README.md

ansible-nginx-gen

This role/playbook will generate TCP/UDP stream configuration files for NGINX based on the backend servers and ports provided, and update your AWS security groups to allow access to those ports.

This example uses 3 NGINX servers (nginx01/02/03) and 3 backend servers in 3 AZs (backend_servers_a/b/c) weighted with regards to their zone.

  • Populate hosts file with your NGINX servers and connection params
  • In main.yml:
    • Replace 172.20 addresses with the addresses of your backend servers, those are placeholders
    • Populate the TCP/TLS/UDP ports lists as needed
    • Populate cert_path and key_path to point to your cert and key
  • If using AWS
    • Populate the CIDR you need to allow access from and security group IDs, if using AWS, otherwise set aws to false
    • Make sure you have the aws cli installed, pip install awscli, and configured with your credentials
  • This generates TCP/UDP streams only, not HTTP, so you must have the following in your NGINX config somewhere:
    stream {
            include /etc/nginx/streams/*;
    }
    

Example playbook, main.yml:

To run it:

ansible-playbook main.yml
