ansible.builtin.rpm_key module – Adds or removes a gpg key from the rpm db

Note

This module is part of ansible-core and included in all Ansible installations. In most cases, you can use the short module name rpm_key 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 1.3: of ansible.builtin
