Ansible Pfsense: Ansible Modules for Managing PfSense Firewalls

ansible-pfsense / pfsensible.core

This is a set of modules to allow you to configure pfSense firewalls with ansible.

Installation using ansible galaxy

Ansible Galaxy (as of version 2.9) now has an option for collections. A collection is a distribution format for delivering all type of Ansible content (not just roles as it was before). We have renamed the collection 'pfsensible.core' for galaxy distribution. To install:

ansible-galaxy collection install pfsensible.core

Optionally, you can specify the path of the collection installation with the -p option.

ansible-galaxy collection install pfsensible.core -p ./collections

Additionally, you can set the collections_paths option in your ansible.cfg file to automatically designate install locations.

# ansible.cfg
[defaults]
collections_paths=collections

NOTE: Changes with pfsensible.core 0.4.0

With pfsensible.core 0.4.0 we have stopped stripping the pfsense_ prefix from the module names. This caused conflicts with other modules (like the ansible core 'setup' module). You can use the 'collections' keyword in your playbooks and roles to simplify the module names instead.

Installing using ansible pre-2.9 (not galaxy)

Just checkout the repository and run your playbooks from the ansible-pfsense directory.

Configuration

Python discovery in ansible 2.9 and 2.10 will only detect Python up to version 3.7, ansible 2.11 will detect 3.8. If Python discovery fails, you can set ansible_python_interpreter in your playbook or hosts vars:

pfSense >= 2.5.2:

ansible_python_interpreter: /usr/local/bin/python3.8

pfSense >= 2.4.5, < 2.5.2:

ansible_python_interpreter: /usr/local/bin/python3.7

pfSense < 2.4.5:

ansible_python_interpreter: /usr/local/bin/python2.7

Modules must run as root in order to make changes to the system. By default pfSense does not have sudo capability so become will not work. You can install it with:

  - name: "Install packages"
    package:
      name:
        - pfSense-pkg-sudo
      state: present

and then configure sudo so that your user has permission to use sudo.

Modules

The following modules are currently available:

Bulk modules

These modules allow you to make important changes at once and, using the purge parameters, to keep the targets configuration strictly synchronized with your playbooks:

Third party modules

These modules allow you to manage installed packages:

Operation

Modules in the collection work by editing /cf/conf/config.xml using xml.etree.ElementTree, then calling the appropriate PHP update function via the pfSense PHP developer shell.

Some formatting is lost, and CDATA items are converted to normal entries, but so far no problems with that have been noted.

  • Ansible Tower - Ansible Tower by Red Hat helps you scale IT automation, manage complex deployments and speed productivity. Extend the power of Ansible to your entire team.
  • AWX - AWX provides a web-based user interface, REST API, and task engine built on top of Ansible. It is the upstream project for Tower, a commercial derivative of AWX.
  • Ansible Lint - Checks Playbooks for best practices and behavior that could potentially be improved.
  • Ansible Later - Another best practice scanner. Checks Playbooks and Roles for best practices and behavior that could potentially be improved.
  • Ansible Doctor - Simple annotation like documentation generator for Ansible roles based on Jinja2 templates.
  • Ansible cmdb - Takes the output of Ansible's fact gathering and converts it into a static HTML page.
  • ARA - ARA Records Ansible playbooks and makes them easier to understand and troubleshoot with a reporting API, UI and CLI.
  • Mitogen for Ansible - Speed up Ansible substantially with Mitogen.
  • Molecule - Molecule aids in the development and testing of Ansible roles.
  • Packer Ansible Provisioner - This Provisioner can be used to automate VM Image creation via Packer with Ansible.

  • ansible-builder - Using Ansible content that depends on non-default dependencies can be tricky. Packages must be installed on each node, play nicely with other software installed on the host system, and be kept in sync.
  • kics - SAST Tool that scans your ansible infrastructure as code playbooks for security vulnverables, compliance issues and misconfigurations.
  • php-ansible Library - OOP-Wrapper for Ansible, making Ansible available in PHP.
  • TD4A - Design aid for building and testing jinja2 templates, combines data in yaml format with a jinja2 template and render the output.
  • Ansible Playbook Grapher - Command line tool to create a graph representing your Ansible playbook plays, tasks and roles.
