serial_number
string
The serial number of a firewall to use for targeted commands. If ip_address is not a Panorama PAN-OS device, then this param is ignored.

The vsys this object should be imported into. Objects that are imported include interfaces, virtual routers, virtual wires, and VLANs. Interfaces are typically imported into vsys1 if no vsys is specified.
vsys_dg
-
Deprecated
Use vsys to specify the vsys instead.

Name of the vsys (if firewall) or device group (if panorama) to put this object.
zone_name
-
Name of the zone for the interface.
If the zone does not exist it is created.
If the zone already exists its mode should match mode.

Notes

Note

  • Checkmode is supported.

  • If the PAN-OS device is a firewall and vsys is not specified, then the vsys will default to vsys=vsys1.

  • PAN-OS connectivity should be specified using provider or the classic PAN-OS connectivity params (ip_address, username, password, api_key, and port). If both are present, then the classic params are ignored.

Examples

# Create ethernet1/1 as DHCP.
- name: enable DHCP client on ethernet1/1 in zone public
  panos_interface:
    provider: '{{ provider }}'
    if_name: "ethernet1/1"
    zone_name: "public"
    create_default_route: "yes"

# Update ethernet1/2 with a static IP address in zone dmz.
- name: ethernet1/2 as static in zone dmz
  panos_interface:
    provider: '{{ provider }}'
    if_name: "ethernet1/2"
    mode: "layer3"
