Getting started

Example inventory

To install Tinyproxy on a host, it needs to be added to a specific Ansible inventory group:

[debops_service_tinyproxy]
hostname

Example playbook

If you are using this role without DebOps, here's an example Ansible playbook that uses the debops.tinyproxy role:

---

- name: Manage Tinyproxy
  hosts: [ 'debops_service_tinyproxy' ]
  become: True

  environment: '{{ inventory__environment | d({})
                   | combine(inventory__group_environment | d({}))
                   | combine(inventory__host_environment  | d({})) }}'

  roles:

    - role: debops.etc_services
      tags: [ 'role::etc_services', 'skip::etc_services' ]
      etc_services__dependent_list:
        - '{{ tinyproxy__etc_services__dependent_list }}'

    - role: debops.ferm
      tags: [ 'role::ferm', 'skip::ferm' ]
      ferm__dependent_rules:
        - '{{ tinyproxy__ferm__dependent_rules }}'

    - role: debops.tinyproxy
      tags: [ 'role::tinyproxy', 'skip::tinyproxy' ]

Ansible tags

You can use Ansible --tags or --skip-tags parameters to limit what tasks are performed during Ansible run. This can be used after a host was first configured to speed up playbook execution, when you are sure that most of the configuration is already in the desired state.

Available role tags:

role::tinyproxy
Main role tag, should be used in the playbook to execute all of the role tasks as well as role dependencies.
