ordnance_facts – Collect facts from Ordnance Virtual Routers over SSH

New in version 2.3.

Synopsis

  • Collects a base set of device facts from an Ordnance Virtual router over SSH. This module prepends all of the base network fact keys with ansible_net_<fact>. The facts module will always collect a base set of facts from the device and can enable or disable collection of additional facts.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
gather_subset
-
Default:
"!config"
When supplied, this argument will restrict the facts collected to a given subset. Possible values for this argument include all, hardware, config, and interfaces. Can specify a list of values to include a larger subset. Values can also be used with an initial ! to specify that a specific subset should not be collected.

Examples

---
# Note: examples below use the following provider dict to handle
#       transport and authentication to the node.
vars:
  cli:
    host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
    username: RouterName
    password: ordnance
    transport: cli

---
# Collect all facts from the device
- ordnance_facts:
    gather_subset: all
    provider: "{{ cli }}"

# Collect only the config and default facts

    gather_subset:
      - config
    provider: "{{ cli }}"
