Local Stuff

Ansible configuration that should be local and ignored by Git.

Projects: c2platform/rws/ansible-gis


In Ansible Inventory Projects create a file group_vars/all/local_stuff.yml for Ansible configuration you don’t want to share with others. This file is in .gitignore so you won’t accidentally add it to the git repo.


Problem

Local configuration is accidentally shared with team members.

Context

During development we sometimes want to configure something locally and not add configuration to version control and share with team members. For example we want to configure Ansible to use a local proxy server.

Solution

Create a file group_vars/all/local_stuff.yml. This file is in .gitignore so you won’t accidentally add it to the git repo.
