Ansible is an IT automation tool that allows you to configure, deploy, and orchestrate advanced tasks, such as continuous deployments or zero downtime rolling updates. The IONOS module for Ansible leverages the IONOS Cloud API.

Getting Started

The module is also available on Ansible Galaxy.

The IONOS module for Ansible requires the following:

NOTE: The Ansible module does not support Python 2. It only supports Python >= 3.5.

Before you begin you will need an IONOS account. The credentials from your registration will be used to authenticate against the IONOS Cloud API.

Ansible must also be installed before the IONOS module can be used. Please review the official Ansible Documentation for more information on installing Ansible.

The IONOS module requires the IONOS SDK for Python to be installed. This can easily be accomplished with Python PyPI:

pip install ionoscloud
pip install ionoscloud-dbaas-postgres
pip install ionoscloud-dbaas-mongo
pip install ionoscloud-container-registry
pip install ionoscloud-dataplatform
pip install ionoscloud-cert-manager


Run the following command:

ansible-galaxy collection install ionoscloudsdk.ionoscloud
