Specifies list of the attributes which should be fetched from the API.
This parameter apply only when fetch_nested is true.
poll_interval
integer
Default:
3
Number of the seconds the module waits until another poll request on entity status is sent.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Should the network be present or absent
timeout
integer
Default:
180
The amount of time in seconds the module should wait for the instance to get into desired state.
vlan_tag
-
Specify VLAN tag.
vm_network
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If True network will be marked as network for VM.
VM network carries traffic relevant to the virtual machine.
wait

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:

# Create network
- ovirt_network:
    data_center: mydatacenter
    name: mynetwork
    vlan_tag: 1
    vm_network: true

# Remove network
- ovirt_network:
    state: absent
    name: mynetwork

# Change Network Name
- ovirt_network:
    id: 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
    name: "new_network_name"
    data_center: mydatacenter

# Add network from external provider
- ovirt_networks:
    data_center: mydatacenter
    name: mynetwork
    external_provider: ovirt-provider-ovn

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key Returned Description
id
string
On success if network is found.
ID of the managed network

Sample:
7de90f31-222c-436c-a1ca-7e655bd5b60c
network
dictionary
On success if network is found.
Dictionary of all the network attributes. Network attributes can be found on your oVirt/RHV instance at following url: http://ovirt.github.io/ovirt-engine-api-model/master/#types/network.
