Gathering Facts issue for localhost

The issue can occur on Ansible Semaphore installed via Snap or Docker.
4:10:16 PM
TASK [Gathering Facts] *********************************************************
4:10:17 PM
fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => changed=false

Why this happens

For more information about localhost use in Ansible, read in article Implicit 'localhost'.
Ansible tries to gather facts locally, but Ansible is located in limited isolated container which doesn't allow this.

How to fix this

There are two ways:
  1. 1.
    Disable facts gathering:
- hosts: localhost
gather_facts: False
- ...
  1. 2.
    Explicitly set connection type to ssh:
[localhost] ansible_connection=ssh ansible_ssh_user=your_localhost_user

fatal: bad numeric config value '0' for 'GIT_TERMINAL_PROMPT': invalid unit

This means that you are trying to access a repository over HTTPS that requires authentication.

How to fix this

  • Go to Key Store screen.
  • Create a new key Login with password type.
  • Specify your login for GitHub/BitBucket/etc.
  • Specify the password. You can't use your account password for GitHub/BitBucket, you should use a Personal Access Token (PAT) instead of it. Read more here.
  • After creating the key, go to the Repositories screen, find your repository and specify the key.

unable to read LDAP response packet: unexpected EOF

How to fix this

Enable TLS in your config.json file:
"ldap_needtls": true

LDAP Result Code 49 "Invalid Credentials"

You have the wrong password or binddn.

How to fix this

Use ldapwhoami tool and check if your binddn works:
-H ldap://\
-D "CN=/your/ldap_binddn/value/in/config/file"\
It will ask interactively for the password and should return code 0 and echo out the DN as specified.
