You can reference a firewall policy in the AS3 declaration. The last exercise in the current workshop covers deploying AS3 via Ansible. Please let us know if you are looking for information on any specific use-case. We will also be updating our workshop with more exercises.

F5 has just released Declarative Onboarding to make this so much simple. This can be used to automate bootstrapping using a single Ansible task. The methodology is similar to deploying AS3 using Ansible.
