BIG-IP versions

F5 does not currently support the F5 Modules for Ansible. However, F5 provides informal support through a number of channels. For details, see Get help.

The informal support F5 provides is for BIG-IP version 12.0.0 and later.

For a detailed list of BIG-IP 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.

Experimental vs. production modules

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 an experimental module’s DOCUMENTATION block has a completed Tested platforms section, then the module is likely complete and ready for use. You can file issues against modules that are complete.

# Tested platforms:
#    - 12.0.0
