Configuring Ansible for Avi Vantage
- Install the Avi SDK
pip install avisdk
Note: Starting with Ansible version 2.9 you need not install Avi SDK
- Install the avinetworks.avisdk Ansible role.
ansible-galaxy install -f avinetworks.avisdk
For help using the module and understanding key value pairs, refer to the Avi API Guide.You can also find a visual representation of current values using https://<avicontroller>/api/
Below is an example playbook.
- hosts: localhost connection: local vars: controller: 10.10.28.4 username: admin password: avi123$% api_version: "17.2.8" roles: - avinetworks.avisdk tasks: - avi_pool: controller: '' api_version: '' username: '' password: '' name: testpool2 state: present health_monitor_refs: - '/api/healthmonitor?name=System-HTTP' servers: - ip: addr: 10.90.130.8 type: V4 - ip: addr: 10.90.130.7 type: V4 - avi_virtualservice: controller: '' api_version: '' username: '' password: '' name: newtestvs state: present performance_limits: max_concurrent_connections: 1000 ssl_profile_ref: '/api/sslprofile?name=System-Standard' application_profile_ref: '/api/applicationprofile?name=System-Secure-HTTP' ssl_key_and_certificate_refs: - '/api/sslkeyandcertificate?name=System-Default-Cert' vip: - ip_address: addr: 10.90.131.103 type: V4 vip_id: 1 services: - port: 443 enable_ssl: true - port: 80 pool_ref: '/api/pool?name=testpool2'
Note: Starting with release 17.1.1, Avi Vantage supports API versioning for backward compatibility with automation scripts written for an object model older than the current one. Such scripts need not be updated to keep up with object model changes. Accordingly, playbook authors should set
api_versionto the oldest version of Avi Vantage in which their code can work. Refer to the API Versioning article (cited below).

Starting with Avi Vantage release 21.1.1, the support for Ansible collection is available for Avi Vantage deployments. The Ansible collections are supported for Ansible version 2.9.10 or the later versions.
