I am using this repository to document my journey learning about DevOps. I began this process on January 1, 2022, and plan to continue until March 31. I will be dedicating one hour each day, including weekends, to gaining a foundational understanding of the various aspects of DevOps. This will be a 90-day intensive study period. 2022 & 2023 inc.

Kubernetes Collection for Ansible

IMPORTANT The community.kubernetes collection is being renamed to kubernetes.core. As of version 2.0.0, the collection has been replaced by deprecated redirects for all content to kubernetes.core. If you are using FQCNs starting with community.kubernetes, please update them to kubernetes.core.

This repo hosts the community.kubernetes (a.k.a. kubernetes.core) Ansible Collection.

The collection includes a variety of Ansible content to help automate the management of applications in Kubernetes and OpenShift clusters, as well as the provisioning and maintenance of clusters themselves.

Installation and Usage

Installing the Collection from Ansible Galaxy

Before using the Kubernetes collection, you need to install it with the Ansible Galaxy CLI:

ansible-galaxy collection install community.kubernetes

You can also include it in a requirements.yml file and install it via ansible-galaxy collection install -r requirements.yml, using the format:

  - name: community.kubernetes
    version: 2.0.1

Installing the OpenShift Python Library

Content in this collection requires the OpenShift Python client to interact with Kubernetes' APIs. You can install it with:

pip3 install openshift

Using modules from the Kubernetes Collection in your playbooks

It's preferable to use content in this collection using their Fully Qualified Collection Namespace (FQCN), for example community.kubernetes.k8s_info:

- hosts: localhost
  gather_facts: false
  connection: local

    - name: Ensure the myapp Namespace exists.
        api_version: v1
        kind: Namespace
        name: myapp
        state: present

    - name: Ensure the myapp Service exists in the myapp Namespace.
        state: present
          apiVersion: v1
          kind: Service
            name: myapp
            namespace: myapp
            type: LoadBalancer
            - port: 8080
              targetPort: 8080
              app: myapp

    - name: Get a list of all Services in the myapp namespace.
        kind: Service
        namespace: myapp
      register: myapp_services

    - name: Display number of Services in the myapp namespace.
        var: myapp_services.resources | count

If upgrading older playbooks which were built prior to Ansible 2.10 and this collection's existence, you can also define collections in your play and refer to this collection's modules as you did in Ansible 2.9 and below, as in this example:

- hosts: localhost
  gather_facts: false
  connection: local

    - community.kubernetes

    - name: Ensure the myapp Namespace exists.
        api_version: v1
        kind: Namespace
        name: myapp
        state: present

For documentation on how to use individual modules and other content included in this collection, please see the links in the 'Included content' section earlier in this README.

Testing and Development

If you want to develop new content for this collection or improve what's already here, the easiest way to work on the collection is to clone it into one of the configured COLLECTIONS_PATHS, and work on it there.

See Contributing to community.kubernetes.

Testing with ansible-test

The tests directory contains configuration for running sanity and integration tests using ansible-test.

You can run the collection's test suites with the commands:

make test-sanity
make test-integration

Testing with molecule

There are also integration tests in the molecule directory which are meant to be run against a local Kubernetes cluster, e.g. using KinD or Minikube. To setup a local cluster using KinD and run Molecule:

kind create cluster
make test-molecule

Publishing New Versions

Releases are automatically built and pushed to Ansible Galaxy for any new tag. Before tagging a release, make sure to do the following:

  1. Update the version in the following places:
    1. The version in galaxy.yml
    2. This README's requirements.yml example
    3. The DOWNSTREAM_VERSION in utils/
    4. The VERSION in Makefile
  2. Update the CHANGELOG:
    1. Make sure you have antsibull-changelog installed.
    2. Make sure there are fragments for all known changes in changelogs/fragments.
    3. Run antsibull-changelog release.
  3. Commit the changes and create a PR with the changes. Wait for tests to pass, then merge it once they have.
  4. Tag the version in Git and push to GitHub.
  5. Manually build and release the kubernetes.core collection (see following section).

After the version is published, verify it exists on the Kubernetes Collection Galaxy page.

Publishing kubernetes.core

Until the contents of repository are moved into a new kubernetes.core repository on GitHub, this repository is the source of both the kubernetes.core and community.kubernetes repositories on Ansible Galaxy.

To publish the kubernetes.core collection on Ansible Galaxy, do the following:

  1. Run make downstream-release (on macOS, add LC_ALL=C before the command).

The process for uploading a supported release to Automation Hub is documented separately.
