Use the Ansible integration to execute Ansible playbooks in a secure and centrally managed environment.
The current state of art creates ad-hoc mechanisms to manage secrets, pass data, collect logs, and manage users for which the playbooks are being developed.
Using the Fylamynt | Ansible integration you can run your playbooks in a secure environment where the team workload can be orchestrated seamlessly.
The integration between Fylamynt and Ansible lets you:
Execute an Ansible playbook from your S3 bucket and collect logs.
Centrally manage the SSH keys used by Ansible to connect with target VMs to execute commands.
Monitor execution status and pair it with other integration actions that Fylamynt offers. For example, the execution status can be passed to a conditional node which branches out to either sending a Slack message or create a JIRA issue.
Configure Ansible in Fylamynt
Navigate to Settings > Integrations > Ansible.
Click Add integration to create and configure a new integration instance.
