Note

This plugin is part of the junipernetworks.junos collection.

To install it use: ansible-galaxy collection install junipernetworks.junos.

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

New in version 1.0.0: of junipernetworks.junos

Synopsis

  • This module manages link layer discovery protocol (LLDP) attributes on Juniper JUNOS devices.

Requirements

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

  • ncclient (>=v0.6.4)

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
config
dictionary
The list of link layer discovery protocol attribute configurations
address
string
This argument sets the management address from LLDP.
enabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
This argument is a boolean value to enabled or disable LLDP.
hold_multiplier
integer
Specify the number of seconds that LLDP information is held before it is discarded. The multiplier value is used in combination with the interval value.
interval
integer
Frequency at which LLDP advertisements are sent (in seconds).
transmit_delay
integer
Specify the number of seconds the device waits before sending advertisements to neighbors after a change is made in local system.
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 protocols lldp.
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
    Choices:
  • merged ←
  • replaced
  • deleted
  • gathered
  • rendered
  • parsed
The state of the configuration after module completion.

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.
