Default value is set by OVIRT_PASSWORD environment variable.

timeout

integer

Number of seconds to wait for response.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

group_name

string

Name of the group to manage.

Note that if group does not exist in the system this module will fail, you should ensure the group exists by using ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_groups module.

namespace

string

Namespace of the authorization provider, where user/group resides.

nested_attributes

list / elements=string

Specifies list of the attributes which should be fetched from the API.

This parameter apply only when fetch_nested is true.

object_id

string

ID of the object where the permissions should be managed.

object_name

string

Name of the object where the permissions should be managed.

object_type

string

The object where the permissions should be managed.

Choices:

  • cpu_profile

  • data_center

  • disk

  • disk_profile

  • host

  • network

  • storage_domain

  • system

  • template

  • vm ← (default)

  • vm_pool

  • vnic_profile

  • mac_pool

poll_interval

integer

Number of the seconds the module waits until another poll request on entity status is sent.

Default: 3

quota_name

string

Default: “UserRole”

state

string

Should the permission be present/absent.

Choices:

  • absent

  • present ← (default)

timeout

integer

The amount of time in seconds the module should wait for the instance to get into desired state.

Default: 180

user_name

string

Username of the user to manage. In most LDAPs it’s uid of the user, but in Active Directory you must specify UPN of the user.

Note that if user does not exist in the system this module will fail, you should ensure the user exists by using ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_users module.

wait

boolean

yes if the module should wait for the entity to get into desired state.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

Notes

Note

  • 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:

- name: Add user user1 from authorization provider example.com-authz
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_permission:
    user_name: user1
    authz_name: example.com-authz
    object_type: vm
    object_name: myvm
    role: UserVmManager

- name: Remove permission from user
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_permission:
    state: absent
    user_name: user1
    authz_name: example.com-authz
    object_type: cluster
    object_name: mycluster
    role: ClusterAdmin

- name: Assign QuotaConsumer role to user
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_permissions:
    state: present
    user_name: user1
    authz_name: example.com-authz
    object_type: data_center
    object_name: mydatacenter
    quota_name: myquota
    role: QuotaConsumer

- name: Assign QuotaConsumer role to group
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_permissions:
    state: present
    group_name: group1
    authz_name: example.com-authz
    object_type: data_center
    object_name: mydatacenter
    quota_name: myquota
    role: QuotaConsumer

- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_permission:
    user_name: user1
    authz_name: example.com-authz
    object_type: mac_pool
    object_name: Default
    role: MacPoolUser

Return Values

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

Returned: On success if permission is found.

Sample: “7de90f31-222c-436c-a1ca-7e655bd5b60c”
