Configuration Management Tool

WARNING: The plugin filter file/etc/ansible/plugin_filters(yml) does not exist – Skipping

Ansible is an open-source software provisioning, configuration management, and application-deployment tool. It runs on many Unix-like systems, and can configure both Unix-like systems as well as Microsoft Windows. It includes its own declarative language to describe system configuration.

This error is as a result of the "plugin_filters.yml" not present in the ansible directory as shown below.

Note: Plugin Filter Configuration
– Since Ansible 2.5, there is the ability for a site administrator to blacklist modules that they do not want to be available to Ansible. This is configured via a YAML configuration file (by default, /etc/ansible/plugin_filters.yml). Use plugin_filters_cfg configuration in the defaults section to change this configuration file path.

Solution: Ensure this file is present as shown below. For more information, see the following link below https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/user_guide/plugin_filtering_config.html

Henceforth, the error will no longer be prompted 😉
