ce_facts – Gets facts about HUAWEI CloudEngine switches

New in version 2.4.

Synopsis

  • Collects facts from CloudEngine devices running the CloudEngine operating system. Fact collection is supported over Cli transport. This module prepends all of the base network fact keys with ansible_net_<fact>. The facts module will always collect a base set of facts from the device and can enable or disable collection of additional facts.

Parameters
