Our Tools

The DevOps division have created tools to speed up workflow for day-to-day tasks and other operations having wider scope.

The canonical source of these tools is on gitlab > Information Services > DevOps > Tools

Ansible Role Fetcher

When an ansible playbook relies on shared ansible roles held elsewhere the ARF can be used to set up your Ansible environment to automatically refer to a local copy of this(-ese) role(s)

See the Ansible Role Fetcher project on the Developers' Hub for instructions on use.

Google Cloud SQL Backup

We host many of our databases in Google's Cloud SQL product. We have written a tool to scan all of our Google Cloud Projects and back any Cloud SQL databases found to a Google Cloud Storage bucket in a central backup project.

See the tool's Developer Hub page for more information.
