Hi@akhtar,

In Ansible, the role is the primary mechanism for breaking a playbook into multiple files. This simplifies writing complex playbooks, and it makes them easier to reuse. The breaking of the playbook allows you to logically break the playbook into reusable components. You can use the below command to download a role.

$ ansible-galaxy role install geerlingguy.apache
- downloading role 'apache', owned by geerlingguy
- downloading role from https://github.com/geerlingguy/ansible-role-apache/archive/3.1.0.tar.gz
- extracting geerlingguy.apache to /etc/myroles/geerlingguy.apache
- geerlingguy.apache (3.1.0) was installed successfully
