Statements in Ansible

Hello Everyone

Welcome to CloudAffaire and this is Debjeet.

In the last blog post, we have discussed operators in Ansible.

In this blog post, we will discuss statements in Ansible.

What is a statement?

In computer programming, a statement is a syntactic unit of an imperative programming language that expresses some action to be carried out. A statement can be used as conditional or iterative. As already referenced in the variables section, Ansible uses Jinja2 templating to enable dynamic expressions and access to variables. Ansible supports all the statements provided by Jinja2 like if else, for etc.

Next, we are going to explain each statement with a demo.

Conditional Statements: A conditional statement defines a condition for execution. Ansible supports conditional statements like when, if, if else, if elif else etc.

Iterative Statements: An iterative statement is used to iterate through a list of items. Ansible supports different iterative statements like loop, with_X, for etc.

Hope you have enjoyed this article. In the next blog post, we will discuss functions in Ansible.
