New in version 2.5.

Synopsis

  • Bind static paths to EPGs on Cisco ACI fabrics.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
ap
string
Name of an existing application network profile, that will contain the EPGs.

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.

aliases: cert_name
deploy_immediacy
string
    Choices:
  • immediate
  • lazy
The Deployement Immediacy of Static EPG on PC, VPC or Interface.
The APIC defaults to lazy when unset during creation.
description
string
added in 2.7
Description for the static path to EPG binding.

aliases: descr
encap_id
integer
The encapsulation ID associating the epg with the interface path.
This acts as the secondary encap_id when using micro-segmentation.
Accepted values are any valid encap ID for specified encap, currently ranges between 1 and 4096.

aliases: vlan, vlan_id
epg
string
The name of the end point group.

aliases: epg_name
extpaths
integer
The extpaths integer value part of the tDn.
extpaths is only used if interface_type is fex.
Usually something like 1011.
host
string / required
IP Address or hostname of APIC resolvable by Ansible control host.

aliases: hostname
interface
string
The interface string value part of the tDn.
Usually a policy group like test-IntPolGrp or an interface of the following format 1/7 depending on interface_type.
interface_mode
string
    Choices:
  • 802.1p
  • access
  • native
  • regular
  • tagged
  • trunk
  • untagged
Determines how layer 2 tags will be read from and added to frames.
Values 802.1p and native are identical.
Values access and untagged are identical.
Values regular, tagged and trunk are identical.
The APIC defaults to trunk when unset during creation.

aliases: interface_mode_name, mode
interface_type
string
    Choices:
  • fex
  • port_channel
  • switch_port ←
  • vpc
The type of interface for the static EPG deployement.
leafs
list
The switch ID(s) that the interface belongs to.
When interface_type is switch_port, port_channel, or fex, then leafs is a string of the leaf ID.
When interface_type is vpc, then leafs is a list with both leaf IDs.
The leafs value is usually something like '101' or '101-102' depending on connection_type.

aliases: leaves, nodes, paths, switches
output_level
string
    Choices:
  • debug
  • info
  • normal ←
Influence the output of this ACI module.
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.
pod_id
integer
The pod number part of the tDn.
pod_id is usually an integer below 10.

aliases: pod, pod_number
port
integer
Port number to be used for REST connection.
The default value depends on parameter use_ssl.
primary_encap_id
integer
Determines the primary encapsulation ID associating the epg with the interface path when using micro-segmentation.
Accepted values are any valid encap ID for specified encap, currently ranges between 1 and 4096.

aliases: primary_vlan, primary_vlan_id
private_key
string / required
Either a PEM-formatted private key file or the private key content used for signature-based authentication.
This value also influences the default certificate_name that is used.
This option is mutual exclusive with password. If password is provided too, it will be ignored.

aliases: cert_key
state
string
    Choices:
  • absent
  • 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.

aliases: tenant_name
timeout
integer
Default:
30
The socket level timeout in seconds.
use_proxy
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, it will not use a proxy, even if one is defined in an environment variable on the target hosts.
use_ssl
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, an HTTP connection will be used instead of the default HTTPS connection.
username
string
Default:
"admin"
The username to use for authentication.

aliases: user
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, SSL certificates will not be validated.
This should only set to no when used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.

Notes

Note

  • The tenant, ap, epg used must exist before using this module in your playbook. The aci_tenant, aci_ap, aci_epg modules can be used for this.
