ANSIBLE-GALAXY

NAME

ansible-galaxy - Perform various Role and Collection related operations.

SYNOPSIS

usage: ansible-galaxy [-h] [--version] [-v] TYPE ...

DESCRIPTION

Command to manage Ansible roles and collections.

None of the CLI tools are designed to run concurrently with themselves. Use an external scheduler and/or locking to ensure there are no clashing operations.

COMMON OPTIONS

--version

show program's version number, config file location, configured module search path, module location, executable location and exit

-h, --help

show this help message and exit

-v, --verbose

Causes Ansible to print more debug messages. Adding multiple -v will increase the verbosity, the builtin plugins currently evaluate up to -vvvvvv. A reasonable level to start is -vvv, connection debugging might require -vvvv.
