  • token

However, the module can also inherit the credentials from environment variables:




Username and password can be substituted by the token. Usage of the token is not mandatory. For generating a token, see this

NOTE: The API URL can be changed using the following parameter api_url in playbooks or using the IONOS_API_URL environment variable.
