The bubblewrap functionality in Ansible Tower limits which directories on the Tower file system are available for playbooks to see and use during playbook runs. You may find that you need to customize your bubblewrap settings in some cases. To fine tune your usage of bubblewrap, there are certain variables that can be set.
To disable or enable bubblewrap support for running jobs (playbook runs only), ensure you are logged in as the Admin user:
Click the Settings () icon from the left navigation bar.
Click the Jobs tab.
In the Enable Job Isolation, change the toggle button selection to OFF to disable bubblewrap support or select ON to enable it.
By default, the Tower will use the system’s
tmp directory (
/tmp by default) as its staging area. This can be changed in the Job Execution Path field of the Configure tower screen, or by updating the following entry in the settings file:
AWX_PROOT_BASE_PATH = "/opt/tmp"
If there is other information on the system that is sensitive and should be hidden, you can specify those in the Configure Tower screen in the Paths to Hide From Isolated Jobs or by updating the following entry in the settings file:
AWX_PROOT_HIDE_PATHS = ['/list/of/', '/paths']
If there are any directories that should specifically be exposed, you can specify those in the Configure Tower screen in the Paths to Expose to Isolated Jobs or by updating the following entry in the settings file:
AWX_PROOT_SHOW_PATHS = ['/list/of/', '/paths']
The primary file you may want to add to
/var/lib/awx/.ssh, if your playbooks need to use keys or settings defined there.
The above fields can be found in the Jobs Settings window:
If you made changes in the settings file, be sure to restart services with the
ansible-tower-service restartcommand after your changes have been saved.
