Install F5 Modules for Ansible

This document explains how to install the F5 Modules for Ansible.

Note: F5 does not officially support the F5 Modules for Ansible.

Install Python

Install the latest version of Python (2.7 minimum) if you do not already have it.

Install Ansible

Then, install Ansible (2.2.0 minimum):

F5 recommends that you install Ansible by using virtualenv/pip. For an example, see Install Ansible by using virtualenv.

Install Ansible Dependencies

In addition to Ansible, you should install a few additional Python modules.

  • f5-sdk
  • bigsuds
  • netaddr
  • deepdiff

At minimum, you should add f5-sdk.

You can install these modules by using pip (either globally or within a virtual environment). For example:

(myansible) $ pip install f5-sdk bigsuds netaddr deepdiff
