Experimental Module Support

F5 Networks accepts support cases for F5 modules that have shipped with supported versions of Ansible. See the preceding table for details.

F5 Modules are installed via the tagged Collection releases on Automation Hub and Ansible Galaxy. Updates only within the github repositories are considered to be experimental and not production-ready.

If an experimental module’s DOCUMENTATION block has a completed Tested platforms section, then the module is likely complete and ready for testing.
