Ansible – Config Generator – II

For the first part of this series, check this – 1st part of this series.

---
- hosts: local
  connection: local
  gather_facts: no

  tasks:
  - name: GET DATA
    include_vars: ./host_vars/file.yml

  - name: GENERATE CONFIG
    template:
      src: ./SVI.j2
      dest: ./{{ item.vlan }}.conf
    with_items: "{{ file_vlan }}"

 

This is the file.yml that is being referenced in the “include_vars”

---
file_vlan:
- { vrf: NET1, vlan: 502, vlanname: VLAN-502-NAME, net: 10.80.120.128/29 }
- { vrf: NET1, vlan: 503, vlanname: VLAN-503-NAME, net: 10.80.120.136/29 }

Compared to the 1st part of this series, we are moving the contents of the “with_items” to a separate YAML file and calling it based on the variable name “file_vlan” that is part of the file content.
