How to create a vault in Ansible

Hi Guys,

I have installed Ansible in the Linux system. I have one file which contains a username and password. I want to create a vault in ansible so that I can store a username and password safely. How can I do that?

Hi@akhtar,

Ansible has a command to encrypt any file named ansible-vault. So that nobody can see the data of that file. You can use the below-given command to do so.

$ ansible-vault encrypt var.yml
New Vault password:
Confirm New Vault password:
Encryption successful
[root@localhost mail]# cat var.yml
$ANSIBLE_VAULT;1.1;AES256
