Synopsis

  • Create or destroy users.

Requirements

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

  • Ansible 2.9

  • Python3 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.

  • To enable http on the cluster you must run the following commands ‘set -privilege advanced;’ ‘system services web modify -http-enabled true;’

added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap
This optionally specifies the IP Address of the remote switch.
The remote switch could be a cluster switch monitored by Cluster Switch Health Monitor (CSHM) or a Fiber Channel (FC) switch monitored by Metro Cluster Health Monitor (MCC-HM).
This is applicable only for a remote SNMPv3 user i.e. only if user is a remote (non-local) user, application is snmp and authentication method is usm.
replace_existing_apps_and_methods
string
added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap
    Choices:
  • always
  • auto ←
If the user already exists, the current applications and authentications methods are replaced when state=present.
If the user already exists, the current applications and authentications methods are removed when state=absent.
When using application_dicts or REST, this the only supported behavior.
When using application_strs and ZAPI, this is the behavior when this option is set to always.
When using application_strs and ZAPI, if the option is set to auto, applications that are not listed are not removed.
When using application_strs and ZAPI, if the option is set to auto, authentication mehods that are not listed are not removed.
auto preserve the existing behavior for backward compatibility, but note that REST and ZAPI have inconsistent behavior.
This is another reason to recommend to use application_dicts.
role_name
string
The name of the role. Required when state=present
set_password
string
Password for the user account.
It is ignored for creating snmp users, but is required for creating non-snmp users.

  • absent
Whether the specified user should exist or not.
use_rest
string
Default:
"auto"
REST API if supported by the target system for all the resources and attributes the module requires. Otherwise will revert to ZAPI.
always -- will always use the REST API
never -- will always use the ZAPI
auto -- will try to use the REST Api
username
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.

aliases: user
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
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.
vserver
string / required
The name of the vserver to use.
With REST, for cluster scope, use a vserver entry with no value.

aliases: svm
