F5 and Ansible have been working together for some time now, with the goal to make application deployments easy through automation. For those wanting an introduction to the integration between F5 & Ansible, I recommend that you check out getting-started-with-ansible – a blog by my colleague Tim Rupp. Over the past few months there has been improvements to the existing F5 modules as well as the addition of new F5 modules which provide greater flexibility to manage and configure the BIG-IP platforms. Based on customer interest, we added modules for creation and configuration of Virtual servers, SNMP, VLANS, GTM configurations, etc. We will be addressing use-cases like onboarding and networking the BIG-IP, application deployment, pool-member monitoring and state, etc.
