Synopsis

  • Acquires and associates a public IP to an account or project.

  • Due to API limitations this is not an idempotent call, so be sure to only conditionally call this when state=present.

  • Tagging the IP address can also make the call idempotent.

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

  • python >= 2.6

  • cs >= 0.9.0
