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_identity_provider.

New in version 3.6.0: of community.general

Synopsis

  • This module allows you to add, remove or modify Keycloak identity providers 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/15.0/rest-api/index.html.
