ansible.builtin.default – default Ansible screen output

Note

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