Requirements

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

  • ncclient (>=v0.6.4)

  • xmltodict (>=0.12)

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of static routes options

address_families

list / elements=dictionary

Address family to use for the static routes

afi

string / required

afi to use for the static routes

Choices:

  • ipv4

  • ipv6

routes

list / elements=dictionary

Static route configuration

dest

string

Static route destination including prefix

metric

integer

Metric value for the static route

next_hop

list / elements=dictionary

Next hop to destination

forward_router_address

string

List of next hops

vrf

string

Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) name

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 routing-options.

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 the configuration should be left in

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • gathered

  • rendered

  • parsed

Notes

Note

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

  • This module works with connection netconf. See the Junos OS Platform Options.

  • Tested against JunOS v18.4R1
