vyos.vyos.vyos_l3_interfaces module – L3 interfaces resource module

Note

This module is part of the vyos.vyos collection (version 3.0.1).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install vyos.vyos.

To use it in a playbook, specify: vyos.vyos.vyos_l3_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of vyos.vyos

Synopsis

  • This module manages the L3 interface attributes on VyOS network devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

The provided L3 interfaces configuration.

ipv4

list / elements=dictionary

List of IPv4 addresses of the interface.

address

string

IPv4 address of the interface.

ipv6

list / elements=dictionary

List of IPv6 addresses of the interface.

address

string

IPv6 address of the interface.

name

string / required

Full name of the interface, e.g. eth0, eth1.

vifs

list / elements=dictionary

Virtual sub-interfaces L3 configurations.

ipv4

list / elements=dictionary

List of IPv4 addresses of the virtual interface.

address

string

IPv4 address of the virtual interface.

ipv6

list / elements=dictionary

List of IPv6 addresses of the virtual interface.

address

string

IPv6 address of the virtual interface.

vlan_id

integer

Identifier for the virtual sub-interface.

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the VyOS device by executing the command show configuration commands | grep -e eth[2,3].

The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into Ansible structured data as per the resource module’s argspec and the value is then returned in the parsed key within the result.

state

string

The state of the configuration after module completion.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • parsed

  • gathered

  • rendered
