The AOS 8 Developer Hub

Welcome to the AOS 8 developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with AOS 8 APIs as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

Using the AOS WLAN Ansible Role

Introduction to the AOS8 Ansible Role

This section talks about our Ansible resources to help you in your automation journey. We have published an Ansible Role with API based modules, and other SSH modules to build a variety of workflows for AOS 8 devices.

AOS WLAN Role

This Ansible Network role provides a set of platform dependent configuration management modules specifically designed for the AOS Mobility Conductors and Standalone Managed Devices. You can also visit Ansible Galaxy to access the AOS WLAN role or follow the instructions below.

Requirements

  • Python 2.7 or 3.5+
  • Ansible 2.8.1 or later
  • Minimum supported AOS firmware version 8.0

Installation

Through Github, use the following command. Use option -f to overwrite current role version:

ansible-galaxy install git+https://github.com/aruba/aos-wlan-ansible-role.git

Through Galaxy:

ansible-galaxy install arubanetworks.aos_wlan_role

Inventory Variables

The variables that should be defined in your inventory for your AOS host are:

  • ansible_host: IP address of mobility conductor/standalone in A.B.C.D format
  • ansible_user: Username for mobility conductor/standalone in plaintext format
  • ansible_password: Password for mobility conductor/standalone in plaintext format
  • ansible_connection: Must always be set to httpapi
  • ansible_network_os: Must always be set to aos
  • ansible_httpapi_port: Must always be set to 4343
  • ansible_httpapi_use_ssl: Set True as AOS uses port 4343 for REST
  • ansible_httpapi_validate_certs: Set True or False depending on if Ansible should attempt to validate certificates

Sample Inventories:

Sample inventory.yml:

all:
  hosts:
    mobility_conductor:
      ansible_host: 10.1.1.1
      ansible_user: admin
      ansible_password: password
      ansible_connection: httpapi
      ansible_network_os: aos
      ansible_httpapi_port: 4343
      ansible_httpapi_validate_certs: True
      ansible_httpapi_use_ssl: True

Sample inventory.ini:

aos_1 ansible_host=10.1.1.1 ansible_user=admin ansible_password=password ansible_connection=httpapi ansible_network_os=aos ansible_httpapi_port=4343 ansible_httpapi_validate_certs=True ansible_httpapi_use_ssl=True

Example Playbook

If role installed through Github
set role to aos-wlan-ansible-role:

    ---
    -  hosts: all
       roles:
        - role: aos-wlan-ansible-role
       tasks:
         - name: Create a radius server
           aos_api_config:
             method: POST
             config_path: /md/SLR
             data:
              - rad_server:
                  - rad_server_name: test-dot1x
                    rad_host:
                      host: 1.1.1.1

If role installed through Galaxy
set role to arubanetworks.aos_wlan_role:

    ---
    -  hosts: all
       roles:
        - role: arubanetworks.aos_wlan_role
       tasks:
         - name: Create a radius server
           aos_api_config:
             method: POST
             config_path: /md/SLR
             data:
              - rad_server:
                  - rad_server_name: test-dot1x
                    rad_host:
                      host: 1.1.1.1

Using the above example and available modules you can create multiple workflows to perform initial deployments, execute incremental changes as well as monitor and fetch information.
