Using Ansible in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure OCI

Today a short recipe for Ansible in Oracle Cloud (OCI)

Install it:

brew update
brew install openssl
brew upgrade openssl
brew install python
pip install virtualenv
virtualenv oci_sdk_env
source oci_sdk_env/bin/activate
pip install oci
pip install oci==2.1.3
pip install --upgrade pip
pip install ansible
git clone
cd oci-ansible-modules
pip install idna

Prepare it:

Create test.yml file and put your own cloud account values in bold as follows:

- name : List summary of existing buckets in OCI object storage
  connection: local
  hosts: localhost
    - name: List bucket facts
         namespace_name: 'mxlxxhxtxlsxntxrnxtxxnxl'
         compartment_id: 'ocid1.compartment.oc1..aaaaaaaa3sz43qrfhsjmbibsrc6e7c2ftlt53gfnzifvlow2yoz7hk3ni2jq'
      register: result
    - name: Dump result
        msg: '{{result}}'

Test it:

ansible-plabook test.yml
(oci_sdk_env) MacBook-Pro:oci-ansible-modules javiermugueta$ ansible-playbook test.yml 
 [WARNING]: Unable to parse /etc/ansible/hosts as an inventory source
 [WARNING]: No inventory was parsed, only implicit localhost is available
 [WARNING]: provided hosts list is empty, only localhost is available. Note that the implicit localhost does not match 'all'
