Notes

Note

  • This module returns a variable ovirt_permissions, which contains a list of permissions. You need to register the result with the register keyword to use it.

  • In order to use this module you have to install oVirt Python SDK. To ensure it’s installed with correct version you can create the following task: pip: name=ovirt-engine-sdk-python version=4.4.0

Examples

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

# Gather information about all permissions of user with username C(john):
- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_permission_info:
    user_name: john
    authz_name: example.com-authz
  register: result
- ansible.builtin.debug:
    msg: "{{ result.ovirt_permissions }}"

Return Values

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

Key Returned Description
ovirt_permissions
list / elements=string
On success.
List of dictionaries describing the permissions. Permission attributes are mapped to dictionary keys, all permissions attributes can be found at following url: http://ovirt.github.io/ovirt-engine-api-model/master/#types/permission.
