Pulp plugin to manage Ansible content, e.g. roles

Project description

This is the pulp_ansible repository which provides Pulp with the ability to manage Ansible content e.g. Roles.

All REST API examples bellow use httpie to perform the requests. The httpie commands below assume that the user executing the commands has a .netrc file in the home directory. The .netrc should have the following configuration:

machine localhost
login admin
password admin

If you configured the admin user with a different password, adjust the configuration accordingly. If you prefer to specify the username and password with each request, please see httpie documentation on how to do that.

This documentation makes use of the jq library to parse the json received from requests, in order to get the unique urls generated when objects are created. To follow this documentation as-is please install the jq library with:

$ sudo dnf install jq

    "_href": "http://localhost:8000/pulp/api/v3/distributions/1/",

Install the ansible kubernetes Role

Using a direct path

To install your role using a link to the direct tarball, do the following:

$ ansible-galaxy install http://localhost:8000/pulp/content/dev/elastic/elasticsearch/6.2.4.tar.gz,,elastic.elasticsearch

Using the Pulp Galaxy API

Alternatively, Pulp offers a built-in Galaxy API. To use this, set up your distribution in your ansible config (e.g. ~/.ansible.cfg or /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg):

server: http://localhost:8000/pulp_ansible/galaxy/dev

Then install your role using namespace and name:

$ ansible-galaxy install elastic.elasticsearch
- downloading role 'elasticsearch', owned by elastic
- downloading role from http://localhost:8000/pulp/content/dev/elastic/elasticsearch/6.2.4.tar.gz
- extracting elastic.elasticsearch to /home/vagrant/.ansible/roles/elastic.elasticsearch
- elastic.elasticsearch (6.2.4) was installed successfully
