A new version of Ansible Tower has been released, including some useful features we’ve been looking forward to.
In particular the additions to Workflow look very nice:
- the Workflow Convergence step which allows you to wait on multiple jobs before continuing should simplify some complex logic you’ve had to embed in your workflows to achieve this previously
- Nested Workflows promises to allow finer-grained modularity and reusability in Workflows
- Workflow-level inventory, rather than depending on the job template inventory
- Workflow Always Job Templates, enables job execution of steps regardless of exit status of the workflow.
There is a more detailed write-up over on the Ansible Blog.
