List of linked entities, which should be fetched along with the main entity.

Examples

# Examples don't contain the auth parameter for simplicity,
# look at the ovirt_auth module to see how to reuse authentication.

- name: Return all events
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_event_info:
  register: result

- name: Return the last 10 events
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_event_info:
    max: 10
  register: result

- name: Return all events of type alert
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_event_info:
    search: "severity=alert"
  register: result
- ansible.builtin.debug:
    msg: "{{ result.ovirt_events }}"

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key Returned Description
ovirt_events
list / elements=string
