Notes

Note

  • The following environment variables can be used, RAX_USERNAME, RAX_API_KEY, RAX_CREDS_FILE, RAX_CREDENTIALS, RAX_REGION.
  • RAX_CREDENTIALS and RAX_CREDS_FILE points to a credentials file appropriate for pyrax. See https://github.com/rackspace/pyrax/blob/master/docs/getting_started.md#authenticating
  • RAX_USERNAME and RAX_API_KEY obviate the use of a credentials file
  • RAX_REGION defines a Rackspace Public Cloud region (DFW, ORD, LON, ...)
  • The following environment variables can be used, RAX_USERNAME, RAX_API_KEY, RAX_CREDS_FILE, RAX_CREDENTIALS, RAX_REGION.
  • RAX_CREDENTIALS and RAX_CREDS_FILE points to a credentials file appropriate for pyrax. See https://github.com/rackspace/pyrax/blob/master/docs/getting_started.md#authenticating

Examples

- name: Enable SSL termination on a load balancer
  rax_clb_ssl:

    state: present
    private_key: "{{ lookup('file', 'credentials/server.key' ) }}"
    certificate: "{{ lookup('file', 'credentials/server.crt' ) }}"
    intermediate_certificate: "{{ lookup('file', 'credentials/trust-chain.crt') }}"
    secure_traffic_only: true
