Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_user
string
The OCID of the user, on whose behalf, OCI APIs are invoked. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_ID 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
string
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
string
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
string
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_purpose
string
    Choices:

The auth purpose which can be used in conjunction with 'auth_type=instance_principal'. The default auth_purpose for instance_principal is None.
auth_type
string
    Choices:
  • api_key ←
  • instance_principal
  • instance_obo_user
  • resource_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.
cert_bundle
string
The full path to a CA certificate bundle to be used for SSL verification. This will override the default CA certificate bundle. If not set, then the value of the OCI_ANSIBLE_CERT_BUNDLE variable, if any, is used.
config_file_location
string
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
string
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
string
Filters results that exactly match the `displayName` field.
name
string
Filters results that exactly match the `name` field.
region
string
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.
sort_by
string
    Choices:
  • name
  • displayName
The field to sort by when listing vantage points.
sort_order
string
    Choices:
  • ASC
  • DESC
Controls the sort order of results.
tenancy
string
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

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key Returned Description
health_checks_vantage_points
complex
on success
List of HealthChecksVantagePoint resources

Sample:
[{'display_name': 'display_name_example', 'geo': {'admin_div_code': 'admin_div_code_example', 'city_name': 'city_name_example', 'country_code': 'country_code_example', 'country_name': 'country_name_example', 'geo_key': 'geo_key_example', 'latitude': 3.4, 'longitude': 3.4}, 'name': 'name_example', 'provider_name': 'provider_name_example', 'routing': [{'as_label': 'as_label_example', 'asn': 56, 'prefix': 'prefix_example', 'weight': 56}]}]
 
display_name
string
on success
The display name for the vantage point. Display names are determined by the best information available and may change over time.

Sample:
display_name_example
 
geo
complex
on success

   
admin_div_code
string
on success
The ISO 3166-2 code for this location's first-level administrative division, either a US state or Canadian province. Only included for locations in the US or Canada. For a list of codes, see Country Codes.

Sample:
admin_div_code_example
   
city_name
string
on success
Common English-language name for the city.

Sample:
city_name_example
   
country_code
string
on success
The ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code. For a list of codes, see Country Codes.

Sample:
country_code_example
   
country_name
string
on success
The common English-language name for the country.

Sample:
country_name_example
   
geo_key
string
on success
An opaque identifier for the geographic location of the vantage point.

Sample:
geo_key_example
   
latitude
float
on success
Degrees north of the Equator.

Sample:
3.4
   
longitude
float
on success
Degrees east of the prime meridian.

Sample:
3.4
 
name
string
on success
The unique, permanent name for the vantage point.

Sample:
name_example
 
provider_name
string
on success
The organization on whose infrastructure this vantage point resides. Provider names are not unique, as Oracle Cloud Infrastructure maintains many vantage points in each major provider.

Sample:
provider_name_example
 
routing
complex
on success
An array of objects that describe how traffic to this vantage point is routed, including which prefixes and ASNs connect it to the internet.
The addresses are sorted from the most-specific to least-specific prefix (the smallest network to largest network). When a prefix has multiple origin ASNs (MOAS routing), they are sorted by weight (highest to lowest). Weight is determined by the total percentage of peers observing the prefix originating from an ASN. Only present if `fields` includes `routing`. The field will be null if the address's routing information is unknown.

   
as_label
string
on success
The registry label for `asn`, usually the name of the organization that owns the ASN. May be omitted or null.

Sample:
as_label_example
   
asn
integer
on success
The Autonomous System Number (ASN) identifying the organization responsible for routing packets to `prefix`.

Sample:
56
   
prefix
string
on success
An IP prefix (CIDR syntax) that is less specific than `address`, through which `address` is routed.

Sample:
prefix_example
   
weight
integer
on success
An integer between 0 and 100 used to select between multiple origin ASNs when routing to `prefix`. Most prefixes have exactly one origin ASN, in which case `weight` will be 100.

Sample:
56
