|host (required)||Host name or IP address of the host to which the SSH application is to connect. Alternatively you can pass a value of the form user@host, but its probably better to use the separate username parameter instead.|
|username||Optionally pass in the username for the SSH connection, otherwise the SSH client defaults to the current users username. When using this option, you should obviously only pass the host name to host.|
Under normal interactive use openssh tracks the identity of connected hosts
and verifies these identities upon each connection. In automation this behaviour
can be irritating because it is interactive.
This option, enabled by default, causes openssh to skip or ignore this host identity verification. This means the default setting is less secure, but also less likely to trip you up. It is equivalent to the following:
Pass a false value to this option to disable the above and return openssh to its default configured settings.
If you want to pass any other options to openssh on its command line, then use
this option, which should be an array reference. Each item in the list will be
passed to openssh, separated by a single space character. For example:
|reap||Only used on Unix platforms, this installs a signal handler which attempts to reap the ssh child process. Pass a true value to enable this feature only if you notice zombie processes are being left behind after use.|
