community.general.keycloak_client module – Allows administration of Keycloak clients via Keycloak API

Note

This module is part of the community.general collection (version 4.8.1).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.general.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.general.keycloak_client.

Synopsis

  • This module allows the administration of Keycloak clients via the Keycloak REST API. It requires access to the REST API via OpenID Connect; the user connecting and the client being used must have the requisite access rights. In a default Keycloak installation, admin-cli and an admin user would work, as would a separate client definition with the scope tailored to your needs and a user having the expected roles.

  • The names of module options are snake_cased versions of the camelCase ones found in the Keycloak API and its documentation at https://www.keycloak.org/docs-api/8.0/rest-api/index.html. Aliases are provided so camelCased versions can be used as well.

  • The Keycloak API does not always sanity check inputs e.g. you can set SAML-specific settings on an OpenID Connect client for instance and vice versa. Be careful. If you do not specify a setting, usually a sensible default is chosen.
