Managing Meaningful Inventories

 

The foundation of automation starts with a solid inventory. Inventory plugins are a powerful Ansible feature that allow you to leverage existing data sources in your environment to produce an Ansible inventory. Using out of the box plugins help you rapidly integrate with systems such as ServiceNow, Satellite Server, vCenter, AWS, Azure, Infoblox, and more. Want to use something else? In this session, learn to develop your own to create inventories that directly meet your business needs. Use this inventory to drive your infrastructure but also keep consistent data across other systems such as monitoring, access control, reporting, CMDB and more.
