Parameters

Parameter

Comments

api_token

string

FlashArray API token for admin privileged user.

enabled

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

eradicate

boolean

Define whether to eradicate the protection group on delete and leave in trash.

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

fa_url

string

FlashArray management IPv4 address or Hostname.

host

list / elements=string

List of existing hosts to add to protection group.

Note that hostnames are case-sensitive however FlashArray hostnames are unique and ignore case - you cannot have hosta and hostA

hostgroup

list / elements=string

List of existing hostgroups to add to protection group.

Note that hostgroups are case-sensitive however FlashArray hostgroup names are unique and ignore case - you cannot have groupa and groupA

name

aliases: pgroup

string / required

The name of the protection group.

rename

string

Rename a protection group

If the source protection group is in a Pod or Volume Group ‘container’ you only need to provide the new protection group name in the same ‘container’

safe_mode

boolean

added in purestorage.flasharray 1.13.0

Enables SafeMode restrictions on the protection group

Once set disabling this can only be performed by Pure Technical Support

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

state

string

Define whether the protection group should exist or not.

Choices:

  • "absent"

  • "present" ← (default)

target

list / elements=string

List of remote arrays or offload target for replication protection group to connect to.

Note that all replicated protection groups are asynchronous.

Target arrays or offload targets must already be connected to the source array.

Maximum number of targets per Portection Group is 4, assuming your configuration suppors this.

volume

list / elements=string

List of existing volumes to add to protection group.

Note that volume are case-sensitive however FlashArray volume names are unique and ignore case - you cannot have volumea and volumeA

Notes

Note

  • This module requires the purestorage and py-pure-client Python libraries

  • Additional Python librarues may be required for specific modules.

  • You must set PUREFA_URL and PUREFA_API environment variables if fa_url and api_token arguments are not passed to the module directly
