Getting collection updates from Ansible 9 with older releases of ansible-core

Ansible 9 includes ansible-core 2.16. Depending on your needs, you can get collection updates as they ship in the Ansible “batteries included” package while continuing to use older versions of ansible-core.

An ansible-galaxy requirements file based on the collections from Ansible 9 has been made available for this use case:

After you download the requirements file, the collections can be installed by running this command:

ansible-galaxy collection install -r galaxy-requirements.yaml

On behalf of the Ansible community, thank you and happy automating!
