digital_ocean – Create/delete a droplet/SSH_key in DigitalOcean

DEPRECATED

Removed in Ansible:
 version: 2.12
Why:Updated module to remove external dependency with increased functionality.
Alternative:Use digital_ocean_droplet instead.

Synopsis

  • Create/delete a droplet in DigitalOcean and optionally wait for it to be ‘running’, or deploy an SSH key.

Requirements

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

  • python >= 2.6
  • dopy

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_token
-
DigitalOcean api token.
backups_enabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Optional, Boolean, enables backups for your droplet.
command
-
    Choices:
  • droplet ←
  • ssh
Which target you want to operate on.
id
-
Numeric, the droplet id you want to operate on.

aliases: droplet_id
image_id
-
This is the slug of the image you would like the droplet created with.
ipv6
boolean
added in 2.2
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Optional, Boolean, enable IPv6 for your droplet.
name
-
String, this is the name of the droplet - must be formatted by hostname rules, or the name of a SSH key.
private_networking
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Bool, add an additional, private network interface to droplet for inter-droplet communication.
region_id
-
This is the slug of the region you would like your server to be created in.
size_id
-
This is the slug of the size you would like the droplet created with.
ssh_key_ids
-
Optional, array of SSH key (numeric) ID that you would like to be added to the server.
ssh_pub_key
-
The public SSH key you want to add to your account.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • active
  • absent
  • deleted
Indicate desired state of the target.
unique_name
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Bool, require unique hostnames. By default, DigitalOcean allows multiple hosts with the same name. Setting this to "yes" allows only one host per name. Useful for idempotence.
user_data
-
added in 2.0
opaque blob of data which is made available to the droplet
virtio
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Bool, turn on virtio driver in droplet for improved network and storage I/O.
wait
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Wait for the droplet to be in state 'running' before returning. If wait is "no" an ip_address may not be returned.
wait_timeout
-
Default:
300
How long before wait gives up, in seconds.

Notes

Note

  • Two environment variables can be used, DO_API_KEY and DO_API_TOKEN. They both refer to the v2 token.
  • As of Ansible 1.9.5 and 2.0, Version 2 of the DigitalOcean API is used, this removes client_id and api_key options in favor of api_token.
  • If you are running Ansible 1.9.4 or earlier you might not be able to use the included version of this module as the API version used has been retired. Upgrade Ansible or, if unable to, try downloading the latest version of this module from github and putting it into a ‘library’ directory.

Examples

# Ensure a SSH key is present
# If a key matches this name, will return the ssh key id and changed = False
# If no existing key matches this name, a new key is created, the ssh key id is returned and changed = False

- digital_ocean:
    state: present
    command: ssh
    name: my_ssh_key
    ssh_pub_key: 'ssh-rsa AAAA...'
    api_token: XXX

# Create a new Droplet
# Will return the droplet details including the droplet id (used for idempotence)

- digital_ocean:
    state: present
    command: droplet
    name: mydroplet
    api_token: XXX
    size_id: 2gb
    region_id: ams2
    image_id: fedora-19-x64
    wait_timeout: 500
  register: my_droplet

- debug:
    msg: "ID is {{ my_droplet.droplet.id }}"

- debug:
    msg: "IP is {{ my_droplet.droplet.ip_address }}"

# Ensure a droplet is present
# If droplet id already exist, will return the droplet details and changed = False
# If no droplet matches the id, a new droplet will be created and the droplet details (including the new id) are returned, changed = True.

- digital_ocean:
    state: present
    command: droplet
    id: 123
    name: mydroplet
    api_token: XXX
    size_id: 2gb
    region_id: ams2
    image_id: fedora-19-x64
    wait_timeout: 500

# Create a droplet with ssh key
# The ssh key id can be passed as argument at the creation of a droplet (see ssh_key_ids).
# Several keys can be added to ssh_key_ids as id1,id2,id3
# The keys are used to connect as root to the droplet.

- digital_ocean:
    state: present
    ssh_key_ids: 123,456
    name: mydroplet
    api_token: XXX
    size_id: 2gb
    region_id: ams2
    image_id: fedora-19-x64
