ansible.posix.json callback – Ansible screen output as JSON

Note

This callback plugin is part of the ansible.posix collection (version 1.4.0).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install ansible.posix. You need further requirements to be able to use this callback plugin, see Requirements for details.

To use it in a playbook, specify: ansible.posix.json.

Synopsis

  • This callback converts all events into JSON output to stdout

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the local controller node that executes this callback.

  • Set as stdout in config

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

show_custom_stats

boolean

This adds the custom stats set via the set_stats plugin to the play recap

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

Configuration:

  • INI entry:

    [defaults]
    show_custom_stats = false
    
  • Environment variable: ANSIBLE_SHOW_CUSTOM_STATS

Notes

Note

  • When using a strategy such as free, host_pinned, or a custom strategy, host results will be added to new task results in ``.plays[].tasks[]``. As such, there will exist duplicate task objects indicated by duplicate task IDs at ``.plays[].tasks[].task.id``, each with an individual host result for the task.

Hint

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.
