  • i got this working by removing delegate_to: localhost under the task and only keep connection: local at the global level.

  • I played around as I got interested in using ansible f5 facts and it worked for me with:

     

    - name: Collect BIG-IP facts
    bigip_device_info:
    provider: "{{ provider }}"
    gather_subset:
    - system-info
    register: device_result

    - name: Display the results
    debug:
    var: device_result.ansible_facts.ansible_net_system_info.product_version
