ansible-core 2.13 "Nobody's Fault but Mine" Release Notes

v2.13.0

Release Summary

Release Date: 2022-05-16

Major Changes

  • Jinja2 Controller Requirement - Jinja2 3.0.0 or newer is required for the control node (the machine that runs Ansible) (#75881)
  • Templating - remove safe_eval in favor of using NativeEnvironment but utilizing literal_eval only in cases when safe_eval was used (#75587)

Minor Changes

  • Action Plugins - Add helper method for argument spec validation, and extend to pause and async_wrapper
  • Added AIX root CA certs folders - enhance the TLS support in uri task on AIX
  • Added module_utils.compat.typing to facilitate type-hinting on all supported Python versions.
  • Ansible.Basic - small changes to allow use in PowerShell modules running on non-Windows platforms (#76924).
  • AnsibleModule.run_command() now has a toggle to allow caller to decide to handle exceptions from executing the command itself
  • Attach concat function to an environment class (#76282)
  • Clarify in a comment that unrolling an iterator in Templar._finalize is actually necessary. Also switch to using the _unroll_iterator decorator directly to deduplicate code in Templar._finalize. (#76436)
  • Installation - modernize our python installation, to reduce dynamic code in setup.py, and migrate what is feasible to setup.cfg. This will enable shipping wheels in the future.
  • PlayIterator - introduce public methods to access PlayIterator._host_states (#74416)
  • PlayIterator - use enums for Iterating and Failed states (#74511)
  • Reduce number of iterations through PlayIterator (#74175)
  • Remove more Python 2.x compatibility code from controller (#77320).
  • Start of moving away from using Six, Python 2 and 3 compatibility library (#75863)
  • The collection loader now reports a Python warning if an attempt is made to install the Ansible collection loader a second time. Previously this condition was reported using an Ansible warning.
  • ansible-galaxy collection [install|verify] - allow user-provided signature sources in addition to those from the Galaxy server. Each collection entry in a requirements file can specify a signatures key followed by a list of sources. Collection name(s) provided on the CLI can specify additional signature sources by using the --signatures CLI option. Signature sources should be URIs that can be opened with urllib.request.urlopen(), such as "https://example.com/path/to/detached_signature.asc" or "file:///path/to/detached_signature.asc". The --keyring option must be specified if signature sources are provided.
  • ansible-galaxy collection [install|verify] - use gpg to verify the authenticity of the signed MANIFEST.json with ASCII armored detached signatures provided by the Galaxy server. The keyring (which is not managed by ansible-galaxy) must be provided with the --keyring option to use signature verification. If no --keyring is specified and the collection to install|verify has associated detached signatures on the Galaxy server, a warning is provided.
  • ansible-galaxy collection install - Add a global configuration to modify the required number of signatures that must verify the authenticity of the collection. By default, the number of required successful signatures is 1. Set this option to all to require all signatures verify the collection. To ensure signature verification fails if there are no valid signatures, prepend the value with '+', such as +all or +1.
  • ansible-galaxy collection install - Add a global ignore list for gpg signature errors. This can be used to ignore certain signatures when the number of required successful signatures is all. When the required number of successful signatures is a positive integer, the only effect this has is to display fewer errors to the user on failure (success is determined by having the minimum number of successful signatures, in which case all errors are disregarded).
  • ansible-galaxy collection install - Add a global toggle to turn off GPG signature verification.
  • ansible-galaxy collection install - Store Galaxy server metadata alongside installed collections for provenance. Signatures obtained from the Galaxy server can be used for offline verification with ansible-galaxy collection verify --offline.
  • ansible-console - Provide a way to customize the stdout callback
  • ansible-core modules - Remove unused Python shebangs from built-in modules.
  • ansible-doc metadata dump - add option --no-fail-on-errors which allows to not fail the ansible-doc invocation when errors happen during docs parsing or processing. Instead they are reported in the JSON result in an error key for the affected plugins (#77035).
  • ansible-galaxy - the option to skip certificate verification now also applies when cloning via SCM (git/hg) (#41077)
  • ansible-test - Accept new-style Python modules without a shebang.
  • ansible-test - Add --version support to show the ansible-core version.

  • ansible-test - Use the legacy collection loader for import sanity tests on target-only Python versions.
  • ansible-test - Virtual environments managed by ansible-test now use consistent versions of pip, setuptools and wheel.

  • junit callback - Fix traceback during automatic fact gathering when using relative paths.
  • junit callback - Fix unicode error when handling non-ASCII task paths.

  • ssh connection - properly quote controlpersist path given by user to avoid issues with spaces and other characters
  • ssh connection avoid parsing ssh cli debug lines as they can match expected output at high verbosities.
  • ssh connection now uses more correct host source as play_context can ignore loop/delegation variations.
  • sudo become plugin, fix handling of non interactive flags, previous substitution was too naive
