Ansible Playbook Bundle (APB)

An Ansible Playbook Bundle (APB) is a lightweight application definition (meta-container).

APBs offer more power and simple configuration by leveraging the power of Ansible. APBs have the following features:

  • Metadata contains list of required/optional parameters for use during deployment.
  • Leverages existing investment in Ansible Roles / Playbooks.
  • Actions under a directory with named playbooks and metadata defined in apb.yml.
  • Developer tooling to drive a guided approach.
  • Easily modified or extended.
