Then a question came in to my mind. On our organization, there is a server dedicated for Ansible components. Ansible is really net tool to automate tasks such as rolling restarts, deletion, and provisioning, all in one playbook. I was thinking if there would be a way to trigger an ansible playbook rather than a single remediation script?
I think this would be possible IF there is an ansible installed on the monitored server. However, the Ansible components are stored on a separate component. I'm thinking that a workaround would be to trigger an auto-remediation script on monitored server, which then runs the playbook command. This method, however, will be more tedious as there are more points involved to trigger a single playbook.
Are there any out-of-the-box way / techniques / workarounds to execute a playbook from the policy Controller config?
I think you can try HTTP Request to use with a policy to run a Ansible Playbook.
You can know more on HTTP Request in this documentation link : https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/HTTP+Request+Actions+and+Templates
I have not tried this, but I will let other community members to post their thoughts.
