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. However, we recommend you use the Fully Qualified Collection Name (FQCN) ansible.builtin.memory 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.
