

password

string

Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.

port

integer

Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. The port value will default to the well known SSH port of 22 (for transport=cli) or port 830 (for transport=netconf) device.

ssh_keyfile

path

Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is the path to the key used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.

timeout

integer

Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.

transport

string

Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device.

Choices:

  • cli

  • netconf ← (default)

username

string

Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.

rx_rate

string

Receiver rate in bits per second (bps).

This is state check parameter only.

Supports conditionals, see Conditionals in Networking Modules

speed

string

Interface link speed.

state

string

State of the Interface configuration, up indicates present and operationally up and down indicates present and operationally down

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

  • up

  • down

tx_rate

string

Transmit rate in bits per second (bps).

This is state check parameter only.

Supports conditionals, see Conditionals in Networking Modules

Notes

Note

  • This module requires the netconf system service be enabled on the remote device being managed.

  • Tested against vSRX JUNOS version 15.1X49-D15.4, vqfx-10000 JUNOS Version 15.1X53-D60.4.

  • Recommended connection is netconf. See the Junos OS Platform Options.

  • This module also works with local connections for legacy playbooks.

  • For information on using CLI and netconf see the Junos OS Platform Options guide

  • For more information on using Ansible to manage network devices see the Ansible Network Guide
