Deep Dive with Network Connection Plugins


In Ansible 2.6 release we added network_cli/httpapi/netconf as first-class connection plugins within Ansible. Most of the network platforms supported by the community still continue to use the local connection type.

This talk will cover how to identify which connection plugin to use for a given network platform and do a deep dive into how to port existing modules from local connection to either nework_cli or httpapi or netconf for a particular network OS.
