To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install sensu.sensu\_go. You need further requirements to be able to use this module, see Requirements for details.

To use it in a playbook, specify: sensu.sensu_go.user.

New in sensu.sensu_go 1.0.0

Synopsis

Requirements

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

  • bcrypt (when managing Sensu Go 5.21.0 or newer)

  • python >= 2.7

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

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)

groups

list / elements=string

List of groups user belongs to.

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.

password

string

Password for the user.

Required if user with a desired name does not exist yet on the backend and password_hash is not set.

If both password and password_hash are set, password_hash is ignored and calculated from the password if required.

password_hash

string

added in sensu.sensu_go 1.8.0

Bcrypt password hash for the user.

Use sensuctl user hash-password PASSWORD to generate a hash.

Required if user with a desired name does not exist yet on the backend and password is not set.

If both password and password_hash are set, password_hash is ignored and calculated from the password if required.

Sensu Go < 5.21.0 does not support creating/updating users using hashed passwords. Use password parameter if you need to manage such Sensu Go installations.

At the moment, change detection does not work properly when using password hashes because the Sensu Go backend does not expose enough information via its API.

state

string

Desired state of the user.

Users cannot actually be deleted, only deactivated.

Choices:

  • "enabled" ← (default)

  • "disabled"
