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.
deregister
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If the entity should be removed when it stops sending keepalive messages.
deregistration_handler
string
The name of the handler to be called when an entity is deregistered.
entity_class
string
Entity class. Standard classes are proxy and agent, but you can use whatever you want.
Required if state is present.
labels
dictionary
Custom metadata fields that can be accessed within Sensu, as key/value pairs.
last_seen
integer
Timestamp the entity was last seen, in seconds since the Unix epoch.
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.
redact
list / elements=string
List of items to redact from log messages. If a value is provided, it overwrites the default list of items to be redacted.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Target state of the Sensu object.
subscriptions
list / elements=string
List of subscriptions for the entity.
system
dictionary
System information about the entity, such as operating system and platform. See https://docs.sensu.io/sensu-go/5.13/reference/entities/#system-attributes for more information.
user
string
Sensu RBAC username used by the entity. Agent entities require get, list, create, update, and delete permissions for events across all namespaces.
