import_tasks – Import a task list¶
New in version 2.4.
The name of the imported file is specified directly without any other option.
Most keywords, including loops and conditionals, only applied to the imported tasks, not to this statement itself.
If you need any of those to apply, use include_tasks instead.
- This is a core feature of Ansible, rather than a module, and cannot be overridden like a module.
