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

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

New in community.general 6.1.0

Synopsis

  • This module allows you to get a Keycloak client secret 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.

  • When retrieving a new client secret, where possible provide the client’s id (not client_id) to the module. This removes a lookup to the API to translate the client_id into the client ID.

  • Note that this module returns the client secret. To avoid this showing up in the logs, please add no_log: true to the task.
