tower – Ansible dynamic inventory plugin for Ansible Tower¶
New in version 2.7.
Reads inventories from Ansible Tower.
Supports reading configuration from both YAML config file and environment variables.
If reading from the YAML file, the file name must end with tower.(yml|yaml) or tower_inventory.(yml|yaml), the path in the command would be /path/to/tower_inventory.(yml|yaml). If some arguments in the config file are missing, this plugin will try to fill in missing arguments by reading from environment variables.
If reading configurations from environment variables, the path in the command must be @tower_inventory.
# Before you execute the following commands, you should make sure this file is in your plugin path, # and you enabled this plugin. # Example for using tower_inventory.yml file plugin: tower host: your_ansible_tower_server_network_address username: your_ansible_tower_username password: your_ansible_tower_password inventory_id: the_ID_of_targeted_ansible_tower_inventory # Then you can run the following command. # If some of the arguments are missing, Ansible will attempt to read them from environment variables. # ansible-inventory -i /path/to/tower_inventory.yml --list # Example for reading from environment variables: # Set environment variables: # export TOWER_HOST=YOUR_TOWER_HOST_ADDRESS # export TOWER_USERNAME=YOUR_TOWER_USERNAME # export TOWER_PASSWORD=YOUR_TOWER_PASSWORD # export TOWER_INVENTORY=THE_ID_OF_TARGETED_INVENTORY # Read the inventory specified in TOWER_INVENTORY from Ansible Tower, and list them. # The inventory path must always be @tower_inventory if you are reading all settings from environment variables. # ansible-inventory -i @tower_inventory --list
