Expand Ansible Use Cases

Itential’s rich network automation capabilities enable organizations to expand the types of network changes automated with Ansible to include orchestration changes crossing multiple, diverse automation domains.

Build Network Intelligent Workflows

Within the Itential workflow builder, users can easily leverage Ansible Playbooks, Modules, and Roles, along with Itential’s pre-built integrations and adapters, for comprehensive network automation.

Discover Ansible Modules & Roles

Itential dynamically discovers Ansible Modules, Roles and other network configuration actions in your environment, making them available for use within network intelligent workflows.

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.


Supercharge Ansible for Networking with Itential

Itential Automation Gateway

Automation Gateway (previously Ansible Manager) is a robust, standalone application that accelerates and simplifies the use of Ansible for Network Automation, by providing a set of standardized APIs as a front-end to Ansible Playbooks, Modules, and Roles. With powerful features like Centralized Management, Dynamic Discovery, Federation & Decoration, and Visual Representation of Ansible Playbooks, Modules and Roles you can take your Ansible deployment to the next level. Additionally, teams can leverage Itential’s intelligent network automation platform to seamlessly build intelligent network workflows that incorporate Ansible Playbooks, Modules, and Roles.


Integrated with Ansible Tower

Itential’s enhanced network automation supports Ansible Tower’s single pane of glass across DevOps, App Dev and NetOps teams, including a visual dashboard, job scheduling, integrated notification and graphical inventory management. Itential was purpose-built for the network and when paired with Ansible Tower, enables true multi-domain automation.

Itential Modules for Ansible

With Itential’s Ansible modules, easily call Itential from playbooks and Ansible Tower job templates. This enables teams to easily leverage Itential’s maintenance automation and workflow capabilities. Itential modules for Ansible are available on GitHub.
“Itential has been a huge asset to our network automation teams. We’d reached a point where we were receiving a lot of benefit from work we’d done with Ansible but, we needed to both expand the team members who could participate in our network automation projects and expand the uses cases toward more orchestration-like activities. Itential’s software took our Ansible deployment to the next level and we’ve really just scratched the surface of what their products can do.”

Enable Network Engineers to Automate with Ansible

Ansible is a powerful tool for network automation teams, but it can require a deep knowledge of both application script development along with a background in network engineering. Itential greatly simplifies network automation with Ansible by providing both a low-code development interface and a network intelligent workflow engine.

Network Automation Workflow Development & Visualization

Create and visualize advanced automation workflows that integrate Ansible capabilities with the rest of your network automation ecosystem and span all of your Ansible deployments as well as other orchestration and controller domains such as SD-WAN and cloud.

Network API

Itential provides a single network API by combining and integrating all of your configuration tools, device controllers and network service orchestrators into a single system interface, fueling your organization’s ability to leverage software-driven network capabilities. This allows you to integration your IT Service Management, monitoring, inventory and BSS/OSS systems once for the entire network automation ecosystem saving substantial time and money while mitigating complexity.

Next-generation Network Inventory Engine

Traditional network inventory tools rely on cached data, CMDB data imports, and stale inventory information. Itential creates and manages a next-generation network inventory engine that is always up-to-date and leverages a real-time federated data model.
