Getting Started

It is as simple as:

- hosts:
  - ny-fw01
  gather_facts: no
    ansible_connection: local
    - "~/.clicap.vault.yml"
  - name: collect the output of all relevant operating system commands
    action: clicap output=/tmp/data no_host_key_check=yes on_error=continue

Finally, run the playbook:

ansible-playbook -i hosts playbooks/collect_all.yml --vault-password-file ~/.vault.passwd -vvv
