Functionality - Actions

Plugin Actions

Use plugin actions in a Playbook to automate operations on external systems.


Unlike built-in actions, plugin actions are not fixed to the PPA task environment.

They are used the same way in the Playbook, but target specific devices & applications.

Some examples of plugins published by Osirium:

  • ServiceNow
  • AWS EC2
  • Active Directory
  • Cisco IOS
  • Hashicorp Vault
  • PPA Appliance Automation
  • SSH Automation
  • JSON API Automation

Managing Plugins

Your PPA Appliance (version 2.5.0 or later) will have some plugins already installed.

You can see your current list of plugins on the Plugins page.

Any plugin visible in the Plugins page can be used right away in a Playbook.

Plugin Updates

New & updated plugins are released frequently by Osirium.

They can be uploaded to the PPA Appliance with no downtime at all.

Creating Plugins

PPA 2.6.0 will introduce new plugin creation features.

You'll be able to write your own plugin, then upload & build it inside the PPA appliance.
