ansible.builtin.memory cache – RAM backed, non persistent


This cache plugin is part of ansible-core and included in all Ansible installations. In most cases, you can use the short plugin name memory even without specifying the collections: keyword. However, we recommend you use the FQCN for easy linking to the plugin documentation and to avoid conflicting with other collections that may have the same cache plugin name.


  • RAM backed cache that is not persistent.

  • This is the default used if no other plugin is specified.

  • There are no options to configure.

Configuration entries for each entry type have a low to high priority order. For example, a variable that is lower in the list will override a variable that is higher up.
