Adding an A DNS record

DigitalOcean provides a DNS service where we can add our domains and various related records. The Ansible module for the DNS is available; however, it supports only basic operations; that is, creating an A record.

How to do it...

We can use digital_ocean_domain module to create an A record.

- name: associate domain and IP
state: present
ip: "{{ app_droplet.droplet.ip_address }}"
api_token: "{{ DO_OAUTH_TOKEN }}"

For this task, we have supplied a domain name and IP address for creating the record. This is as far as this module goes. For advanced operations, we can use the doctl command-line tool or the web dashboard.
