host_group_vars – In charge of loading group_vars and host_vars¶
New in version 2.4.
- Loads YAML vars into corresponding groups/hosts in group_vars/ and host_vars/ directories.
- Files are restricted by extension to one of .yaml, .json, .yml or no extension.
- Hidden (starting with ‘.’) and backup (ending with ‘~’) files and directories are ignored.
- Only applies to inventory sources that are existing paths.
[".yml", ".yaml", ".json"]
Check all of these extensions when looking for 'variable' files which should be YAML or JSON or vaulted versions of these.
This affects vars_files, include_vars, inventory and vars plugins among others.
