End-to-end automation?


I am newbie to ManageIQ/CloudForms and I’d like to ask you if it’s possible to automate ManageIQ and/or CloudForms installation and configuration end-to-end, so no manual changes/configuration steps will be needed?

I know, that there are Automation possibilities (Automate, Ansible), but I am not sure if I can do everything automatically without web UI.



Not quite yet, there are some Ansible playbooks that can perform some of it, and the longer-term goal is to be able to do exactly what you’re after but we still have some work to do.


Thanks for reply. I guess that the necessary work you are referring is related to the containerisation of ManageIQ/CF and full implementation of Ansible. Is there some time frame for the development?

Thanks in advance.
