Requirements

  • python >= 2.7
  • azure >= 2.0.0

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
ad_user
string
Active Directory username. Use when authenticating with an Active Directory user rather than service principal.
adfs_authority_url
string
added in 2.6
Azure AD authority url. Use when authenticating with Username/password, and has your own ADFS authority.
api_profile
string
added in 2.5
Default:
"latest"
Selects an API profile to use when communicating with Azure services. Default value of latest is appropriate for public clouds; future values will allow use with Azure Stack.
auth_source
string
added in 2.5
    Choices:
  • auto
  • cli
  • credential_file
  • env
  • msi
Controls the source of the credentials to use for authentication.
If not specified, ANSIBLE_AZURE_AUTH_SOURCE environment variable will be used and default to auto if variable is not defined.
auto will follow the default precedence of module parameters -> environment variables -> default profile in credential file ~/.azure/credentials.
When set to cli, the credentials will be sources from the default Azure CLI profile.
Can also be set via the ANSIBLE_AZURE_AUTH_SOURCE environment variable.
When set to msi, the host machine must be an azure resource with an enabled MSI extension. subscription_id or the environment variable AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID can be used to identify the subscription ID if the resource is granted access to more than one subscription, otherwise the first subscription is chosen.
The msi was added in Ansible 2.6.
cert_validation_mode
string
added in 2.5
    Choices:
  • ignore
  • validate
Controls the certificate validation behavior for Azure endpoints. By default, all modules will validate the server certificate, but when an HTTPS proxy is in use, or against Azure Stack, it may be necessary to disable this behavior by passing ignore. Can also be set via credential file profile or the AZURE_CERT_VALIDATION environment variable.
client_id
string
Azure client ID. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.
cloud_environment
string
added in 2.4
Default:
"AzureCloud"
For cloud environments other than the US public cloud, the environment name (as defined by Azure Python SDK, eg, AzureChinaCloud, AzureUSGovernment), or a metadata discovery endpoint URL (required for Azure Stack). Can also be set via credential file profile or the AZURE_CLOUD_ENVIRONMENT environment variable.
name
-
The name of the container instance.
password
-
Active Directory user password. Use when authenticating with an Active Directory user rather than service principal.
profile
string
Security profile found in ~/.azure/credentials file.
resource_group
- / required
The name of the resource group.
secret
string
Azure client secret. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.
subscription_id
string
Your Azure subscription Id.
tags
-
Limit results by providing a list of tags. Format tags as 'key' or 'key:value'.
tenant
string
Azure tenant ID. Use when authenticating with a Service Principal.

Notes

Note

  • For authentication with Azure you can pass parameters, set environment variables, use a profile stored in ~/.azure/credentials, or log in before you run your tasks or playbook with az login.
  • Authentication is also possible using a service principal or Active Directory user.
  • To authenticate via service principal, pass subscription_id, client_id, secret and tenant or set environment variables AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID, AZURE_CLIENT_ID, AZURE_SECRET and AZURE_TENANT.
  • To authenticate via Active Directory user, pass ad_user and password, or set AZURE_AD_USER and AZURE_PASSWORD in the environment.
  • Alternatively, credentials can be stored in ~/.azure/credentials. This is an ini file containing a [default] section and the following keys: subscription_id, client_id, secret and tenant or subscription_id, ad_user and password. It is also possible to add additional profiles. Specify the profile by passing profile or setting AZURE_PROFILE in the environment.
