New in version 2.1.
Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable
|authorize ||no|| ||
Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable
The commands to send to the remote EOS device over the configured provider. The resulting output from the command is returned. If the wait_for argument is provided, the module is not returned until the condition is satisfied or the number of retries has been exceeded.
Configures the interval in seconds to wait between retries of the command. If the command does not pass the specified conditional, the interval indicates how to long to wait before trying the command again.
(added in 2.2)
The match argument is used in conjunction with the wait_for argument to specify the match policy. Valid values are
A dict object containing connection details.
Specifies the number of retries a command should be tried before it is considered failed. The command is run on the target device every retry and evaluated against the wait_for conditionals.
(added in 2.2)
Specifies what to evaluate from the output of the command and what conditionals to apply. This argument will cause the task to wait for a particular conditional to be true before moving forward. If the conditional is not true by the configured retries, the task fails. See examples.
