During testing for new Ansible code or roles, you need to frequently and repeatedly run
ansible-playbook. When you use sudo to execute the code, you must enter your password.
Manually entering your password each time you run your code quickly becomes tiresome, and slows you down! There are multiple ways to avoid re-entering your password.
Here’s a quick and non-intrusive way to do it for a single host:
- Edit your Ansible inventory file.
- Find your host in the inventory file.
Here’s an example, showing the full inventory line for the host:
weather.kvwn.com ansible_user=brick ansible_become_user=root ansible_become=true ansible_become_password=incorrect
