Implementing Configuration Management in CloudShell

This article explains the end-to-end flow for implementing configuration management in CloudShell Apps. For detailed information and implementation examples, see the CloudShell Dev Guide's Configuration Management chapter.

To implement configuration management:

  1. For Ansible configuration management, make sure you have a compatible execution server running on a Linux computer - see Configure Execution Server for Ansible.
  2. Develop the configuration management script or playbook - see Adding App templates.
  3. Make sure it's compatible with CloudShell App deployment by running an App with the custom script or playbook, and fixing any issues that arise.

    Note: To run configuration management on a Windows VM, the VM must have WinRM enabled. For details, see Configuration Management Support in CloudShell.
