How to install terraform using ansible pull

hemanth22 profile image Hemanth B ・1 min read

Recently, i have learnt how to use ansible pull from youtube videos, and tried practically.

I have created terraform installation ansible playbook, that will execute with ansible pull.

By executing below playbook from anywhere, that will connect to AWS EC2 instance and it will pull terraform installation and will install terraform automatically in aws ec2 instance, and it will create a cron job as well.

Create a pre-requiste playbook as below.

main.yaml

---
- hosts: servers
  remote_user: centos
  become: true
  become_method: sudo
  gather_facts: no
  tasks:
    - name: Install pip on the servers
      yum:
        name: python-pip
        state: latest
        update_cache: true
      become: true

    - name: Install pip3 on the servers
      yum:
        name: python3-pip
        state: latest        
      become: true

    - name: Ensure ansible is installed on servers
      pip:
        name: ansible

    - name: Executing ansible-pull on servers
      command: ansible-pull -U https://gitlab.com/hemanth22/ansible-pull-terraform.git
