Ansible - Automating NGFW Configuration

About Ansible Automation

Ansible is a very powerful open source automation language, it uses modules to communicate with vendor specific devices. What makes Ansible unique from other management tools is that it is also a deployment and orchestration tool. In many respects, Ansible helps provide large productivity gains to a wide variety of automation challenges. The Palo Alto Networks Ansible integration project utilizes Ansible to help organizations automate configuration and management of the Palo Alto Networks Platform. The Live Community provides a central place to learn how to utilize this technology, get help from others using it, and more.
