freeipa.ansible_freeipa collection (latest version: 1.12.1)

FreeIPA is an open-source identity management system that provides centralized authentication, authorization, and account information by storing data about users, groups, hosts, and other objects necessary to manage the security aspects of a network of computers. It integrates components like 389 Directory Server, MIT Kerberos, NTP, and DNS and provides a web UI and command-line interface for easier management. FreeIPA is designed to work on Linux/Unix systems and aims to provide a scalable and robust solution for managing identities and their policies in a unified way.

The freeipa.ansible_freeipa collection in Ansible comprises modules and roles designed for managing and automating tasks related to FreeIPA servers, clients, and entities such as users, groups, hosts, and DNS records. This collection allows administrators to automate the deployment, configuration, and management of FreeIPA infrastructure, making tasks like setting up FreeIPA servers, enrolling clients, managing user accounts, and configuring services more efficient and consistent. By leveraging this Ansible collection, system administrators can integrate identity management tasks into their broader automated infrastructure workflows, ensuring that FreeIPA environments are scalable and repeatable.
