The F5 Modules for Ansible are supported on BIG-IP VE versions later than 12.0.0.
For a detailed list of BIG-IP VE versions that are currently supported, see this solution article.
When a version of BIG-IP reaches end of technical support, it is supported until the next Ansible release.
For example, if a version of BIG-IP reaches end of technical support on January 1, and Ansible releases a new version on March 1, then the F5 Modules for Ansible are supported on that version of BIG-IP until March 1.
F5 does not back-port changes to earlier versions of Ansible.
F5 develops the Ansible modules in tandem with the REST API, and newer versions of BIG-IP provide better support for the REST API.
F5 modules are included when you install Ansible. These modules are informally supported by F5 employees.
F5 modules are also in the F5 GitHub repository. These modules are also informally supported by F5 employees, but you should consider these modules to be experimental and not production-ready.
However, if the module’s DOCUMENTATION block has a completed
Tested platforms section, then the module is likely complete and ready for use. You can file bugs against modules that are complete.
