Ansible : AWX : Add Job Templates2022/09/27

This is the basic configuration for Ansible AWX to run Ansible Playbooks.
To run Playbooks on target Hosts on AWX, it needs to configure the following settings.
* Add inventories
* Add credentials
* Add projects
* Add job templates
To add job templates, configure like follows.
Before it, it needs to prepare Playbooks on Source Control repository you set on the project you added like here.
This example is based on the environment that Git repository is set with HTTP access enabled for the Source Control.
[1] Create a Playbook on Source Control repository that you'd like to execute on target Hosts from AWX.
If you set Git repository like this example, refer to follows as a way to create Playbooks.
# move to working directory

cd ~/work/project01
# create a test Playbook

vi helloworld.yml
# create new
# for example, touch a file [/tmp/helloworld.txt] with 644 on target Hosts
# for [hosts] value, specify the group name you set on an inventory you added
# ⇒ example [hosts] value below, that is the group name set on here of [6]

- hosts: CentOS
  - name: Test Task
      path: /tmp/helloworld.txt
      state: touch
      owner: root
      group: root
      mode: 0644

# push to repository

git add helloworld.yml

git commit helloworld.yml -m "Initial Commit"

git remote -v

origin  http://ubuntu@dlp.srv.world/git/project01.git (fetch)
origin  http://ubuntu@dlp.srv.world/git/project01.git (push)
git push origin master
