Create a Playbook
Playbooks are the basis of configuration management, and orchestrated automation with
Ansible, and are designed for automating repeatable tasks.
Playbooks are expressed in YAML and have a minimum amount of syntax. YAML is a model of a configuration or a process. Because playbooks define a process and/or configuration, they are kept in source control.
Each playbook is composed of one or more plays. A play starts by defining the
hosts line. The
hosts line is a list of one or more groups or host patterns separated by colons.
