Script for ansible to pull an inventory from foreman
Generates inventory that Ansible can understand by making API requests to Foreman.
Information about the Foreman's instance can be stored in the foreman.ini file. A base_url, username and password need to be provided. The path to an alternate configuration file can be provided by exporting the FOREMAN_INI_PATH variable.
When run against a specific host, this script returns the following variables based on the data obtained from Foreman:
When run in
--list mode, instances are grouped by the following categories:
Execute uname on all instances in the dev group
$ ansible -i theforeman.py dev -m shell -a \"/bin/uname -a\"
This was submitted to the Ansible project, but the patch was not included. I'll maintain this script in this repository for now.
