Module Maintenance & Support

To help identify maintainers and understand how the included modules are officially supported, each module now has associated metadata that provides additional clarity for maintenance and support.


Core modules are maintained by the Ansible Engineering Team. These modules are integral to the basic foundations of the Ansible distribution.


Network modules are maintained by the Ansible Network Team. Please note there are additional networking modules that are categorized as Certified or Community not maintained by Ansible.


Certified modules are part of a future planned program currently in development.


Community modules are submitted and maintained by the Ansible community. These modules are not maintained by Ansible, and are included as a convenience.

Issue Reporting

If you believe you have found a bug in a module and are already running the latest stable or development version of Ansible, first look at the issue tracker in the Ansible repo to see if an issue has already been filed. If not, please file one.

Should you have a question rather than a bug report, inquiries are welcome on the ansible-project Google group or on Ansible’s “#ansible” channel, located on

For development-oriented topics, use the ansible-devel Google group or Ansible’s #ansible and #ansible-devel channels, located on You should also read Community Information & Contributing, Testing Ansible, and Developing Modules.

The modules are hosted on GitHub in a subdirectory of the Ansible repo.

NOTE: If you have a Red Hat Ansible Engine product subscription, please follow the standard issue reporting process via the Red Hat Customer Portal.
