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.
bootloader
string
Specify the bootloader of the virtual machine.
All virtual machines use BIOS by default for booting.
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
cloud_init_nocloud
dictionary
Represents a cloud-init NoCloud user-data source. The NoCloud data will be added as a disk to the virtual machine. A proper cloud-init installation is required inside the guest. More information https://kubevirt.io/api-reference/master/definitions.html#_v1_cloudinitnocloudsource
context
string
The name of a context found in the config file. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_CONTEXT environment variable.
cpu_cores
integer
Number of CPU cores.
cpu_features
list
List of dictionary to fine-tune features provided by the selected CPU model.
Note: Policy attribute can either be omitted or contain one of the following policies: force, require, optional, disable, forbid.
Note: In case a policy is omitted for a feature, it will default to require.
More information about policies: https://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html#elementsCPU
cpu_limit
integer
Is converted to its millicore value and multiplied by 100. The resulting value is the total amount of CPU time that a container can use every 100ms. A virtual machine cannot use more than its share of CPU time during this interval.
cpu_model
string
CPU model.
You can check list of available models here: https://github.com/libvirt/libvirt/blob/master/src/cpu_map/index.xml.
Note: User can define default CPU model via as default-cpu-model in kubevirt-config ConfigMap, if not set host-model is used.
Note: Be sure that node CPU model where you run a VM, has the same or higher CPU family.
Note: If CPU model wasn't defined, the VM will have CPU model closest to one that used on the node where the VM is running.
cpu_shares
integer
Specify CPU shares.
disks
list
List of dictionaries which specify disks of the virtual machine.
A disk can be made accessible via four different types: disk, lun, cdrom, floppy.
All possible configuration options are available in https://kubevirt.io/api-reference/master/definitions.html#_v1_disk
Each disk must have specified a volume that declares which volume type of the disk All possible configuration options of volume are available in https://kubevirt.io/api-reference/master/definitions.html#_v1_volume.
force
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
If set to no, and state is present, an existing object will be replaced.
headless
-
Specify if the virtual machine should have attached a minimal Video and Graphics device configuration.
By default a minimal Video and Graphics device configuration will be applied to the VirtualMachineInstance. The video device is vga compatible and comes with a memory size of 16 MB.
host
string
Provide a URL for accessing the API. Can also be specified via K8S_AUTH_HOST environment variable.
hugepage_size
string
Specify huge page size.
interfaces
list
An interface defines a virtual network interface of a virtual machine (also called a frontend).
All possible configuration options interfaces are available in https://kubevirt.io/api-reference/master/definitions.html#_v1_interface
Each interface must have specified a network that declares which logical or physical device it is connected to (also called as backend). All possible configuration options of network are available in https://kubevirt.io/api-reference/master/definitions.html#_v1_network.
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.
labels
dictionary
Labels are key/value pairs that are attached to virtual machines. Labels are intended to be used to specify identifying attributes of virtual machines that are meaningful and relevant to users, but do not directly imply semantics to the core system. Labels can be used to organize and to select subsets of virtual machines. Labels can be attached to virtual machines at creation time and subsequently added and modified at any time.
More on labels that are used for internal implementation https://kubevirt.io/user-guide/#/misc/annotations_and_labels
machine_type
string
QEMU machine type is the actual chipset of the virtual machine.
memory
string
The amount of memory to be requested by virtual machine.
For example 1024Mi.
memory_limit
string
The maximum memory to be used by virtual machine.
For example 1024Mi.
merge_type
list
    Choices:
  • json
  • merge
  • strategic-merge
Whether to override the default patch merge approach with a specific type.
If more than one merge type is given, the merge types will be tried in order.
Defaults to ['strategic-merge', 'merge'], which is ideal for using the same parameters on resource kinds that combine Custom Resources and built-in resources, as Custom Resource Definitions typically aren't updatable by the usual strategic merge.
name
string / required
Name of the virtual machine preset.
namespace
string / required
Namespace where the virtual machine preset exists.
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.
resource_definition
dictionary
A partial YAML definition of the object being created/updated. Here you can define Kubernetes resource parameters not covered by this module's parameters.
NOTE: resource_definition has lower priority than module parameters. If you try to define e.g. metadata.namespace here, that value will be ignored and namespace used instead.

aliases: definition, inline
selector
dictionary
Selector is a label query over a set of virtual machine preset.
smbios_uuid
string
In order to provide a consistent view on the virtualized hardware for the guest OS, the SMBIOS UUID can be set.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Create or delete virtual machine presets.
tablets
list
Specify tablets to be used as input devices
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
wait
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
True if the module should wait for the resource to get into desired state.
wait_timeout
integer
Default:
120
The amount of time in seconds the module should wait for the resource to get into desired state.

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.
  • In order to use this module you have to install Openshift Python SDK. To ensure it’s installed with correct version you can create the following task: pip: name=openshift>=0.8.2

Examples

- name: Create virtual machine preset 'vmi-preset-small'
  kubevirt_preset:
      state: present
      name: vmi-preset-small
      namespace: vms
      memory: 64M
      selector:
        matchLabels:
            kubevirt.io/vmPreset: vmi-preset-small

- name: Remove virtual machine preset 'vmi-preset-small'
  kubevirt_preset:
      state: absent
      name: vmi-preset-small
      namespace: vms
