Synopsis

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • python >= 2.7

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
annotations
dictionary
Custom metadata fields with fewer restrictions, as key/value pairs.
These are preserved by Sensu but not accessible as tokens or identifiers, and are mainly intended for use with external tools.
auth
dictionary
Authentication parameters. Can define each of them with ENV as well.
api_key
string
added in 1.3.0 of sensu.sensu_go
The API key that should be used when authenticating. If this is not set, the value of the SENSU_API_KEY environment variable will be checked.
This replaces auth.user and auth.password parameters.
For more information about the API key, refer to the official Sensu documentation at https://docs.sensu.io/sensu-go/latest/guides/use-apikey-feature/.
ca_path
path
added in 1.5.0 of sensu.sensu_go
Path to the CA bundle that should be used to validate the backend certificate.
If this parameter is not set, module will use the CA bundle that python is using.
It is also possible to set this parameter via the SENSU_CA_PATH environment variable.
password
string
Default:
The Sensu user's password. If this is not set the value of the SENSU_PASSWORD environment variable will be checked.
This parameter is ignored if the auth.api_key parameter is set.
url
string
Default:
"http://localhost:8080"
Location of the Sensu backend API. If this is not set the value of the SENSU_URL environment variable will be checked.
user
string
Default:
"admin"
The username to use for connecting to the Sensu API. If this is not set the value of the SENSU_USER environment variable will be checked.
This parameter is ignored if the auth.api_key parameter is set.
verify
boolean
added in 1.5.0 of sensu.sensu_go
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Flag that controls the certificate validation.
If you are using self-signed certificates, you can set this parameter to false.
ONLY USE THIS PARAMETER IN DEVELOPMENT SCENARIOS! In you use self-signed certificates in production, see the auth.ca_path parameter.
It is also possible to set this parameter via the SENSU_VERIFY environment variable.
check_hooks
dictionary
A mapping of response codes to hooks which will be run by the agent when that code is returned.
Note that the structure of this parameter is a bit different from the one described at https://docs.sensu.io/sensu-go/latest/reference/checks/#check-hooks-attribute.
See check hooks example below for more information on exact mapping structure.
command
string
Check command to run.
Required if state is present.
cron
string
Schedule check requests using crontab syntax.
Cannot be used when interval option is used.
env_vars
dictionary
A mapping of environment variable names and values to use with command execution.
handlers
list / elements=string
List of handlers which receive check results.
high_flap_threshold
integer
High flap threshold.
interval
integer
Check request interval.
Cannot be used when cron option is used.
labels
dictionary
Custom metadata fields that can be accessed within Sensu, as key/value pairs.
low_flap_threshold
integer
Low flap threshold.
name
string / required
The Sensu resource's name. This name (in combination with the namespace where applicable) uniquely identifies the resource that Ansible operates on.
If the resource with selected name already exists, Ansible module will update it to match the specification in the task.
Consult the name metadata attribute specification in the upstream docs on https://docs.sensu.io/sensu-go/latest/reference/ for more details about valid names and other restrictions.
namespace
string
Default:
"default"
RBAC namespace to operate in. If this is not set the value of the SENSU_NAMESPACE environment variable will be used.
output_metric_format
string
    Choices:
  • graphite_plaintext
  • influxdb_line
  • nagios_perfdata
  • opentsdb_line
Enable parsing of metrics in the specified format from this check's output.
output_metric_handlers
list / elements=string
List of handlers which receive check results. I'm not sure why this exists.
proxy_entity_name
string
Entity name to associate this check with instead of the agent it ran on.
proxy_requests
dictionary
Allows you to assign the check to run for multiple entities according to their entity_attributes.
entity_attributes
list / elements=string
List of attribute checks for determining which proxy entities this check should be scheduled against.
splay
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enables or disables splaying of check request scheduling.
splay_coverage
integer
Percentage of the interval over which to splay checks.
publish
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enables or disables scheduled publication of check requests.
round_robin
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
An array of environment variables to use with command execution.
runtime_assets
list / elements=string
List of runtime assets required to run the check.

List of secrets that are available to the command.
name
string / required
added in 1.6.0 of sensu.sensu_go
Variable name that will contain the sensitive data.
secret
string / required
added in 1.6.0 of sensu.sensu_go

    # The upstream JSON payload for the hooks below would look like this:
    #
    #   "check_hooks": [
    #     {"0": ["passing-hook", "always-run-this-hook"]},
    #     {"critical": ["failing-hook", "always-run-this-hook"]}
    #   ]
    #
    # Ansible task simplifies this structure into a simple mapping:
    check_hooks:
      "0":
        - passing-hook
        - always-run-this-hook
      critical:
        - failing-hook
        - always-run-this-hook

- name: Remove check
  sensu.sensu_go.check:
    name: my-check
    state: absent
