Hi@akhtar,

You can use a module named Cron in your Ansible Playbook. It can schedule your job according to your requirement as shown below.

- name: Cron Job
  hosts: webservers
  become: true
  tasks:
    - name: Crontab file exists
      cron:
        name: Add date and time to a file.
        minute: "*/2"
        hour: 9-16
        weekday: 1-5
        user: devops
        job: df >> /home/devops/disk_usage
        cron_file: disk_usage
        state: present
