    Choices:

aliases: app_profile, app_profile_name
certificate_name
string
The X.509 certificate name attached to the APIC AAA user used for signature-based authentication.
If a private_key filename was provided, this defaults to the private_key basename, without extension.
If PEM-formatted content was provided for private_key, this defaults to the username value.

deploy_immediacy

    Choices:

domain_type
string
    Choices:
  • l2dom
  • phys

Specify whether the Domain is a physical (phys), a virtual (vmm) or an L2 external domain association (l2dom).

aliases: type
encap
integer
The VLAN encapsulation for the EPG when binding a VMM Domain with static encap_mode.
This acts as the secondary encap when using useg.
Accepted values range between 1 and 4096.

normal means the standard output, incl. current dict
info adds informational output, incl. previous, proposed and sent dicts
debug adds debugging output, incl. filter_string, method, response, status and url information
password
string / required
The password to use for authentication.
This option is mutual exclusive with private_key. If private_key is provided too, it will be used instead.
port
integer
Port number to be used for REST connection.

Determines the primary VLAN ID when using useg.
Accepted values range between 1 and 4096.
private_key

This option is mutual exclusive with password. If password is provided too, it will be ignored.

aliases: cert_key
resolution_immediacy
string
    Choices:

  • lazy
  • pre-provision
Determines when the policies should be resolved and available.
The APIC defaults to lazy when unset during creation.
state
string

  • present ←
  • query
Use present or absent for adding or removing.
Use query for listing an object or multiple objects.
tenant
string
Name of an existing tenant.

timeout
integer
Default:
30
The socket level timeout in seconds.
use_proxy
boolean
    Choices:
  • no

vm_provider
string
    Choices:
  • cloudfoundry
  • kubernetes
  • microsoft
  • openshift
  • openstack
  • redhat
  • vmware
The VM platform for VMM Domains.
Support for Kubernetes was added in ACI v3.0.
Support for CloudFoundry, OpenShift and Red Hat was added in ACI v3.1.

Notes

Note

  • The tenant, ap, epg, and domain used must exist before using this module in your playbook. The aci_tenant aci_ap, aci_epg aci_domain modules can be used for this.
  • OpenStack VMM domains must not be created using this module. The OpenStack VMM domain is created directly by the Cisco APIC Neutron plugin as part of the installation and configuration. This module can be used to query status of an OpenStack VMM domain.
