Foreman Ansible Modules v1.4.0 released

Okay, you know the drill, we have released Foreman Ansible Modules v1.4.0 and here is the best-of from that release!

ATIX in the Foreman Community

As outlined in Adding a vendor list to theforeman.org site, over the next few weeks, we will host some guest posts from different companies and consultants who offer professional services based on or extending Foreman for their customers. In this post, we hear from @maximilian from ATIX and how they’ve interacted with the Foreman community to date. If you want to contribute to this series, please contact @mcorr.

Foreman Config as Code

A while back, the Foreman developers released an Ansible Collection that contains modules to control almost any aspect of a Foreman server. This allows to apply the ‘Infrastructure as Code’ principle to my favorite OS Lifecycle and Deployment tool as well!

So, I dug in and made a role for Ansible which does just that!

TL;DR: Check it out on Github or Ansible Galaxy
