Automation Gateway aggregates all of your Ansible modules, roles, and playbooks. Along with this attribute is the ability to decorate or enhance each module, role, and playbook. With decoration, users have the flexibility to edit JSON schemas for identifying and modifying metadata such as input parameters, descriptions, or types. Decoration is currently stored in the database.
