Sensu Ansible Handler

Overview

A Sensu Go Handler for launching Ansible Tower Job Templates for automated
remediation.

Job Template Requests

Checks making use of this handler may specify an optional set of Ansible Tower job template requests to run for matching Sensu event occurrence and severity conditions using a check annotation io.sensu.ansible.config.actions. The value of the annotation is a json array of requests. Each request can include:

  • template_id : the job template id.
  • template_name : the name of the job template, used if template_id is not specified
  • inventory_id : the inventory id.
  • inventory_name : the name of the inventory, used if inventory_id is not specified
  • limit : inventory limit
  • occurrences: array of event occurrence values to match
  • severities: array of event severity values to match

All request attributes are optional, and under specified requests will take missing values from the associated handler commandline or envvar arguments. Please review the handler usage information and look below for a check configuration example.

Enterprise Plugin

The Sensu Go Ansible Handler is an Enterprise plugin that requires a valid Sensu license to run.
Sensu Go >= 5.21 will add the SENSU_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to the handler execution.
To run the plugin independently of Sensu (ex. test/dev), you must set the env var:

SENSU_LICENSE_FILE=$(sensuctl license info --format json)

Usage example(s)

$ sensuctl asset add sensu/sensu-ansible-handler
$ sensuctl handler create ansible --type pipe \
  --runtime-assets sensu/sensu-ansible-handler \
  --command "sensu-ansible-handler --host 127.0.0.1 --output-log-file=/var/log/sensu/sensu-backend/sensu-ansible-handler.log" \
  --timeout 10 --env-vars "ANSIBLE_TOKEN=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

NOTE: please take care to modify the --host and --output-log-file
configuration flags and the ANSIBLE_TOKEN environment variable, as needed.

For more information, please consult the --help output:

Ansible configuration

Sensu will require a valid auth token to communicate with the Ansible Tower API.
Please note the following instructions on how to generate/obtain a valid Ansible
Tower authorization token.

  1. Register Sensu as an Application in Ansible Tower.

    $ ANSIBLE_AUTH=$(curl -XPOST -sku ${ANSIBLE_USER}:${ANSIBLE_PASS} -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      -d '{"organization": 1, "client_type": "confidential", "name": "Sensu Go", "authorization_grant_type": "implicit", "redirect_uris": "https://'${ANSIBLE_HOST}'/api/"}' \
      https://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/v2/applications/)
    
  2. Get an OAuth Token.

    $ ANSIBLE_CLIENT_ID=$(echo $ANSIBLE_AUTH | jq -r .client_id)
    $ ANSIBLE_CLIENT_SECRET=$(echo $ANSIBLE_AUTH | jq -r .client_secret)
    $ open "http://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/o/authorize/?response_type=token&scope=read%20write&client_id=${ANSIBLE_CLIENT_ID}"

Development & Troubleshooting

  • Get a list of organizations by ID:

    $ curl -XGET -sku ${ANSIBLE_USER}:${ANSIBLE_PASS} -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      "https://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/v2/organizations/"
    
  • Get a list of inventories:

    $ curl -XGET -sku ${ANSIBLE_USER}:${ANSIBLE_PASS} -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      "https://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/v2/inventories/"
    
  • Get a list of job_templates:

    $ curl -XGET -sku ${ANSIBLE_USER}:${ANSIBLE_PASS} -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      "https://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/v2/job_templates/"
    
  • Test an API Token:

    $ curl -XGET --insecure -I -H "Authorization: Bearer ${ANSIBLE_TOKEN}" \
      -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      "https://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/v2/job_templates/"
    
  • Create an inventory:

    $ curl -XPOST -H "Authorization: Bearer ${ANSIBLE_TOKEN}" -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      -d '{"name": "Sensu Go", "organization": 1}' \
      "https://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/v2/inventories/"
    
  • Create a host:

    $ curl -XPOST -H "Authorization: Bearer ${ANSIBLE_TOKEN}" -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      -d '{"name": "server-01", "enabled": true, "instance_id": "", "variables": "{\"ansible_host\": \"10.0.1.101\"}"}' \
      "https://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/v2/inventories/2/hosts/"
    
  • Launch a job template:

    $ curl -XPOST -H "Authorization: Bearer ${ANSIBLE_TOKEN}" -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      -d '{"inventory": 2, "limit": "server-01"}' "https://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/v2/job_templates/7/launch/"
    
  • Delete an application:

    $ curl -XDELETE -sku ${ANSIBLE_USER}:${ANSIBLE_PASS} -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      "https://${ANSIBLE_HOST}/api/v2/applications/1/"
    

Roadmap

  • TODO: look at Sensu => Ansible registration handler for maintaining
    "Smart Inventories"
  • TODO: validate job template launch readiness via the GET /api/v2/job_templates/{id}/launch/ endpoint
