F5 BIG-IP Imperative Collection for Ansible

Slack Status Build Status Shippable Status

Introduction

This repository is the source for F5 BIG-IP Imperative Collection for Ansible. The architecture of the modules makes inherent use of the BIG-IP REST APIs as well as the tmsh API where required.

This repository is an incubator for Ansible imperative modules. The modules in this repository may be broken due to experimentation or refactoring.

The F5 BIG-IP Modules for Ansible are freely provided to the open source community for automating BIG-IP device configurations.

If you want to download the stable modules, please install latest collection release found on galaxy: F5 Ansible Modules Collection.

Collections Daily Build

We offer a daily build of our most recent collection here. Please use this Collection to test the most recent Ansible module updates between releases.

Installing the Daily Build

ansible-galaxy collection install <collection name> -p ./collections
e.g.
ansible-galaxy collection install f5networks-f5_modules-devel.tar.gz -p ./collections

Note

"-p" is the location in which the collection will be installed. This location should be defined in the path for ansible to search for collections. An example of this would be adding collections_paths = ./collections to your ansible.cfg

Running latest devel in EE

We also offer a new method of running the collection inside Ansible's Execution Environment container. The advantage of such approach is that any required package dependencies and minimum supported Python versions are installed in an isolated container which minimizes any environment related issues during runtime. More information on EE can be found here [execenv]. Use the below requirements.yml file when building EE container:

collections:
  - name: ansible.netcommon
    version: ">=2.0.0"
  - name: f5networks.f5_modules
    source: https://github.com/F5Networks/f5-ansible-f5modules#ansible_collections/f5networks/f5_modules
    type: git
    version: devel
