bigip_routedomain - Manage route domains on a BIG-IP

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Manage route domains on a BIG-IP.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • f5-sdk >= 3.0.16

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
bwc_policy
The bandwidth controller for the route domain.
connection_limit
The maximum number of concurrent connections allowed for the route domain. Setting this to 0 turns off connection limits.
description
Specifies descriptive text that identifies the route domain.
flow_eviction_policy
The eviction policy to use with this route domain. Apply an eviction policy to provide customized responses to flow overflows and slow flows on the route domain.
id

This field is required when creating a new route domain.
In version 2.5, this value is no longer used to reference a route domain when making modifications to it (for instance during update and delete operations). Instead, the name parameter is used. In version 2.6, the name value will become a required parameter.
name
(added in 2.5)
The name of the route domain.
parent
Specifies the route domain the system searches when it cannot find a route in the configured domain.
partition

Notes

Note

  • For more information on using Ansible to manage F5 Networks devices see https://www.ansible.com/integrations/networks/f5.
  • Requires the f5-sdk Python package on the host. This is as easy as pip install f5-sdk.
  • Requires BIG-IP software version >= 12.
  • The F5 modules only manipulate the running configuration of the F5 product. To ensure that BIG-IP specific configuration persists to disk, be sure to include at least one task that uses the bigip_config module to save the running configuration. Refer to the module’s documentation for the correct usage of the module to save your running configuration.
