Ansible Galaxy

Kayobe uses a number of Ansible roles hosted on Ansible Galaxy. The role dependencies are tracked in requirements.yml, and specify required versions. The process for changing a Galaxy role is as follows:

  1. If required, develop changes for the role. This may be done outside of Kayobe, or by modifying the role in place during development. If upstream changes to the role have already been made, this step can be skipped.
  2. Commit changes to the role, typically via a Github pull request.
  3. Request that a tagged release of the role be made, or make one if you have the necessary privileges.
  4. Ensure that automatic imports are configured for the role using e.g. a TravisCI webhook notification, or perform a manual import of the role on Ansible Galaxy.
  5. Modify the version in requirements.yml to match the new release of the role.
