  4. Ansible Rulebooks Simple declarative decisions through rules - name: Automatic

    Remediation of a web server hosts: all sources: - name: listen for alerts ansible.eda.alertmanager: host: port: 8000 rules: - name: restart web server condition: event.alert.labels.job == "fastapi" and event.alert.status == "firing" action: run_playbook: name: ansible.eda.start_app ▸ Events are processed by a rules engine ▹ Rules trigger based on conditions and actions can be carried out by the rules engine ▹ Rules are organized into Ansible Rulebooks ▹ Ansible rules can apply to events occurring on specific hosts or groups ▸ Conditional management of actions to events ▹ Simple YAML structure for logical conditions ▹ Events can trigger different types of actions: ▪ Run Ansible Playbooks ▪ Run Modules ▪ Post new events to the event handler ▸ YAML-like format familiarity ▹ Current Ansible users quickly learn and use Rulebook writing 4
  5. Red Hat wants to accelerate automation, from creation through execution

    Why? Because our customers are under increasing pressure to be more efficient, and turn to Ansible automation to help. The key to getting the most out of automation, is to drive it from an enterprise level. That involves multiple teams working together to create automation code. Code that scales across domains. Code that meets the varied needs of the teams using it. Code that is trusted and compliant.
  6. The AI revolution has come to automation Bridge skills gaps

    Accessible with natural language Expand into new automation domains Less time spent coding More focus on automation outcomes Better code Integrating generative AI into automation can greatly enhance the automation creation experience, helping creators produce better automation content, more quickly. The end result? Improved overall efficiency of an organization’s automation efforts, improving ROI and time to value.
