cloudscale_floating_ip – Manages floating IPs on the cloudscale.ch IaaS service

New in version 2.5.

Synopsis

  • Create, assign and delete floating IPs on the cloudscale.ch IaaS service.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_timeout
-
Default:
30
Timeout in seconds for calls to the cloudscale.ch API.
api_token
-
cloudscale.ch API token.
This can also be passed in the CLOUDSCALE_API_TOKEN environment variable.
ip
-
Floating IP address to change.
Required to assign the IP to a different server or if state is absent.

aliases: network
ip_version
-
    Choices:
  • 4
  • 6
IP protocol version of the floating IP.
prefix_length
-
    Choices:
  • 56
Only valid if ip_version is 6.
Prefix length for the IPv6 network. Currently only a prefix of /56 can be requested. If no prefix_length is present, a single address is created.
reverse_ptr
-
Reverse PTR entry for this address.
You cannot set a reverse PTR entry for IPv6 floating networks. Reverse PTR entries are only allowed for single addresses.
server
-
UUID of the server assigned to this floating IP.
Required unless state is absent.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
State of the floating IP.

Notes

Note

  • To create a new floating IP at least the ip_version and server options are required.
  • Once a floating_ip is created all parameters except server are read-only.
  • It’s not possible to request a floating IP without associating it with a server at the same time.
  • This module requires the ipaddress python library. This library is included in Python since version 3.3. It is available as a module on PyPI for earlier versions.
  • Instead of the api_token parameter the CLOUDSCALE_API_TOKEN environment variable can be used.
  • All operations are performed using the cloudscale.ch public API v1.
  • For details consult the full API documentation: https://www.cloudscale.ch/en/api/v1.
  • A valid API token is required for all operations. You can create as many tokens as you like using the cloudscale.ch control panel at https://control.cloudscale.ch.
