bigip_as3_deploy – Manages AS3 declarations sent to BIG-IP

New in version 1.0.0.

Synopsis

  • Manages AS3 declarations sent to the BIG-IP.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Configuration Comments
content
raw
Declaration to be configured on the system.
This parameter is most often used with the file or template lookup plugins. Refer to the examples section for correct usage.
For anything advanced or with formatting, consider using the template lookup.
Additionally, this can be used for specifying application service configurations directly in YAML. However that is not an encouraged practice and, if used at all, should only be used for the absolute smallest of configurations to prevent your Playbooks from becoming too large.
If your content includes encrypted values (such as ciphertexts, passphrases, etc), the returned changed value will always be true.
If you are using the to_nice_json filter, it causes this module to fail because the purpose of that filter is to format the JSON to be human-readable and this process includes inserting extra characters that break JSON validators.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
When state is present, ensures the declaration is exists.
When state is absent, ensures the declaration is removed.
tenant
string
An AS3 tenant you want to manage.
A value of all when state is absent removes all AS3 declarations from the device.
timeout
integer
Default:
300
The amount of time to wait for the AS3 async interface to complete its task, in seconds.
The accepted value range is between 10 and 1800 seconds.
