Extending Ansible automation

Ansible is a project ecosystem that extends automation capabilities to a wide range of use cases. For example, the Ansible ecosystem provides tooling to:

  • Create consistent, reliable playbooks for trusted automation
  • Add automation to your workflows
  • Build and use containerized control nodes
  • Use community collections for automation
  • Build a network mesh for executing automation jobs

The goal of the Ansible ecosystem documentation is to provide you with procedures for these various use cases.

Share your automation knowledge

We love to learn too! The Ansible community encourages everyone to share what they know about automation, whether it's writing playbooks or building automation solutions. If you see something missing, have an idea for new content, or want to leave some feedback, get involved. Go to the repository to fork and submit a pull request or create a new issue that captures the details.
