Community General Collection
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.
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.
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.
Using this collection
Before using the General community collection, you need to install the collection with the
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:
collections: - 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

We have a dedicated Working Group for Ansible development.
