Ansible best practices: The essentials

Watch recording from January 15, 2020

Ansible® is an agentless IT automation technology that helps teams manage complex multi-tier deployments and automate repetitive tasks. Its simple language (YAML, in the form of Ansible Playbooks) makes it easy for teams across an organization to share, vet, and manage automation content.

In this webinar, we’ll explain how Red Hat® Ansible Automation Platform users can develop and organize Ansible content for increased readability. Among the topics we’ll cover are:

  • Content organization, including directory layout, alternative directory layout, dynamic inventory with clouds, and how to differentiate staging vs. production.
  • Rolling updates.
  • Bundling Ansible modules with playbooks.
  • Whitespace and comments.
  • Version control.
  • Variables and vaults.
