Hi Guys,

I want to make a file executable using the Ansible playbook. Whenever the task runs it will make the file executable. How can I do that?

Hi@akhtar,

You can use the file module in Ansible. This module has an argument named mode. There you can pass your requirement. You can also take help from the below-given code.

- name: Changing perm of "/etc/rc.d/rc.local", adding "+x"
  file:
    dest: /etc/rc.d/rc.local
    mode: a+x
