Hi Guys,

I have one Ansible-Playbook. But in this playbook, I have to use a username and password. For security reasons, I want to import a password from another file. How can I do that in Ansible?

Hi@akhtar,

You can use vars_files keyword in Ansible. This is used to import multiple files in Ansible Playbook as shown below.

- hosts: localhost
  vars_files:
          - var.yml

Now you can use the data of this file in your playbook.
