Ad-Hoc Commands

Ad-hoc commands are a great way to quickly issue a command against a host without running an entire playbook. They also don’t require knowing YAML.

Ad-Hoc Command Structure

ansible <group or hostname> -m <module name> -u username [--ask-pass] [--become] [--ask-become-pass]

For more options just type ansible --help and a full list of options will be available.
