os_floating_ip - Add/Remove floating IP from an instance

New in version 2.0.

Synopsis

  • Add or Remove a floating IP to an instance

Requirements

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

  • openstacksdk
  • python >= 2.7

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_timeout
How long should the socket layer wait before timing out for API calls. If this is omitted, nothing will be passed to the requests library.
auth
Dictionary containing auth information as needed by the cloud's auth plugin strategy. For the default password plugin, this would contain auth_url, username, password, project_name and any information about domains if the cloud supports them. For other plugins, this param will need to contain whatever parameters that auth plugin requires. This parameter is not needed if a named cloud is provided or OpenStack OS_* environment variables are present.
auth_type
Name of the auth plugin to use. If the cloud uses something other than password authentication, the name of the plugin should be indicated here and the contents of the auth parameter should be updated accordingly.
availability_zone
Ignored. Present for backwards compatibility
cacert
A path to a CA Cert bundle that can be used as part of verifying SSL API requests.
cert
A path to a client certificate to use as part of the SSL transaction.
cloud
Named cloud or cloud config to operate against. If cloud is a string, it references a named cloud config as defined in an OpenStack clouds.yaml file. Provides default values for auth and auth_type. This parameter is not needed if auth is provided or if OpenStack OS_* environment variables are present. If cloud is a dict, it contains a complete cloud configuration like would be in a section of clouds.yaml.
fixed_address
To which fixed IP of server the floating IP address should be attached to.
floating_ip_address
A floating IP address to attach or to detach. Required only if state is absent. When state is present can be used to specify a IP address to attach.
interface
(added in 2.3)
    Choices:
  • public ←
  • internal
  • admin
Endpoint URL type to fetch from the service catalog.

aliases: endpoint_type
key
A path to a client key to use as part of the SSL transaction.
nat_destination
(added in 2.3)
The name or id of a neutron private network that the fixed IP to attach floating IP is on

aliases: fixed_network, internal_network
network
The name or ID of a neutron external network or a nova pool name.
purge
bool

(added in 2.1)
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
When state is absent, indicates whether or not to delete the floating IP completely, or only detach it from the server. Default is to detach only.
region_name
Name of the region.
reuse
bool
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
When state is present, and floating_ip_address is not present, this parameter can be used to specify whether we should try to reuse a floating IP address already allocated to the project.
server
required
The name or ID of the instance to which the IP address should be assigned.
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Should the resource be present or absent.
timeout Default:
60
Time to wait for an IP address to appear as attached. See wait.
verify
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether or not SSL API requests should be verified. Before 2.3 this defaulted to True.

aliases: validate_certs
wait
bool
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
When attaching a floating IP address, specify whether we should wait for it to appear as attached.

Notes

Note

  • The standard OpenStack environment variables, such as OS_USERNAME may be used instead of providing explicit values.
  • Auth information is driven by os-client-config, which means that values can come from a yaml config file in /etc/ansible/openstack.yaml, /etc/openstack/clouds.yaml or ~/.config/openstack/clouds.yaml, then from standard environment variables, then finally by explicit parameters in plays. More information can be found at http://docs.openstack.org/developer/os-client-config

Examples

# Assign a floating IP to the fist interface of `cattle001` from an exiting
# external network or nova pool. A new floating IP from the first available
# external network is allocated to the project.
- os_floating_ip:
     cloud: dguerri
     server: cattle001

# Assign a new floating IP to the instance fixed ip `192.0.2.3` of
# `cattle001`. If a free floating IP is already allocated to the project, it is
# reused; if not, a new one is created.
- os_floating_ip:
     cloud: dguerri
     state: present
     reuse: yes
     server: cattle001
     network: ext_net
     fixed_address: 192.0.2.3
     wait: true
     timeout: 180

# Assign a new floating IP from the network `ext_net` to the instance fixed
# ip in network `private_net` of `cattle001`.
- os_floating_ip:
     cloud: dguerri
     state: present
     server: cattle001
     network: ext_net
     nat_destination: private_net
     wait: true
     timeout: 180

# Detach a floating IP address from a server
- os_floating_ip:
     cloud: dguerri
     state: absent
     floating_ip_address: 203.0.113.2
     server: cattle001
