ansible.builtin.debug strategy – Executes tasks in interactive debug session.


This strategy plugin is part of ansible-core and included in all Ansible installations. In most cases, you can use the short plugin name debug. However, we recommend you use the Fully Qualified Collection Name (FQCN) ansible.builtin.debug for easy linking to the plugin documentation and to avoid conflicting with other collections that may have the same strategy plugin name.


  • Task execution is ‘linear’ but controlled by an interactive debug session.

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.
