How to add host to existing rule via ansible

Hey Guys,

I'm starting with checkpoint automatization with ansible, and I'm facing following issue.

API command for adding host (source/destination) is source.add.

I tried it from mgmt_cli and it worked fine:

[Expert@checkpoint:0]# mgmt_cli set access-rule layer "Network" rule-number 2 source.add test

---------------------------------------------
Time: [10:38:57] 25/1/2019
---------------------------------------------
"Publish operation" succeeded (100%)
[Expert@checkpoint:0]#

 

However, when I got command source.add in ansible, it comes with error, that source.add is not valid parameter:

*
fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "msg": "Command 'set-access-rule {u'layer': u'Network', u'source.add': u'source3', u'rule-position': 2}' failed with error message: Unrecognized parameter [source.add]. All changes are discarded and the session is invalidated."}

 

my task in ansible:

- name: adding host
  check_point_mgmt:
    command: set-access-rule
    parameters:
      rule-position: 2
      layer: Network
      source.add: source3

    session-data: "{{ login_response }}"

 

Thank you for help in advance!
