Trigger a process from Ansible

Example of an Ansible Playbook that triggers robot process on fail using Control Room API and Work Items.


This robot demonstrates an use case of an Ansible playbook that will fail and call a Robocorp process using Control Room API with a work item that containes the failure details. The type of message is selectable based on a property from the work item, so that the Ansible playbook can decide what type of message will be sent.

The playbook resides in the playbook.yaml file and can be executed with: ansible-playbook playbook.yaml

The simple robot that comes with the example only sends the details of a failure either to Slack or Email based on how the Playbook was configured.
