Automate Creation of Vsys


We are new to Ansible, and would like to automate the create of new vsys on a chassis. Currently we do this manually with a spreadsheet derived from information provided by our network team.

Are there any playbooks available that can be put together to automate the tasks in order to create a new vsys?

Create new virtual system - assign to interfaces

Create new virtual router - assign to vs and interfaces

Create new interfaces - and assign to vr

Create new zones - assign to interface

Add BGP information to vr


any help would be appreciated with steps do perform this action.


Thank you
