parent
string
Specifies the profile from which this profile inherits settings.
When creating a new profile, if this parameter is not specified, the default is the system-supplied sip profile.

"Common"
Device partition to manage resources on.
provider
dictionary
added in 1.0.0

security
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
When yes. enables the use of enhanced Horizontal Security Layer (HSL) security checking.
state
string
    Choices:

When present, ensures the profile exists.
When absent, ensures the profile is removed.
terminate_on_bye
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes

A BYE transaction is a message an application sends to another application when it is ready to close the connection between the two.
user_via_header
string
When insert_via_header is yes, specifies the Via value the system inserts as the top Via header in a SIP REQUEST message.
The valid value must include SIP protocol and sent_by settings, for example: SIP/2.0/UDP 10.10.10.10:5060.

Notes

Note

  • 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.
