Ansible module for configuration of Ruckus Wireless products

Howdy, 

Did someone already create Ansible modules for Ruckus? 

There are for Aruba http://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/aruba_command_module.html and http://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/aruba_config_module.html#aruba-config

Thanks!

Never heard of "Ansible" before, but it's not likely that Ruckus will provide any Aruba remote run commands using their mobility controller, if you're not just trying to SPAM us.

God, what is with the attitude from the "official" reps here?  Seriously, you haven't heard of one of the biggest DevOps tools in the world so this must be spam?  I enjoy the product, but this kind of nonsense makes me talk down the support/community when asked about the product vs. competitors.

Please see the Aug 10th post below, that I've let Product Marketing know!

Hi Michael,

It is not a spam. I am sorry you thought that. 

Ansible is used for infrastructure automation (Infrastructure as code which is one of the DevOps methodology). It would be useful to automate AP provisioning, AP configuration (for example when you want to move a set of managed AP from one ZD to anonther).

Since this is possible for other wifi vendors, I thought that maybe someone is working on this for Ruckus. That is the reason why I asked the question in the forum and did not open a case with Support.

alexf is correct.  Ansible is a popular open-source multi-vendor configuration tool with many network plugins.  We use it to manage our Cisco network, even though it is not made by Cisco.  Ruckus should seriously consider building a plugin for Ansible to stay relevant with new configuration and automation requirements.

We are looking into using Ansible as well with our infrastructure. If Ruckus has no support for Ansible, we may consider alternative wireless devices for our environment and all our clients.

My advice is to petition for support thru your local System Engineer, who can file an FR for Product Marketing to evaluate.
