Synopsis

  • This module allows the user to create, update and delete an InternetGateway resource in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • For state=present, creates a new internet gateway for the specified VCN. For more information, see Access to the Internet.

  • For the purposes of access control, you must provide the OCID of the compartment where you want the Internet Gateway to reside. Notice that the internet gateway doesn’t have to be in the same compartment as the VCN or other Networking Service components. If you’re not sure which compartment to use, put the Internet Gateway in the same compartment with the VCN. For more information about compartments and access control, see Overview of the IAM Service.

  • You may optionally specify a display name for the internet gateway, otherwise a default is provided. It does not have to be unique, and you can change it. Avoid entering confidential information.

  • For traffic to flow between a subnet and an internet gateway, you must create a route rule accordingly in the subnet’s route table (for example, 0.0.0.0/0 > internet gateway). See UpdateRouteTable.

  • You must specify whether the internet gateway is enabled when you create it. If it’s disabled, that means no traffic will flow to/from the internet even if there’s a route rule that enables that traffic. You can later use UpdateInternetGateway to easily disable/enable the gateway without changing the route rule.

  • This resource has the following action operations in the oracle.oci.oci_network_internet_gateway_actions module: change_compartment.

Requirements

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

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:
  • service_principal
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.

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.
