Examples

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

# Create administrative role with two permits
- ovirt_role:
    name: role
    administrative: true
    permits:
      - manipulate_permissions
      - create_instance

# Remove role
- ovirt_role:
    name: role
    state: absent

# Remove all permit
- ovirt_role:
    name: role
    administrative: ture
    permits:
      - login
