Use Ansible® automation hub as your trusted source for Ansible Content Collections.

Jump to section


Ansible automation hub is a central repository to discover, download, and manage Ansible Content Collections—bundles of modules, plug-ins, roles, and documentation from Red Hat and our partners. Included with your Red Hat® Ansible Automation Platform subscription, the Ansible Content Collections found in automation hub helps teams automate new projects faster.

Ansible automation hub features Red Hat Ansible Certified Content—prebuilt, fully supported, and certified automation content from Red Hat and many of our 60+ partners, including Cisco, Microsoft, CyberArk, Dynatrace, and ServiceNow. It also includes validated content–prebuilt playbooks and roles that you can use, customize, and learn from.

Private automation hub is an on-premise repository that allows enterprises with disconnected environments to manage, share, and curate content generated internally and control access to Red Hat and partner-created content.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need a subscription to access Ansible automation hub?

Ansible automation hub is included with your subscription to Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. If you’re a subscriber, you have free and unlimited access to any content available.

Red Hat Ansible Certified Content is prebuilt, fully supported, and certified automation content from Red Hat and many of our 60+ partners. It helps you integrate with Red Hat and partner platforms.

Ansible validated content is similar to Red Hat Ansible Certified Content, but support is not provided by Red Hat. It offers guidance on how to perform operations or tasks in Red Hat and partner platforms. This content is created by or with Red Hat and made available in your private automation hub.
