Example Workflows and Use Cases
Automating Central Workflows with Ansible
The subpages nested in this section go over workflow examples to showcase the potentiation of Aruba Central automation with the nifty Ansible technology.
Broadly speaking, workflows can be divided into two categories: initial deployment, and incremental updates. Together, these two processes longitudinally cover the entire scope of device configuration operations.
Initial Deployment and Provisioning
Initial deployment workflows provision new devices, bringing them online and making them functional. With Central, this involves making sure that devices are associated to groups that contain appropriate, applicable configuration information, as well as creating the requisite configuration information in those groups.
See Deploying Devices for details.
Incremental Config Updates
Incremental configuration update workflows modify the configurations of devices that are already online in Central. With Central, this involves creating/modifying/deleting templates and variables, as well as moving devices between groups.
See Incremental Changes for details.
