contrib

Files here provide an extension mechanism for Ansible similar to plugins. They are not maintained by the Ansible core team or installed with Ansible.

inventory

Before 2.4 introduced inventory plugins, inventory scripts were the only way to provide sources that were not built into Ansible. Inventory scripts allow you to store your hosts, groups, and variables in any way you like.

Starting with Ansible version 2.4, they are enabled via the ‘script’ inventory plugin. Examples of use include discovering inventory from EC2 or pulling it from Cobbler. These could also be used to interface with LDAP or the database.

chmod +x an inventory plugin and either name it /etc/ansible/hosts or use ansible -i /path/to/inventory/script. You might also need to copy a configuration file with the same name and/or set environment variables. The scripts or configuration files can provide more details.

vault

If the file passed to --vault-password-file has the executable bit set, Ansible will execute it and use the stdout of that execution as ‘the secret’. Vault scripts provided here use this facility to retrieve the vault secret from a number of sources.

contributions welcome

We are only accepting bugfixes for inventory scripts. If you want to add features or a new inventory type, target inventory plugins.
