Ansible Playbook for Deploying ollama-webui & liteLLM-proxy to connect to Azure OpenAI

Repositories used: ollama-webui and liteLLM-proxy

This ansible playbook helps to automate the deployment of two containers, ollama-webui and liteLLM-proxy using Docker. It also enables integration with Azure Cognitive Services - Azure OpenAI.

Head on over to my repository to download the repo to your local computer or environment. SpaceTerran/ollama-webui_and_liteLLM-proxy.


To use this playbook, you are expected to have Ansible installed on your local/remote machine, as well as Docker.

Secrets File

This playbook requires a secret file containing your Azure API details. Create a YAML file named secrets.yml with the following structure:

AZURE_API_KEY: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
AZURE_API_VERSION: "2023-05-15"

Note: Please replace the placeholders with your actual Azure API details.

Ansible Playbook Details

The playbook covers different tasks including cloning the repository, checking for required directories and creating them if they don’t exist, and deploying the docker containers.

Variable Configuration

Make sure to customize the following vars as per your environment:

  • nfs_server: IP address of your NFS server.
  • nfs_path: Path to your NFS share.
  • container_name: Docker-compose stack name.
  • docker_compose_dir: Directory to store docker-compose files. Ensure this directory exists before running the playbook.
  • ansible_python_interpreter: Path to your Python interpreter.

Running the Ansible Playbook

You can run the playbook using the following command:

ansible-playbook playbook_name.yml --ask-vault-pass

Replace playbook_name.yml with the name of your playbook file.


The playbook runs tasks as root. While that might be acceptable in a demonstration or testing environment, it is a significant security risk in production. This playbook should, therefore, be used for demonstration purposes only.

Have a good look at the playbook and adjust according to your environment and requirements before running it.
