Parameters

Parameter

Comments

cert_filepath

string

added in netapp.ontap 20.6.0

path to SSL client cert file (.pem).

not supported with python 2.6.

feature_flags

dictionary

added in netapp.ontap 20.5.0

Enable or disable a new feature.

This can be used to enable an experimental feature or disable a new feature that breaks backward compatibility.

Supported keys and values are subject to change without notice. Unknown keys are ignored.

force_ontap_version

string

added in netapp.ontap 21.23.0

Override the cluster ONTAP version when using REST.

The behavior is undefined if the version does not match the target cluster.

This is provided as a work-around when the cluster version cannot be read because of permission issues. See https://github.com/ansible-collections/netapp.ontap/wiki/Known-issues.

This should be in the form 9.10 or 9.10.1 with each element being an integer number.

When use_rest is set to auto, this may force a switch to ZAPI based on the version and platform capabilities.

Ignored with ZAPI.
