We're looking for help writing an Ansible playbook that:
Assumes a new and empty Ubuntu 22.04 server
Installs Docker, Docker Compose, and enables Swarm mode
Installs Fluentd as a docker-compose stack
Installs and configures a firewall (iptables/nftables)
Firewalling allows access from restricted list of source IP addresses to fluentd ports
Firewalling allows access from restricted list of source IP addresses to port 22 (SSH)
Requirements of the playbook:
It will live in a standalone private GitHub repository
All environment-specific variables should be provided through an inventory file. No real hostnames, IPs, usernames, etc should be present in the repository
The repo contains clear documentation in the README.md file, explaining how to use the playbook and explaining the variables that can be set in the inventory file
The repo contains a documented example (ficticious) inventory file (.dist) as an example / template
The repo passes ansible-lint and ansible-review. Exceptions should be documented in the README.md file
