Itential Automation Gateway allows users to automate the administration of their network by providing a collection of Ansible roles that perform device monitoring and configuration tasks on supported device types. The roles are designed to utilize advanced features of the command and configuration networking modules that are developed, tested, and maintained by the Ansible open-source community. Devices are managed by running CLI and NETCONF commands over the SSH protocol. The parameters required for device connectivity are made available through the Automation Gateway inventory management subsystem.

The following roles are distributed with Automation Gateway.
