Hi,

yes, since today and if you are working with collections you should be able to use API keys:

Hi Aathi,

 

Version 1.0.5 of the Ansible collection supports API keys.

It is worth mentioning that there are many tools in the market to store keys or user credentials safely, instead of keeping them in the Ansible config files.

 

Thanks,

Omer
