Ansible F5

Slack Status Build Status Shippable Status


This repository is the source for F5 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 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
ansible-galaxy collection install f5networks-f5_modules-devel.tar.gz -p ./collections


"-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


F5 supports the F5 Imperative Collection for Ansible delivered in Ansible Galaxy. Please refer to the F5 Ansible Support Policy for details.
