Overview

Ansible is used to automate much of the portal infrastructure management. The full list of supported actions, playbooks, and initial setup can be found in ansible-playbooks repo README.
Ansible is run locally, or on a dedicated deploy machine. Ansible runs in a docker container and targets the server that you are setting a portal up on.
Since ansible runs in a docker container, you will need docker installed on your local or deploy machine.
The ansible-playbook repo is where all the commands live with explanations in the README. The README has setup instructions, please read them carefully.
The README will point you to a second ansible repo, ansible-private, which you will also need. This ansible-private repo also has a README with setup instructions for you to follow.
