ARA Records Ansible
ARA Records Ansible playbook runs and makes the recorded data available and intuitive for users and systems.
ARA doesn't run your playbooks for you: it integrates with Ansible as a callback plugin wherever it is.
# Install ARA pip install ara # Load environment variables that inform Ansible to use ARA regardless # of its location or python version source <(python -m ara.setup.env) # Run your Ansible playbook or commands # ansible-playbook myplaybook.yml # Start the ARA standalone webserver ara-manage runserver # Browse http://127.0.0.1:9191
Refer to the documentation for more information.
ARA has four main components:
- An Ansible callback plugin to record playbook runs into a local or remote database
- The ara_record and ara_read pair of Ansible modules to record and read persistent data with ARA
- A CLI client to query the database
- A dynamic, database-driven web interface that can also be generated and served from static files
What does the web interface look like ?
