Radware Common and Alteon Modules for Ansible

Project description

PyPI version


Ansible Alteon modules and Radware common module_utils. these modules and module infrastructure consume services from the SDK, thus it must be installed prior running them Argument specification is a construct generate during runtime from the relevant SDK Configurator metadata, multi-choice values are directly dynamically accesses from SDK beans, therefor any update in SDK become available to the ansible module right after updating the SDK. this is useful for when a new attribute is introduced or a new value to current attribute

all modules support Check Mode + diff display and Idempotency. each configuration module support ansible 'state': present, absent, read, overwrite, append for overwrite when 'write on change' is set , an actual change will be triggered only if a change has evaluated. furthermore they utilize two SDK configuration features:


pip install radware-ansible-common-alteon

Design Principles

  • 4 modules: some indexed & others are a summary
  • 5 management modules: read device info, reboot, software upload, configuration upload/download, config management (commit, save, sync, revert, etc..)
  • 3 common modules: interfacing with SDK mng & config & common
  • The module execute configurator functions from the SDK
  • Check mode (dry_run) + diff display is supported on all modules
  • Idempotency: Change/ no change report + write on changes only
  • Revert_on_error
  • Exception handling: SDK stacktrace copy, warn user about supported version (from SDK)
  • Argument specification construct in runtime from SDK configurator: - a construct of SDK metadata: not restricted to Ansible - single point of change - choices (Enum) derive from SDK bean sub-package - directly become available to users after updating the SDK
  • Function Argument specification construct in runtime for Management services from SDK
