NAME

       ansible-pull - pulls playbooks from a VCS repo and executes them for the local host

SYNOPSIS

       ansible-pull -U <repository> [options] [<playbook.yml>]

DESCRIPTION

       is  used to up a remote copy of ansible on each managed node, each set to run via cron and
       update  playbook  source  via  a  source  repository.   This  inverts  the  default   push
       architecture  of  ansible  into  a  pull  architecture,  which  has near-limitless scaling
       potential.

       The setup playbook can be tuned to change  the  cron  frequency,  logging  locations,  and
       parameters to ansible-pull.  This is useful both for extreme scale-out as well as periodic
       remediation.  Usage of the 'fetch' module to retrieve logs from ansible-pull runs would be
       an excellent way to gather and analyze remote logs from ansible-pull.

COMMON OPTIONS

       --accept-host-key
          adds the hostkey for the repo url if not already added

       --ask-su-pass
          ask for su password (deprecated, use become)

       --ask-sudo-pass
          ask for sudo password (deprecated, use become)

       --ask-vault-pass
          ask for vault password

       --check
          don't make any changes; instead, try to predict some of the changes that may occur

       --clean
          modified files in the working repository will be discarded

       --full
          Do a full clone, instead of a shallow one.

       --list-hosts
          outputs a list of matching hosts; does not execute anything else

       --private-key, --key-file
          use this file to authenticate the connection

       --purge
          purge checkout after playbook run

       --scp-extra-args 'SCP_EXTRA_ARGS'
          specify extra arguments to pass to scp only (e.g. -l)

       --sftp-extra-args 'SFTP_EXTRA_ARGS'
          specify extra arguments to pass to sftp only (e.g. -f, -l)

          only run the playbook if the repository has been updated

       -s 'SLEEP', --sleep 'SLEEP'
          sleep  for random interval (between 0 and n number of seconds) before starting. This is
          a useful way to disperse git requests

          connect as this user (default=None)
