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:

    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.

direction
string
    Choices:
  • EGRESS
  • INGRESS

network_security_group_id
string / required
The OCID of the network security group.
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.

    Choices:
  • TIMECREATED
The field to sort by.
sort_order
string
    Choices:

The sort order to use, either ascending (`ASC`) or descending (`DESC`). The DISPLAYNAME sort order is case sensitive.
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).

Key Returned Description
network_security_group_security_rules
complex
on success
List of NetworkSecurityGroupSecurityRule resources

Sample:
[{'description': 'description_example', 'destination': 'destination_example', 'destination_type': 'CIDR_BLOCK', 'direction': 'EGRESS', 'icmp_options': {'code': 56, 'type': 56}, 'id': 'ocid1.resource.oc1..xxxxxxEXAMPLExxxxxx', 'is_stateless': True, 'is_valid': True, 'protocol': 'protocol_example', 'source': 'source_example', 'source_type': 'CIDR_BLOCK', 'tcp_options': {'destination_port_range': {'max': 56, 'min': 56}, 'source_port_range': {'max': 56, 'min': 56}}, 'time_created': '2013-10-20T19:20:30+01:00', 'udp_options': {'destination_port_range': {'max': 56, 'min': 56}, 'source_port_range': {'max': 56, 'min': 56}}}]
 
description
string
on success
An optional description of your choice for the rule.

Sample:
description_example
 
destination
string
on success
Conceptually, this is the range of IP addresses that a packet originating from the instance can go to.
Allowed values:
* An IP address range in CIDR notation. For example: `192.168.1.0/24` or `2001:0db8:0123:45::/56` IPv6 addressing is supported for all commercial and government regions. See IPv6 Addresses.
* The `cidrBlock` value for a Service, if you're setting up a security rule for traffic destined for a particular `Service` through a service gateway. For example: `oci-phx-objectstorage`.
* The OCID of a NetworkSecurityGroup in the same VCN. The value can be the NSG that the rule belongs to if the rule's intent is to control traffic between VNICs in the same NSG.

Sample:
destination_example
 
destination_type
string
on success
Type of destination for the rule. Required if `direction` = `EGRESS`.
Allowed values:
* `CIDR_BLOCK`: If the rule's `destination` is an IP address range in CIDR notation.
* `SERVICE_CIDR_BLOCK`: If the rule's `destination` is the `cidrBlock` value for a Service (the rule is for traffic destined for a particular `Service` through a service gateway).
* `NETWORK_SECURITY_GROUP`: If the rule's `destination` is the OCID of a NetworkSecurityGroup.

Sample:
CIDR_BLOCK
 
direction
string
on success
Direction of the security rule. Set to `EGRESS` for rules to allow outbound IP packets, or `INGRESS` for rules to allow inbound IP packets.

Sample:
EGRESS
 
icmp_options
complex
on success

   
code
integer
on success
The ICMP code (optional).

Sample:
56
   
type
integer
on success
The ICMP type.

Sample:
56
 
id
string
on success
An Oracle-assigned identifier for the security rule. You specify this ID when you want to update or delete the rule.
Example: `04ABEC`

Sample:
ocid1.resource.oc1..xxxxxxEXAMPLExxxxxx
 
is_stateless
boolean
on success
A stateless rule allows traffic in one direction. Remember to add a corresponding stateless rule in the other direction if you need to support bidirectional traffic. For example, if egress traffic allows TCP destination port 80, there should be an ingress rule to allow TCP source port 80. Defaults to false, which means the rule is stateful and a corresponding rule is not necessary for bidirectional traffic.

Sample:
True
 
is_valid
boolean
on success
Whether the rule is valid. The value is `True` when the rule is first created. If the rule's `source` or `destination` is a network security group, the value changes to `False` if that network security group is deleted.

Sample:
True
 
protocol
string
on success
The transport protocol. Specify either `all` or an IPv4 protocol number as defined in Protocol Numbers. Options are supported only for ICMP ("1"), TCP ("6"), UDP ("17"), and ICMPv6 ("58").

Sample:
protocol_example
 
source
string
on success
Conceptually, this is the range of IP addresses that a packet coming into the instance can come from.
Allowed values:
* An IP address range in CIDR notation. For example: `192.168.1.0/24` or `2001:0db8:0123:45::/56` IPv6 addressing is supported for all commercial and government regions. See IPv6 Addresses.
* The `cidrBlock` value for a Service, if you're setting up a security rule for traffic coming from a particular `Service` through a service gateway. For example: `oci-phx-objectstorage`.
* The OCID of a NetworkSecurityGroup in the same VCN. The value can be the NSG that the rule belongs to if the rule's intent is to control traffic between VNICs in the same NSG.

Sample:
source_example
 
source_type
string
on success
Type of source for the rule. Required if `direction` = `INGRESS`.
* `CIDR_BLOCK`: If the rule's `source` is an IP address range in CIDR notation.
* `SERVICE_CIDR_BLOCK`: If the rule's `source` is the `cidrBlock` value for a Service (the rule is for traffic coming from a particular `Service` through a service gateway).
* `NETWORK_SECURITY_GROUP`: If the rule's `source` is the OCID of a NetworkSecurityGroup.
