eos_vlan – Manage VLANs on Arista EOS network devices

New in version 2.4.

Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of VLANs on Arista EOS network devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aggregate
-
List of VLANs definitions.
associated_interfaces
-
added in 2.5
This is a intent option and checks the operational state of the for given vlan name for associated interfaces. The name of interface is case sensitive and should be in expanded format and not abbreviated. If the value in the associated_interfaces does not match with the operational state of vlan interfaces on device it will result in failure.
auth_pass
-
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli and become: yes with become_pass.
This option is only required if you are using eAPI.
For more information please see the EOS Platform Options guide.

Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTH_PASS will be used instead.
authorize
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli and become: yes.
This option is only required if you are using eAPI.
For more information please see the EOS Platform Options guide.

Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTHORIZE will be used instead.
delay
-
Default:
10
Delay the play should wait to check for declarative intent params values.
interfaces
-
List of interfaces that should be associated to the VLAN. The name of interface is case sensitive and should be in expanded format and not abbreviated.
name
-
Name of the VLAN.
provider
-
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.
This option is only required if you are using eAPI.
For more information please see the EOS Platform Options guide.

A dict object containing connection details.
auth_pass
-
Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTH_PASS will be used instead.
authorize
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTHORIZE will be used instead.
host
- / required
Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.
password
-
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This is a common argument used for either cli or eapi transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
-
Default:
0 (use common port)
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. This value applies to either cli or eapi. The port value will default to the appropriate transport common port if none is provided in the task. (cli=22, http=80, https=443).
ssh_keyfile
-
Specifies the SSH keyfile to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This argument is only used for cli transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
timeout
-
Default:
10
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.
transport
- / required
    Choices:
  • eapi
  • cli ←
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device.
use_proxy
boolean
added in 2.5
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy will be ignored.
use_ssl
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Configures the transport to use SSL if set to true only when the transport=eapi. If the transport argument is not eapi, this value is ignored.
username
-
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate either the CLI login or the eAPI authentication depending on which transport is used. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If no, SSL certificates will not be validated. This should only be used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates. If the transport argument is not eapi, this value is ignored.
purge
-
Default:
no
Purge VLANs not defined in the aggregate parameter.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • active
  • suspend
State of the VLAN configuration.
vlan_id
- / required
ID of the VLAN.
