A data driven tool to run workflows using Ansible.

Project description

PyPI Package Documentation Status Repository License

Photon is a data driven tool designed to run workflows against an AZ using Ansible.

A workflow is comprised of one more more playbooks, each configurable with its own flags and options to be passed down to underlying call to ansible-playbook. It supports the ability to resume a workflow from any point in the event of a playbook failure.

Quick Start

Install photon using pip:

$ pip install python-photon

Create a file called photon.yml and define at least one AZ and workflow.

    inventory: path/to/inventory
      - path: playbooks/tests/update_passwords.yml


azs.<name>.inventory is the only required value when defining an AZ. workflows.<name>.playbooks is the only required value when defining a workflow.

To execute a workflow against an AZ, simply run:

$ photon test_password_playbooks proxmox
