Ansible for Network Automation

Ansible Network modules extend the benefits of simple, powerful, agentless automation to network administrators and teams. Ansible Network modules can configure your network stack, test and validate existing network state, and discover and correct network configuration drift.

If you’re new to Ansible, or new to using Ansible for network management, start with Network Getting Started. If you are already familiar with network automation with Ansible, see Network Advanced Topics.

For documentation on using a particular network module, consult the list of all network modules. Network modules for various hardware are supported by different teams including the hardware vendors themselves, volunteers from the Ansible community, and the Ansible Network Team.
