Ansible playbooks that use the IOS / NXOS Facts modules and Genie parsed commands to transform RAW JSON into business-ready documentation

Here you can easily start capturing Ansible Facts for IOS and NXOS and transform the JSON into CSV and Markdown !

Also included are a bunch of valuable Genie parsed show commands which transform the response into JSON then again transforms the JSON into CSV and Markdown!

The playbooks use Prompts so you should be able to clone the repo and update the hosts file and start targeting your hosts! For full enterprise support I suggest you refactor the group_vars and remove the prompts moving to full Ansible Vault – but for portability and ease of start-up I’ve made them prompted playbooks for now.

I would love to hear how they work out for you – please comment below if you have success!
