In many vmware_* modules, the datacenter parameter is marked as required - but is it really needed?
I ask because I've written a module, based on vmware_guest_find, that returns the Datacenter for a given VM and VCenter, which I can then feed in to the other "official" modules. My module uses the built-in function "get_parent_datacenter" (defined in https://github.com/ansible/ansible/blob/devel/lib/ansible/module_utils/vmware.py) so I'm not inventing anything particularly new. My point is that if I, an amateur Python coder at best, can do this, why can't the official modules do it by default? Is there some reason for the current behaviour that I am missing? I'm not really confident (yet) in editing the official modules and submitting Pull Requests etc. but am happy to share my code with someone who can do this. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Ansible Development" group.
