ovirt_networks_facts - Retrieve facts about one or more oVirt/RHV networks

New in version 2.3.

Synopsis

  • Retrieve facts about one or more oVirt/RHV networks.

Requirements

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

  • python >= 2.7
  • ovirt-engine-sdk-python >= 4.2.4

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
auth
required
Dictionary with values needed to create HTTP/HTTPS connection to oVirt:
username[required] - The name of the user, something like [email protected]. Default value is set by OVIRT_USERNAME environment variable.
password[required] - The password of the user. Default value is set by OVIRT_PASSWORD environment variable.
url- A string containing the API URL of the server, usually something like `https://server.example.com/ovirt-engine/api`. Default value is set by OVIRT_URL environment variable. Either url or hostname is required.
hostname - A string containing the hostname of the server, usually something like `server.example.com`. Default value is set by OVIRT_HOSTNAME environment variable. Either url or hostname is required.
token - Token to be used instead of login with username/password. Default value is set by OVIRT_TOKEN environment variable.
insecure - A boolean flag that indicates if the server TLS certificate and host name should be checked.
ca_file - A PEM file containing the trusted CA certificates. The certificate presented by the server will be verified using these CA certificates. If `ca_file` parameter is not set, system wide CA certificate store is used. Default value is set by OVIRT_CAFILE environment variable.
kerberos - A boolean flag indicating if Kerberos authentication should be used instead of the default basic authentication.
headers - Dictionary of HTTP headers to be added to each API call.
fetch_nested
(added in 2.3)
If True the module will fetch additional data from the API.
It will fetch IDs of the VMs disks, snapshots, etc. User can configure to fetch other attributes of the nested entities by specifying nested_attributes.
nested_attributes
(added in 2.3)
Specifies list of the attributes which should be fetched from the API.
This parameter apply only when fetch_nested is true.
pattern
Search term which is accepted by oVirt/RHV search backend.
For example to search network starting with string vlan1 use: name=vlan1*

Notes

Note

  • This module creates a new top-level ovirt_networks fact, which contains a list of networks.
  • 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=4.2.4

Examples

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

# Gather facts about all networks which names start with C(vlan1):
- ovirt_networks_facts:
    pattern: name=vlan1*
- debug:
    var: ovirt_networks

Return Values

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

Key Returned Description
ovirt_networks
list
On success.
List of dictionaries describing the networks. Network attribues are mapped to dictionary keys, all networks attributes can be found at following url: http://ovirt.github.io/ovirt-engine-api-model/master/#types/network.



Status

This module is flagged as preview which means that it is not guaranteed to have a backwards compatible interface.
