bigip_message_routing_protocol – Manage the generic message parser profile.

New in version 1.0.0.

Synopsis

  • Manages the generic message parser profile for use with the message routing framework.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Configuration Comments
description
string
The user-defined description of the generic parser profile.
disable_parser
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
When yes, the generic message parser is disabled, ignoring all incoming packets and not directly send message data.
This mode supports iRule script protocol implementations that generates messages from the incoming transport stream and sends outgoing messages on the outgoing transport stream.
max_egress_buffer
integer
Specifies the maximum size of the send buffer in bytes. If the number of bytes in the send buffer for a connection exceeds this value, the generic message protocol will stop receiving outgoing messages from the router until the size of the size of the buffer drops below this setting.
The accepted range is between 0 and 4294967295 inclusive.
max_msg_size
integer
Specifies the maximum size of a received message. If a message exceeds this size, the connection will be reset.
The accepted range is between 0 and 4294967295 inclusive.
msg_terminator
string
The string of characters used to terminate a message. If the message-terminator is not specified, the generic message parser will not separate the input stream into messages.
name
string / required
Specifies the name of the generic parser profile.
no_response
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
When set, matching of responses to requests is disabled.
parent
string
The parent template of this parser profile. Once this value has been set, it cannot be changed.
When creating a new profile, if this parameter is not specified, the default is the system-supplied genericmsg profile.
partition
string
Default:
"Common"
Device partition to create route object on.
provider
dictionary
added in 1.0.0
A dict object containing connection details.
auth_provider
string
Configures the auth provider for to obtain authentication tokens from the remote device.
This option is really used when working with BIG-IQ devices.
no_f5_teem
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If yes, TEEM telemetry data is not sent to F5.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_TEEM.
password
string / required
The password for the user account used to connect to the BIG-IP.
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
string / required
The username to connect to the BIG-IP with. This user must have administrative privileges on the device.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_USER.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • 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.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
When present, ensures the route exists.
When absent, ensures the route is removed.

Notes

Note

  • Requires BIG-IP >= 14.0.0
  • 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.
