aci_switch_leaf_selector – Bind leaf selectors to switch policy leaf profiles (infra:LeafS, infra:NodeBlk, infra:RsAccNodePGrep)

New in version 2.5.

Synopsis

  • Bind leaf selectors (with node block range and policy group) to switch policy leaf profiles on Cisco ACI fabrics.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
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
description
string
The description to assign to the leaf.
from
integer
Start of Node Block range.

aliases: node_blk_range_from, from_range, range_from
host
string / required
IP Address or hostname of APIC resolvable by Ansible control host.

aliases: hostname
leaf
string
Name of Leaf Selector.

aliases: name, leaf_name, leaf_profile_leaf_name, leaf_selector_name
leaf_node_blk
string
Name of Node Block range to be added to Leaf Selector of given Leaf Profile.

aliases: leaf_node_blk_name, node_blk_name
leaf_node_blk_description
string
The description to assign to the leaf_node_blk
leaf_profile
string
Name of the Leaf Profile to which we add a Selector.

aliases: leaf_profile_name
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.
policy_group
string
Name of the Policy Group to be added to Leaf Selector of given Leaf Profile.

aliases: name, policy_group_name
port
integer
Port number to be used for REST connection.
The default value depends on parameter use_ssl.
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.
timeout
integer
Default:
30
The socket level timeout in seconds.
to
integer
Start of Node Block range.

aliases: node_blk_range_to, to_range, range_to
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

  • This module is to be used with aci_switch_policy_leaf_profile. One first creates a leaf profile (infra:NodeP) and then creates an associated selector (infra:LeafS),
