Requirements

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

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.

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=4.2.4
