In this post, I will share with you how to create a storage account on Microsoft Azure cloud using Ansible.
This post follows the previous article on creating a dynamic inventory for Microsoft Azure with Ansible, which is not needed to complete this post.
Once your Ansible machine is configured to use Azure, you can create, manage and delete almost any service on Azure.
In the playbook below, I will create a storage account inside a resource group. In the configuration, I am using localhost as the host with the azure_rm module and note that I am also specifying the resource group I would like to use.
- name: Create a storage account on Microsoft Azure hosts: localhost connection: local gather_facts: yes tasks: - name: Create storage account azure_rm_storageaccount: resource_group: ubuntu-resources name: testaccountnt001 account_type: Standard_LRS
To run the playbook, I will use the following command.
