os_router - Create or delete routers from OpenStack

New in version 2.0.

Synopsis

  • Create or Delete routers from OpenStack. Although Neutron allows routers to share the same name, this module enforces name uniqueness to be more user friendly.

Requirements

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

  • openstacksdk
  • python >= 2.7

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
admin_state_up
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Desired admin state of the created or existing router.
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.
enable_snat
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enable Source NAT (SNAT) attribute.
external_fixed_ips
The IP address parameters for the external gateway network. Each is a dictionary with the subnet name or ID (subnet) and the IP address to assign on the subnet (ip). If no IP is specified, one is automatically assigned from that subnet.
interface
(added in 2.3)
    Choices:
  • public ←
  • internal
  • admin
Endpoint URL type to fetch from the service catalog.

aliases: endpoint_type
interfaces
List of subnets to attach to the router internal interface. Default gateway associated with the subnet will be automatically attached with the router's internal interface. In order to provide an ip address different from the default gateway,parameters are passed as dictionary with keys as network name or ID(net), subnet name or ID (subnet) and the IP of port (portip) from the network. User defined portip is often required when a multiple router need to be connected to a single subnet for which the default gateway has been already used.
key
A path to a client key to use as part of the SSL transaction.
name
required
Name to be give to the router
network
Unique name or ID of the external gateway network.
required interfaces or enable_snat are provided.
project
(added in 2.2)
Unique name or ID of the project.
region_name
Name of the region.
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Indicate desired state of the resource
timeout Default:
180
How long should ansible wait for the requested resource.
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 ←
Should ansible wait until the requested resource is complete.

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
