Frequently asked questions

An Ansible Content Collection, or “collection” for short, is a format for organizing content. It has a directory structure with complimentary tooling that includes multiple content types, modules, plug-ins, roles, and more—in a singular portable format.
A collection has a consistent format that allows content creators to ship bundles of modules, plug-ins, roles, and documentation together. The collections are tested to work with specific versions of Ansible Automation Platform. Collections are developed and released asynchronously from releases of Ansible Automation Platform—so you get more content, faster.  
Red Hat Ansible Certified Content Collections integrate into specific Red Hat and partner platforms. Validated content targets operations and is generally packaged per use case—and  sometimes for a specific use case on a specific platform.

While Red Hat Ansible Certified Content Collections focus on how to integrate with Red Hat and partner platforms (typically in the form of modules, roles, playbooks, plug ins, and/or documentation), Ansible validated content offers opinionated guidance for how to perform operations or tasks in Red Hat and partner platforms (typically in the form of roles or playbooks). Some validated content may build upon a Red Hat Ansible Certified Content Collection to streamline the use of the collection.

  • You can access the list of fully supported Red Hat Ansible Certified Collections in Ansible automation hub in the Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console or in this knowledge base article.
  • Beginning with the release of Ansible Automation Platform 2.3, you can access Ansible validated content directly through private automation hub. 

No, only Red Hat Ansible Certified Content is supported. 

Because Ansible validated content is customizable, it is not supported. However, it is curated and tested by Red Hat to work in production with Ansible Automation Platform. 

Community content that resides in is only supported by the community and is not tested to work in production with Ansible Automation Platform. 

The term "validated" in this case refers to content created either by Red Hat or in coordination with Red Hat so that we know it works and is from a trusted, reliable source. 
Ansible validated content is intended to help you jump-start your automation with a set of best practices. It has been tested to ensure it works, however, because it is customizable, it is difficult for Red Hat to control and support every scenario in our customers' downstream environments.

The next evolution of Ansible Automation Platform is here.
