Automating Your Business Application's REST API with Ansible

 

In times of limited time, money, staff and overall resources, automation is essential for any IT operation to stay competitive. But too often automation focuses solely on single servers - only deploying software and configuration. But today's data center automation needs to integrate servers, services and applications with each other. And with Ansible you can answer to this challenge.

In this session, you will learn how you can use Ansible to talk to your business application's REST API - and to develop your own Ansible modules doing just that. The presentation starts with how to talk to generic REST APIs with existing Ansible modules digging through best practices and common challenges and finally showing how to write your own module to manage your business application' REST API.
