Notes

Note

  • In order to use this module you have to install oVirt Python SDK. To ensure it’s installed with correct version you can create the following task: pip: name=ovirt-engine-sdk-python version=4.3.0

Examples

# Examples don't contain auth parameter for simplicity,
# look at ovirt_auth module to see how to reuse authentication:

# Add image external provider:
- ovirt_external_provider:
    name: image_provider
    type: os_image
    url: http://1.2.3.4:9292
    username: admin
    password: 123456
    tenant: admin
    auth_url: http://1.2.3.4:35357/v2.0

# Add volume external provider:
- ovirt_external_provider:
    name: image_provider
    type: os_volume
    url: http://1.2.3.4:9292
    username: admin
    password: 123456
    tenant: admin
    auth_url: http://1.2.3.4:5000/v2.0
    authentication_keys:
      -
        uuid: "1234567-a1234-12a3-a234-123abc45678"
        value: "ABCD00000000111111222333445w=="

# Add foreman provider:
- ovirt_external_provider:
    name: foreman_provider
    type: foreman
    url: https://foreman.example.com
    username: admin
    password: 123456

# Add external network provider for OVN:
- ovirt_external_provider:
    name: ovn_provider
    type: network
    network_type: external
    url: http://1.2.3.4:9696

# Remove image external provider:
- ovirt_external_provider:
    state: absent
    name: image_provider
    type: os_image
