Getting started

Default configuration

The role will check if Postfix was installed on a host by looking for specific Ansible fact defined by the debops.postfix role. If Postfix is detected, debops.saslauthd will automatically configure a smtpd authentication service which can be used by Postfix.

Example inventory

To install and configure Cyrus SASL daemon on a host, the host needs to be present in the [debops_service_saslauthd] Ansible inventory group.


Example playbook

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


- name: Manage Cyrus SASL authentication service
  collections: [ 'debops.debops', 'debops.roles01',
                 'debops.roles02', 'debops.roles03' ]
  hosts: [ 'debops_service_saslauthd' ]
  become: True

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

        - '{{ ldap__python__dependent_packages2 }}'

    - role: ldap
