Examples

- name: interface module test
  hosts: cloudengine
  connection: local
  gather_facts: no
  vars:
    cli:
      host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
      port: "{{ ansible_ssh_port }}"
      username: "{{ username }}"
      password: "{{ password }}"
      transport: cli

  tasks:
  - name: Ensure an interface is a Layer 3 port and that it has the proper description
    ce_interface:
      interface: 10GE1/0/22
      description: 'Configured by Ansible'
      mode: layer3
      provider: '{{ cli }}'

  - name: Admin down an interface
    ce_interface:
      interface: 10GE1/0/22
      admin_state: down
      provider: '{{ cli }}'

  - name: Remove all tunnel interfaces
    ce_interface:
      interface_type: tunnel
      state: absent
      provider: '{{ cli }}'

  - name: Remove all logical interfaces
    ce_interface:
      interface_type: '{{ item }}'
      state: absent
      provider: '{{ cli }}'
    with_items:
      - loopback
      - eth-trunk
      - nve

  - name: Admin up all 10GE interfaces
    ce_interface:
      interface_type: 10GE
      admin_state: up
      provider: '{{ cli }}'
