ansible.builtin.jsonfile – JSON formatted files.

Note

This module is part of ansible-core and included in all Ansible installations. In most cases, you can use the short module name jsonfile even without specifying the collections: keyword. However, 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.

New in version 1.9: of ansible.builtin
