The Itential for Red Hat Ansible solution includes a rich set of features, purpose-built to enhance and expand Ansible’s network automation capabilities.

 

Centralized Management

Users can manage all types of CLI automations from distributed environments in your organization from a single location. Users can now leverage Scripts, Ansible, Terraform, NetMiko, and Nornir artifacts that they didn’t have access to before.

Visual Representation

Automation Gateway provides a consolidated visual representation of all Script types (python, perl, C, bash, etc.), Ansible (Playbooks, Modules, Roles), and Terraform (Plans), NetMiko (Python), Nornir (Modules), and devices from across all network deployments in your organization, via an intuitive user interface.

Dynamically Discover Ansible Modules & Roles

Dynamically discover the CLI automation assets in your environment such as Ansible Modules, Roles, and Playbooks, making them available for use via APIs. Any changes made to these artifacts by users are dynamically reflected as well. Automation Gateway also enables users to try out the APIs in an interactive manner before executing them. Your Ansible assets can also be used to build network automations within Itential’s Network Automation Platform.

Federate & Decorate Ansible Playbooks, Modules, & Roles

Itential enables Ansible users to enhance their Playbooks, Modules, and Roles for easier consumption, and dynamically identifies and leverages both certified and custom developed Ansible automations.

With decoration users have the flexibility to write/edit JSON schemas to modify metadata such as input parameters, descriptions, or types. Users can also rollback any changes made to the JSON properties of a Script, Ansible (Playbook, Module, Role), Terraform (Plans), NetMiko (Python), Nornir (Module) or device by resetting the schema to its original property settings.
