junipernetworks.junos.junos_interfaces module – Junos Interfaces resource module

Note

This module is part of the junipernetworks.junos collection (version 4.0.0).

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 junipernetworks.junos. You need further requirements to be able to use this module, see Requirements for details.

To use it in a playbook, specify: junipernetworks.junos.junos_interfaces.

New in junipernetworks.junos 1.0.0

Synopsis

  • This module manages the interfaces on Juniper Junos OS network devices.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Requirements

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

  • ncclient (>=v0.6.4)

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

The provided configuration

description

string

Interface description.

duplex

string

Interface link status. Applicable for Ethernet interfaces only, either in half duplex, full duplex or in automatic state which negotiates the duplex automatically.

Choices:

  • "automatic"

  • "full-duplex"

  • "half-duplex"

enabled

boolean

Administrative state of the interface.

Set the value to true to administratively enabled the interface or false to disable it.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

hold_time

dictionary

The hold time for given interface name.

down

integer

The link down hold time in milliseconds.

up

integer

The link up hold time in milliseconds.

mtu

integer

MTU for a specific interface.

Applicable for Ethernet interfaces only.

name

string / required

Full name of interface, e.g. ge-0/0/0.

speed

string

Interface link speed. Applicable for Ethernet interfaces only.

units

list / elements=dictionary

Specify Logical interfaces units.

description

string

Specify logical interface description.

name

integer

Specify interface unit number.

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the Junos device by executing the command show interfaces.

The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into Ansible structured data as per the resource module’s argspec and the value is then returned in the parsed key within the result.

state

string

The state of the configuration after module completion

Choices:

  • "merged" ← (default)

  • "replaced"

  • "overridden"

  • "deleted"

  • "gathered"

  • "parsed"

  • "rendered"

Notes

Note

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

  • Tested against vSRX JUNOS version 18.4R1.

  • This module works with connection netconf.

  • See the Junos OS Platform Options.
