Synopsis

Requirements

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

  • python >= 2.7

Parameters

Parameter

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 sensu.sensu_go 1.3.0

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 sensu.sensu_go 1.5.0

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

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.

Default: "P@ssw0rd!"

url

string

Location of the Sensu backend API. If this is not set the value of the SENSU_URL environment variable will be checked.

Default: "http://localhost:8080"

user

string

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.

Default: "admin"

verify

boolean

added in sensu.sensu_go 1.5.0

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.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

filters

list / elements=string

List of filters to use when determining whether to pass the check result to this handler.

host

string

The socket host address (IP or hostname) to connect to.

Required if state is present.

labels

dictionary

Custom metadata fields that can be accessed within Sensu, as key/value pairs.

mutator

string

Mutator to call for transforming the check result before passing it to this handler.

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

RBAC namespace to operate in. If this is not set the value of the SENSU_NAMESPACE environment variable will be used.

Default: "default"

port

integer

The socket port to connect to.

Required if state is present.

state

string

Target state of the Sensu object.

Choices:

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "absent"

timeout

integer

Timeout for handler execution.

type

string

The handler type.

Required if state is present.

Choices:

  • "tcp"

  • "udp"
