Ansible Module

With the BlueCat Ansible Module, extend the functionality of your Ansible playbooks to include automation of tasks within the BlueCat platform.

What is it?

The Ansible BlueCat Module extends Ansible automation playbooks to include critical components like DNS. By adding the module in any playbook that automates provisioning of resources, IPAM/DNS/DHCP actions get automatically written into BlueCat Address Manager. Integration of the module ensures resources are never without DNS and are accessible the moment they are stood-up.

The challenge 

To keep pace with network demand and business transformation, network teams need to make networks dynamic and more scalable. Without end-to-end automation for deploying networks, applying options, or provisioning an IP address, hosts, and/or firewalls, accuracy and consistency risks increase.
