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.
qualified_next_hop
Qualified next hop IP of the static route. Qualified next hops allow to associate preference with a particular next-hop address.
qualified_preference
Assign preference for qualified next hop.
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
State of the static route configuration.

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.
