Hi@akhtar,

Ansible registers module used to capture/store the output of a task/command.it is similar to variable declarations we can define the value in different scenarios like a conditional, logging, etc. for an example we echo uptime and hostname using the following syntax.

register: uptime

Here uptime is the value of the register variable, we can define any suitable value. At the last, we use the debug module with variable name. I have attached one example below for your reference.

- hosts: all
  tasks:
  - name: System Uptime
    command: uptime
    register: uptime
  - debug: var=uptime
