    At its core, an Ansible collection is a collection (pun intended) of related modules and plugins that you can manage independently from Ansible’s core engine. For example, the Sensu Go Ansible collection contains Ansible content for managing all aspects of Sensu Go. It includes Ansible roles for installing Sensu Go components and modules for creating, updating, and deleting monitoring resources. Another example is the Sops Ansible collection that integrates Mozilla’s Secret Operations editor with Ansible.

    The Ansible collection’s documentation should contain at least a quickstart tutorial with installation instructions. This part of the documentation aims to have users up and running in a matter of minutes. For example, the Sensu Go Ansible collection has a dedicated quickstart guide, while the Sops Ansible collection includes this information in its README file.
