Getting started

Example inventory

The role is included by default in the bootstrap.yml and common.yml playbook, therefore you don't need to do anything to enable it.

Example playbook

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

---

- name: Manage local host and network database
  hosts: [ 'debops_all_hosts', 'debops_service_netbase' ]
  become: True

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

  roles:

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

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