I finally found some tome to improve my cloudflared ansible role, to be abel to use named tunnels

Already back in October 2020 Cloudflare announced Argo Tunnels that live forever. They changed the architecture of the tunnels, essentially creating named tunnels which outlive connections and improving the stability.

Argo Tunnel’s architecture distinguishes between the persistent objects (DNS records, cloudflared) from the ephemeral objects (the connections). To do that, this release introduces the concept of a permanent name that you assign to a Tunnel.

I filed and issue a while back, concerning a stability issue I faced. Since I switched to named tunnels, the issue is gone.

So I am happy that my role papanito.cloudflared in version 3.0.0 now allows you to configure named tunnels. For details please check
