junos_interface - Manage Interface on Juniper JUNOS network devices

New in version 2.4.

Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of Interfaces on Juniper JUNOS network devices.

Requirements

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

  • ncclient (>=v0.5.2)

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
active
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Specifies whether or not the configuration is active or deactivated
aggregate
List of Interfaces definitions.
delay Default:
10
Time in seconds to wait before checking for the operational state on remote device. This wait is applicable for operational state argument which are state with values up/down, tx_rate and rx_rate.
description
Description of Interface.
duplex
    Choices:
  • full
  • half
  • auto ←
Interface link status.
enabled
Configure interface link status.
mtu
Maximum size of transmit packet.
name
required
Name of the Interface.
neighbors
Check the operational state of given interface name for LLDP neighbor.
The following suboptions are available.
host
LLDP neighbor host for given interface name.
port
LLDP neighbor port to which given interface name is connected.
provider
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli or connection: netconf.
For more information please see the Junos OS Platform Options guide.

A dict object containing connection details.
username
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME 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.
ssh_keyfile
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is the path to the key used to authenticate the SSH session. 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.
password
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port Default:
22
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. The port value will default to the well known SSH port of 22 (for transport=cli) or port 830 (for transport=netconf) device.
rx_rate
Receiver rate in bits per second (bps).
This is state check parameter only.
Supports conditionals, see Conditionals in Networking Modules
speed
Interface link speed.
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • up
  • down
State of the Interface configuration, up idicates present and operationally up and down indicates present and operationally down
tx_rate
Transmit rate in bits per second (bps).
This is state check parameter only.
Supports conditionals, see Conditionals in Networking Modules

Notes

Note

  • This module requires the netconf system service be enabled on the remote device being managed.
  • Tested against vSRX JUNOS version 15.1X49-D15.4, vqfx-10000 JUNOS Version 15.1X53-D60.4.
  • Recommended connection is netconf. See the Junos OS Platform Options.
  • This module also works with local connections for legacy playbooks.
  • For information on using CLI and netconf see the Junos OS Platform Options guide
  • For more information on using Ansible to manage network devices see the Ansible Network Guide
