netapp.ontap.na_ontap_wait_for_condition module – NetApp ONTAP wait_for_condition. Loop over a get status request until a condition is met.

Note

This module is part of the netapp.ontap collection (version 22.0.1).

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. You need further requirements to be able to use this module, see Requirements for details.

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

New in netapp.ontap 20.8.0

Synopsis

  • Loop over an ONTAP get status request until a condition is satisfied.

  • Report a timeout error if timeout is exceeded while waiting for the condition.

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

attributes

dictionary

a dictionary of custom attributes for the condition.

sp_upgrade, sp_version require node.

sp_version requires expected_version.

snapmirror_relationship requires destination_path and expected_state or expected_transfer_state to match the condition(s).

cert_filepath

string

added in netapp.ontap 20.6.0

path to SSL client cert file (.pem).

not supported with python 2.6.

conditions

list / elements=string / required

one or more conditions to match

state and/or transfer_state for snapmirror_relationship,

is_in_progress for sp_upgrade,

firmware_version for sp_version.

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.

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:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

key_filepath

string

added in netapp.ontap 20.6.0

path to SSL client key file.

name

string / required

The name of the event to check for.

snapmirror_relationship was added in 21.22.0.

Choices:

  • "snapmirror_relationship"

  • "sp_upgrade"

  • "sp_version"

ontapi

integer

The ontap api version to use

password

aliases: pass

string

Password for the specified user.

polling_interval

integer

how ofen to check for the conditions, in seconds.

Default: 5

state

string

whether the conditions should be present or absent.

if present, the module exits when any of the conditions is observed.

if absent, the module exits with success when None of the conditions is observed.

Choices:

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "absent"

timeout

integer

how long to wait for the conditions, in seconds.

Default: 180

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:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

Notes

Note

  • 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;’
