Automation is an efficient way to perform repeatable tasks, especially those we can incorporate into a DevOps CI/CD pipeline. Many of our customers have deployed both Cisco ASA and Cisco ISE appliances in production, so we built a solution to allow for automated mapping between username and IP address.
Here at CDA we love automation because it is an efficient way to perform mundane or repeatable tasks. In a previous blog article, I talked about automating the process of changing passwords on Cisco ASA devices using the REST API. In this article, I will discuss deploying the Cisco ASA REST API using automation via Ansible.
If you’re looking to gain more time for innovation, managing repeatable tasks with automation is incredibly efficient. Automating security-related tasks provides even more value than just efficiencies. It gives you an auditable workflow, which is especially valuable if you are regulated and audited regularly.
