Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_key
string
Token used to authenticate with the API. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_API_KEY environment variable.
ca_cert
path
Path to a CA certificate used to authenticate with the API. The full certificate chain must be provided to avoid certificate validation errors. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_SSL_CA_CERT environment variable.

aliases: ssl_ca_cert
client_cert
path
Path to a certificate used to authenticate with the API. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_CERT_FILE environment variable.

aliases: cert_file
client_key
path
Path to a key file used to authenticate with the API. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_KEY_FILE environment variable.

aliases: key_file
context
string
The name of a context found in the config file. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_CONTEXT environment variable.
host
string
Provide a URL for accessing the API. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_HOST environment variable.
kubeconfig
path
Path to an existing Kubernetes config file. If not provided, and no other connection options are provided, the openshift client will attempt to load the default configuration file from ~/.kube/config.json. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_KUBECONFIG environment variable.
merge_type
list
    Choices:
  • json
  • merge
  • strategic-merge
Whether to override the default patch merge approach with a specific type. By default, the strategic merge will typically be used.
password
string
Provide a password for authenticating with the API. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_PASSWORD environment variable.
Please read the description of the username option for a discussion of when this option is applicable.
path
-
Path of local image file to transfer.
pvc_name
- / required
Use to specify the name of the target PersistentVolumeClaim.
pvc_namespace
- / required
Use to specify the namespace of the target PersistentVolumeClaim.
upload_host
-
URL containing the host and port on which the CDI Upload Proxy is available.
upload_host_validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Whether or not to verify the CDI Upload Proxy's SSL certificates against your system's CA trust store.

aliases: upload_host_verify_ssl
username
string
Provide a username for authenticating with the API. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_USERNAME environment variable.
Please note that this only works with clusters configured to use HTTP Basic Auth. If your cluster has a different form of authentication (e.g. OAuth2 in OpenShift), this option will not work as expected and you should look into the k8s_auth module, as that might do what you need.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether or not to verify the API server's SSL certificates. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_VERIFY_SSL environment variable.

aliases: verify_ssl

Notes

Note

  • The OpenShift Python client wraps the K8s Python client, providing full access to all of the APIS and models available on both platforms. For API version details and additional information visit https://github.com/openshift/openshift-restclient-python
  • To avoid SSL certificate validation errors when validate_certs is True, the full certificate chain for the API server must be provided via ca_cert or in the kubeconfig file.

Examples

- name: Upload local image to pvc-vm1
  kubevirt_cdi_upload:
    pvc_namespace: default
    pvc_name: pvc-vm1
    upload_host: https://localhost:8443
    upload_host_validate_certs: false
    path: /tmp/cirros-0.4.0-x86_64-disk.img
