Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_user
The OCID of the user, on whose behalf, OCI APIs are invoked. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_OCID environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the user is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the user's OCID, please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.
api_user_fingerprint
Fingerprint for the key pair being used. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_FINGERPRINT environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key fingerprint is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the key pair's fingerprint value please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.
api_user_key_file
Full path and filename of the private key (in PEM format). If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_FILE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the private key is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). If the key is encrypted with a pass-phrase, the api_user_key_pass_phrase option must also be provided.
api_user_key_pass_phrase
Passphrase used by the key referenced in api_user_key_file, if it is encrypted. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_PASS_PHRASE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key passphrase is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location).
auth_type
    Choices:
  • api_key ←
  • instance_principal
The type of authentication to use for making API requests. By default auth_type="api_key" based authentication is performed and the API key (see api_user_key_file) in your config file will be used. If this 'auth_type' module option is not specified, the value of the OCI_ANSIBLE_AUTH_TYPE, if any, is used. Use auth_type="instance_principal" to use instance principal based authentication when running ansible playbooks within an OCI compute instance.
availability_domain
The name of the Availability Domain. Required to get information of all the boot volumes in the specified compartment_id and availability_domain. This option is mutually exclusive with boot_volume_id.
boot_volume_id
The OCID of the boot volume. Required to get information of a specific boot volume. This option is mutually exclusive with availability_domain.

aliases: id
compartment_id
The OCID of the compartment. Required to get information of all the boot volumes in the specified compartment_id and availability_domain.
config_file_location
Path to configuration file. If not set then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_FILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to ~/.oci/config.
config_profile_name
The profile to load from the config file referenced by config_file_location. If not set, then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_PROFILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to the "DEFAULT" profile in config_file_location.
display_name
Use display_name along with the other options to return only resources that match the given display name exactly.
lookup_attached_instance
bool
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Whether to fetch information of the compute instance attached to this boot volume from all the compartments in the tenancy.Fetching this information requires traversing through all the compartments in the Tenancy and therefore can potentially take a long time. This option is only supported in experimental mode. When lookup_all_attached_instances=False, only an attached compute instance belonging to this boot volume's compartment, is returned. This is useful when the boot volume is used within a single compartment. When lookup_all_attached_instances=True, all the compartments in the tenancy are searched to find out the compute instance that is attached to this boot volume. Fetching information about compute instances attached to this boot volume is an experimental feature (ie, this may or may not be supported in future releases). To use such experimental features, set the environment variable OCI_ANSIBLE_EXPERIMENTAL to True.
region
The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure region to use for all OCI API requests. If not set, then the value of the OCI_REGION variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the region is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). Please refer to https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/General/Concepts/regions.htm for more information on OCI regions.
tenancy
OCID of your tenancy. If not set, then the value of the OCI_TENANCY variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the tenancy OCID is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the tenancy OCID, please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm
volume_group_id
The OCID of the volume group.
