Note

This plugin is part of the netapp.ontap collection (version 21.10.0).

To install it use: ansible-galaxy collection install netapp.ontap.

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

New in version 20.4.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Call a ZAPI on ONTAP.

  • Cluster ZAPIs are run using a cluster admin account.

  • Vserver ZAPIs can be run using a vsadmin account or using vserver tunneling (cluster admin with vserver option).

  • In case of success, a json dictionary is returned as response.

  • In case of a ZAPI error, status, errno, reason are set to help with diagnosing the issue,

  • and the call is reported as an error (‘failed’).

  • Other errors (eg connection issues) are reported as Ansible error.

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;’

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.
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
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Enable and disable https.
Ignored when using REST as only https is supported.
Ignored when using SSL certificate authentication as it requires SSL.
key_filepath
string
added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap
path to SSL client key file.
ontapi
integer
The ontap api version to use
password
string
Password for the specified user.

aliases: pass
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
if provided, forces vserver tunneling. username identifies a cluster admin account.
zapi
dictionary / required
A dictionary for the zapi and arguments.
An XML tag <tag>value</tag> is a dictionary with tag as the key.
Value can be another dictionary, a list of dictionaries, a string, or nothing.
eg <tag/> is represented as tag:
A single zapi can be called at a time. Ansible warns if duplicate keys are found and only uses the last entry.

Notes

Note

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