NAPALM helpers

Helpers for the NAPALM modules.

New in version 2017.7.0.

salt.modules.napalm_mod.alive(*args, **kwargs)

Returns the alive status of the connection layer. The output is a dictionary under the usual dictionary output of the NAPALM modules.

CLI Example:

salt '*' napalm.alive

Output Example:

result: True
out:
    is_alive: False
comment: ''
salt.modules.napalm_mod.call(*args, **kwargs)

Execute arbitrary methods from the NAPALM library. To see the expected output, please consult the NAPALM documentation.

Note

This feature is not recommended to be used in production. It should be used for testing only!

CLI Example:

salt '*' napalm.call get_lldp_neighbors
salt '*' napalm.call get_firewall_policies
salt '*' napalm.call get_bgp_config group='my-group'
salt.modules.napalm_mod.compliance_report(*args, **kwargs)

Return the compliance report.

filepath

The absolute path to the validation file.

Changed in version 2019.2.0.

Beginning with release codename 2019.2.0, this function has been enhanced, to be able to leverage the multi-engine template rendering of Salt, besides the possibility to retrieve the file source from remote systems, the URL schemes supported being:

  • salt://
  • http:// and https://
  • ftp://
  • s3://
  • swift:/

Or on the local file system (on the Minion).

Note

The rendering result does not necessarily need to be YAML, instead it can be any format interpreted by Salt's rendering pipeline (including pure Python).

string

New in version 2019.2.0.

The compliance report send as inline string, to be used as the file to send through the renderer system. Note, not all renderer modules can work with strings; the 'py' renderer requires a file, for example.

renderer: jinja|yaml

New in version 2019.2.0.

The renderer pipe to send the file through; this is overridden by a "she-bang" at the top of the file.

kwargs

Changed in version 2019.2.0.

Keyword args to pass to Salt's compile_template() function.

CLI Example:

salt '*' napalm.compliance_report ~/validate.yml
salt '*' napalm.compliance_report salt://path/to/validator.sls

Validation File Example (pure YAML):

- get_facts:
    os_version: 4.17

- get_interfaces_ip:
    Management1:
      ipv4:
        10.0.2.14:
          prefix_length: 24
        _mode: strict

Validation File Example (as Jinja + YAML):

- get_facts:
    os_version: {{ grains.version }}
- get_interfaces_ip:
    Loopback0:
      ipv4:
        {{ grains.lo0.ipv4 }}:
          prefix_length: 24
        _mode: strict
- get_bgp_neighbors: {{ pillar.bgp.neighbors }}

Return the connection object with the Arista switch, over pyeapi, passing the authentication details from the existing NAPALM connection.

Warning

This function is not suitable for CLI usage, more rather to be used in various Salt modules, to reusing the established connection, as in opposite to opening a new connection for each task.

Usage example:

conn = __salt__['napalm.pyeapi_conn']()
res1 = conn.run_commands('show version')
res2 = conn.get_config(as_string=True)
salt.modules.napalm_mod.pyeapi_nxos_api_args(**prev_kwargs)

New in version 2019.2.0.

Return the key-value arguments used for the authentication arguments for the pyeapi execution module.

CLI Example:

salt '*' napalm.pyeapi_nxos_api_args
salt.modules.napalm_mod.pyeapi_run_commands(*args, **kwargs)

Execute a list of commands on the Arista switch, via the pyeapi library. This function forwards the existing connection details to the pyeapi.run_commands execution function.

commands
A list of commands to execute.
encoding: json
The requested encoding of the command output. Valid values for encoding are json (default) or text.

CLI Example:

salt '*' napalm.pyeapi_run_commands 'show version' encoding=text
salt '*' napalm.pyeapi_run_commands 'show ip bgp neighbors'
salt.modules.napalm_mod.reconnect(*args, **kwargs)

Reconnect the NAPALM proxy when the connection is dropped by the network device. The connection can be forced to be restarted using the force argument.

Note

This function can be used only when running proxy minions.

CLI Example:

salt '*' napalm.reconnect
salt '*' napalm.reconnect force=True
salt.modules.napalm_mod.rpc(*args, **kwargs)

New in version 2019.2.0.

This is a wrapper to execute RPC requests on various network operating systems supported by NAPALM, invoking the following functions for the NAPALM native drivers:

command
The RPC command to execute. This depends on the nature of the operating system.
kwargs
Key-value arguments to be sent to the underlying Execution function.

The function capabilities are extensible in the user environment via the napalm_rpc_map configuration option / Pillar, e.g.,

napalm_rpc_map:
  f5: napalm.netmiko_commands
  panos: panos.call

The mapping above reads: when the NAPALM os Grain is f5, then call napalm.netmiko_commands for RPC requests.

By default, if the user does not specify any map, non-native NAPALM drivers will invoke the napalm.netmiko_commands Execution function.

CLI Example:

salt '*' napalm.rpc 'show version'
salt '*' napalm.rpc get-interfaces
salt.modules.napalm_mod.scp_get(remote_path, local_path=u'', recursive=False, preserve_times=False, **kwargs)

New in version 2019.2.0.

Transfer files and directories from remote network device to the localhost of the Minion.

Note

This function is only available only when the underlying library scp is installed. See scp module for more details.

remote_path
Path to retrieve from remote host. Since this is evaluated by scp on the remote host, shell wildcards and environment variables may be used.
recursive: False
Transfer files and directories recursively.
preserve_times: False
Preserve mtime and atime of transferred files and directories.
passphrase
Used for decrypting private keys.
pkey
An optional private key to use for authentication.
key_filename
The filename, or list of filenames, of optional private key(s) and/or certificates to try for authentication.
timeout
An optional timeout (in seconds) for the TCP connect.
socket_timeout: 10
The channel socket timeout in seconds.
buff_size: 16384
The size of the SCP send buffer.
allow_agent: True
Set to False to disable connecting to the SSH agent.
look_for_keys: True
Set to False to disable searching for discoverable private key files in ~/.ssh/
banner_timeout
An optional timeout (in seconds) to wait for the SSH banner to be presented.
auth_timeout
An optional timeout (in seconds) to wait for an authentication response.
auto_add_policy: False
Automatically add the host to the known_hosts.

CLI Example:

salt '*' napalm.scp_get /var/tmp/file /tmp/file auto_add_policy=True
salt.modules.napalm_mod.scp_put(files, remote_path=None, recursive=False, preserve_times=False, saltenv=u'base', **kwargs)

New in version 2019.2.0.

Transfer files and directories to remote network device.

Note

This function is only available only when the underlying library scp is installed. See scp module for more details.

files
A single path or a list of paths to be transferred.
remote_path
The path on the remote device where to store the files.
recursive: True
Transfer files and directories recursively.
preserve_times: False
Preserve mtime and atime of transferred files and directories.
saltenv: base
The name of the Salt environment. Ignored when files is not a salt:// URL.
hostname
The hostname of the remote device.
port: 22
The port of the remote device.
username
The username required for SSH authentication on the device.
password
Used for password authentication. It is also used for private key decryption if passphrase is not given.
passphrase
Used for decrypting private keys.
pkey
An optional private key to use for authentication.
key_filename
The filename, or list of filenames, of optional private key(s) and/or certificates to try for authentication.
timeout
An optional timeout (in seconds) for the TCP connect.
