Ansible - owner parameter

Updated:   |  Ansible articles

The owner parameter can be used to define the owner of a file or directory. For example, let's say you are using the copy module to copy a file. In this example, the copied file (foo.txt) would be owned by john.doe.

- name: "copy foo.txt to /tmp"
    src: "foo.txt"
    dest: "/tmp"
    owner: "john.doe"


Here are the attributes of the copied file (foo.txt).

-rw-r--r--. 3 john.doe root 4096 Jun 26 08:21 foo.txt
