Plugins that come with the IBM z/OS core collection augment Ansible’s core functionality. Ansible uses a plugin architecture to enable a rich, flexible and expandable feature set.
zos_ssh: Enables the Ansible controller to communicate with a z/OS target machine by using SSH, with the added support to transfer ASCII as EBCDIC when transferring REXX modules. This connection plugin was forked from the Ansible ssh.py connection plugin.
For further reference, see the zos_ssh quickstart guide.
