How to take user input in Ansible

Hi Guys,

I have one ansible-playbook in my controller node. I want to enable user input in this playbook. So that I can pass input at the run time. How can I do that?

Hi@akhtar,

To ask for user input, we will use the vars_prompt section in our playbook. You can follow the below playbook for better understanding.

- hosts: server
  gather_facts: no
  vars_prompt:
    - name: "Install"
      prompt: "Which software you want to install"
  tasks:
  - name: Install httpd module
    package:
      name: "{{ Install }}"
      state: present
