netapp.ontap.na_ontap_security_certificates module – NetApp ONTAP manage security certificates.

Note

This module is part of the netapp.ontap collection (version 21.23.0).

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 netapp.ontap.

To use it in a playbook, specify: netapp.ontap.na_ontap_security_certificates.

New in version 20.7.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Install or delete security certificates on ONTAP. (Create and sign will come in a second iteration)

Requirements

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

  • Ansible 2.9 or later - 2.12 or later is recommended.

  • Python3 - 3.9 or later is recommended.

  • When using ZAPI, netapp-lib 2018.11.13 or later (install using ‘pip install netapp-lib’), netapp-lib 2020.3.12 is strongly recommended as it provides better error reporting for connection issues

  • a physical or virtual clustered Data ONTAP system, the modules support Data ONTAP 9.1 and onward, REST support requires ONTAP 9.6 or later

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

cert_filepath

string

added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap

path to SSL client cert file (.pem).

not supported with python 2.6.

common_name

string

Common name of the certificate.

Required for create and install.

If name is present, ignored for sign and delete.

If name is absent or ignored, required for sign and delete.

expiry_time

string

Certificate expiration time. Specifying an expiration time is recommended when creating a certificate.

Can be provided when signing a certificate.

feature_flags

dictionary

added in 20.5.0 of netapp.ontap

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 21.23.0 of netapp.ontap

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.

hash_function

string

Hashing function. Can be provided when creating a self-signed certificate or when signing a certificate.

Allowed values for create and sign are sha256, sha224, sha384, sha512.

hostname

string / required

The hostname or IP address of the ONTAP instance.

http_port

integer

Override the default port (80 or 443) with this port

https

boolean

Enable and disable https.

Ignored when using REST as only https is supported.

Ignored when using SSL certificate authentication as it requires SSL.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

ignore_name_if_not_supported

boolean

added in 20.8.0 of netapp.ontap

ONTAP 9.6 and 9.7 REST API does not support name.

intermediate_certificates

list / elements=string

Chain of intermediate Certificates in PEM format.

Only valid when installing a certificate.

key_filepath

string

added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap

key_size

integer

Ignored for sign and delete.

name

string

The unique name of the security certificate per SVM.

This parameter is not supported for ONTAP 9.6 or 9.7, as the REST API does not support it.

If present with ONTAP 9.6 or 9.7, it is ignored by default, see ignore_name_if_not_supported.

It is strongly recommended to use name for newer releases of ONTAP.

ontapi

integer

The ontap api version to use

password

aliases: pass

string

Password for the specified user.

private_key

string

Private key certificate in PEM format.

Required when installing a CA-signed certificate. Ignored otherwise.

public_certificate

string

Public key certificate in PEM format.

Required when installing a certificate. Ignored otherwise.

signing_request

string

If present, the certificate identified by name and svm is used to sign the request.

A signed certificate is returned.

state

string

Whether the specified security certificate should exist or not.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

svm

aliases: vserver

string

The name of the SVM (vserver).

If present, the certificate is installed in the SVM.

If absent, the certificate is installed in the cluster.

type

string

Type of certificate

Required for create and install.

If name is absent or ignored, required for sign and delete.

Choices:

  • client

  • server

  • client_ca

  • server_ca

  • root_ca

use_rest

string

Whether to use REST or ZAPI.

always – will always use the REST API if the module supports REST. A warning is issued if the module does not support REST. An error is issued if a module option is not supported in REST.

never – will always use ZAPI if the module supports ZAPI. An error may be issued if a REST option is not supported in ZAPI.

auto – will try to use the REST API if the module supports REST and modules options are supported. Reverts to ZAPI otherwise.

Default: “auto”

username

aliases: user

string

This can be a Cluster-scoped or SVM-scoped account, depending on whether a Cluster-level or SVM-level API is required.

For more information, please read the documentation https://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/nmsdk/9.4/.

Two authentication methods are supported

  1. basic authentication, using username and password,

  2. SSL certificate authentication, using a ssl client cert file, and optionally a private key file.

To use a certificate, the certificate must have been installed in the ONTAP cluster, and cert authentication must have been enabled.

validate_certs

boolean

If set to no, the SSL certificates will not be validated.

This should only set to False used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

Notes

Note

  • supports check mode.

  • only supports REST. Requires ONTAP 9.6 or later, ONTAP 9.8 or later is recommended.

  • The modules prefixed with na_ontap are built to support the ONTAP storage platform.

  • https is enabled by default and recommended. To enable http on the cluster you must run the following commands ‘set -privilege advanced;’ ‘system services web modify -http-enabled true;’
