Synopsis

Requirements

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

  • openstacksdk
  • python >= 2.7

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_timeout
integer
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
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 (for example, os_user_domain_name or os_project_domain_name) 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
string
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
ca_cert
string
A path to a CA Cert bundle that can be used as part of verifying SSL API requests.

aliases: cacert

cloud

Notes

Note

  • The standard OpenStack environment variables, such as OS_USERNAME may be used instead of providing explicit values.
  • Auth information is driven by openstacksdk, 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 https://docs.openstack.org/openstacksdk/
