Getting started

Example inventory

The debops.apt_mark role is included by default in the common.yml DebOps playbook; you don't need to add hosts to any Ansible groups to enable it.

Example playbook

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

---

- name: Mark APT package state
  hosts: [ 'debops_all_hosts', 'debops_service_apt_mark' ]
  become: True

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

  roles:

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

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