How to configure Git in the slave node?

Hi,

You need to configure your Ansible inventory file in the /etc/ansible folder. After that, you can create an ansible playbook. To install any software with Ansible, we generally use the package module. You can go through the below document.

https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/collections/ansible/builtin/package_module.html

I am new in Ansible. Can you share the ansible playbook?

Hi,

If you have configured the inventory properly, then the below playbook you can use.

- name: Install Git
  package:
    name: {replace with the software name}
    state: present
Thanks it worked.

Hey, You are asked to install tools like git, selenium chrome driver, etc on the slave node and this has to be done using ansible which will configure the above tools on your slave machine.

You will need to write the code in ansible playbooks to do the installations.

Have a look at these: https://www.edureka.co/community/41267/install-git-using-ansible

Hope this helps!
