Hi Guys,

I have created one Ansible Playbook. This playbook contains three tasks. I want to give the task name so that I can see at the time of running the playbook. How can I do that?

Hi@akhtar,

You can give the task name in your Ansible Playbook. Inside the task module, you will find one argument called name. This is used to give the task name. When you run your playbook you can able to see task name. I have attached one example for your reference below.

- hosts: all
  vars:
    - pname: "httpd"
  tasks:
  - name: Install httpd module
    package:
      name: "{{ pname }}"
      state: present
    register: x
  - debug:
      var: x.failed
