quota_limit

string

added in purestorage.flasharray 1.9.0

Can only be set for at most one rule in the same policy.

snap_client_name

string

The customizable portion of the client visible snapshot name.

snap_every

integer

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
