community.general.keycloak_client_rolemapping module – Allows administration of Keycloak client_rolemapping with the Keycloak API

Note

This module is part of the community.general collection (version 5.6.0).

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_rolemapping.

New in version 3.5.0: of community.general

Synopsis

  • This module allows you to add, remove or modify Keycloak client_rolemapping with 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.

  • Attributes are multi-valued in the Keycloak API. All attributes are lists of individual values and will be returned that way by this module. You may pass single values for attributes when calling the module, and this will be translated into a list suitable for the API.

  • When updating a client_rolemapping, where possible provide the role ID to the module. This removes a lookup to the API to translate the name into the role ID.
