You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_TEEM.
password
string / required

You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_PASSWORD.

aliases: pass, pwd
server
string / required
The BIG-IP host.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_SERVER.
server_port
integer
Default:
443
The BIG-IP server port.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_SERVER_PORT.
timeout
integer
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.
transport
string
    Choices:
  • rest ←
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device.
user

You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_USER.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:

  • yes ←
If no, SSL certificates are not validated. Use this only on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_VALIDATE_CERTS.
retries
integer
Specifies the number of authentication retries the BIG-IP Local Traffic Management system allows before authentication fails.
servers
list / elements=string
Specifies the names of RADIUS servers for use with RADIUS authentication profiles.
service_type
string

  • authenticate-only
  • login
  • default
  • framed
  • callback-login
  • callback-framed
  • outbound

When state is absent, ensures the RADIUS server is removed.
use_for_auth
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Specifies whether or not this auth source is put in use on the system.
If yes, the module sets the current system auth type to the value of radius.
If no, the module sets the authentication type to local, similar behavior to when state is absent, without removing the configured RADIUS resource.

Notes

Note

  • This module is based on the command line (TMSH) configuration capabilities of RADIUS authentication, not the GUI.
  • For more information on using Ansible to manage F5 Networks devices see https://www.ansible.com/integrations/networks/f5.
  • Requires BIG-IP software version >= 12.
  • The F5 modules only manipulate the running configuration of the F5 product. To ensure that BIG-IP specific configuration persists to disk, be sure to include at least one task that uses the f5networks.f5_modules.bigip_config module to save the running configuration. Refer to the module’s documentation for the correct usage of the module to save your running configuration.
