Reporting bugs and requesting features
Reporting a bug
Ansible practices responsible disclosure. To report security-related bugs, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for an immediate response. Do not submit a ticket or post to any public groups.
Bugs in ansible-core
Before reporting a bug, search in GitHub for already reported issues and open pull requests to see if someone has already addressed your issue. Unsure if you found a bug? Report the behavior on the mailing list or community chat first.
Also, use the mailing list or chat to discuss whether the problem is in
ansible-core or a collection, and for “how do I do this” type questions.
You need a free GitHub account to report bugs that affect:
a plugin that remained in the ansible/ansible repo
the overall functioning of Ansible
How to write a good bug report
If you find a bug, open an issue using the issue template.
Fill out the issue template as completely and as accurately as possible. Include:
your Ansible version
the expected behavior and what you’ve tried, including the exact commands you were using or tasks you are running.
the current behavior and why you think it is a bug
the steps to reproduce the bug
a minimal reproducible example and comments describing examples
any relevant configurations and the components you used
any relevant output plus
ansible -vvvv(debugging) output
add the output of
ansible-test-env --showwhen filing bug reports involving
When sharing YAML in playbooks, ensure that you preserve formatting using code blocks. For multiple-file content, use gist.github.com, more durable than Pastebin content.
Requesting a feature
Before you request a feature, check what is planned for future Ansible Releases. Check existing pull requests tagged with feature.
To get your feature into Ansible, submit a pull request, either against ansible-core or a collection. See also Requirements to merge your PR. For
ansible-core, you can also open an issue in ansible/ansible or in a corresponding collection repository (To find the correct issue tracker, refer to Bugs in collections ).
