Community General Collection

Run Status Codecov

This repo contains the community.general Ansible Collection. The collection includes many modules and plugins supported by Ansible community which are not part of more specialized community collections.

You can find documentation for this collection on the Ansible docs site.

Tested with Ansible

Tested with the current Ansible 2.9 and 2.10 releases and the current development version of Ansible. Ansible versions before 2.9.10 are not supported.

External requirements

Some modules and plugins require external libraries. Please check the requirements for each plugin or module you use in the documentation to find out which requirements are needed.

Included content

Please check the included content on the Ansible Galaxy page for this collection or the documentation on the Ansible docs site.

Using this collection

Before using the General community collection, you need to install the collection with the ansible-galaxy CLI:

ansible-galaxy collection install community.general

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.general

See Ansible Using collections for more details.

Contributing to this collection

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

You can find more information in the developer guide for collections, and in the Ansible Community Guide.
