name

The name of the domain
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Whether the domain should exist
subdomains Default:
[]
Any subdomains to create.

Notes

Note

  • If you are deleting domains by using state=absent, then note that if you specify subdomains, just those particular subdomains will be deleted. If you don’t specify subdomains, the domain will be deleted.
  • You can run playbooks that use this on a local machine, or on a Webfaction host, or elsewhere, since the scripts use the remote webfaction API. The location is not important. However, running them on multiple hosts simultaneously is best avoided. If you don’t specify localhost as your host, you may want to add serial: 1 to the plays.
  • See the webfaction API for more info.
