Configuring the Ansible Tower cloud connector
You configure the cloud connector to establish a connection between BMC Helix Intelligent Automation and Ansible Tower.
You can connect to Ansible Tower by using the cloud connector only if your BMC Helix Intelligent Automation is deployed as an on-premises BMC Helix IT Operations Management deployment. If your automation tool is not publicly accessible, you must download and install a plugin in your local environment to grant access to BMC Helix Intelligent Automation. For more information, see Configuring the Ansible Tower connector.
To configure the Ansible Tower connector
- In the BMC Helix Intelligent Automation console, go to Connectors > Available Connectors.
- Click Configure against the Ansible Tower connector.
- Enter a unique name.
- Enter the endpoint URL for the Ansible Tower application.
- Enter the username and password required to access the Ansible Tower application.
- Click Save.
The connector is saved and appears under the Configured Connectors tab with the status as Connected.
If the connector is not successfully connected, the status appears as Disconnected.
Where to go from here
Now that the connector is configured successfully, you can create policies to execute actions supported by Ansible Tower. For more information, see Launching a job template.
