       ansible-inventory - None


       ansible-inventory [options] [host|group]


       used to display or dump the configured inventory as Ansible sees it


          ask for vault password

          When  doing  an  --list,  represent  in  a  way  that is optimized for export,not as an
          accurate representation of how Ansible has processed it

          create inventory graph, if supplying pattern it must be a valid group name

       --host 'HOST'
          Output specific host info, works as inventory script

          Output all hosts info, works as inventory script

       --output 'OUTPUT_FILE'
          When doing an --list, send the inventory to a file instead of of to screen

       --playbook-dir 'BASEDIR'
          Since  this  tool  does  not  use  playbooks,  use  this  as  a   substitute   playbook
          directory.This  sets  the  relative path for many features including roles/ group_vars/

          Use TOML format instead of default JSON, ignored for --graph

          Add vars to graph display, ignored unless used with --graph

          the vault identity to use

          vault password file

          show program's version number, config file location,  configured  module  search  path,
          module location, executable location and exit

       -h, --help
          show this help message and exit

       -i, --inventory, --inventory-file
          specify  inventory  host  path  or  comma  separated  host  list.  --inventory-file  is

       -v, --verbose
          verbose mode (-vvv for more, -vvvv to enable connection debugging)

       -y, --yaml
          Use YAML format instead of default JSON, ignored for --graph


       The following environment variables may be specified.

       ANSIBLE_CONFIG -- Specify override location for the ansible config file

       Many more are available for most options in ansible.cfg

       For a full list check or use the ansible-config command.


       /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg -- Config file, used if present

       ~/.ansible.cfg -- User config file, overrides the default config if present

       ./ansible.cfg -- Local config file (in current working directory) assumed to  be  'project
       specific' and overrides the rest if present.

       As mentioned above, the ANSIBLE_CONFIG environment variable will override all others.
