Scope of support for the Ansible Core package included in the RHEL 9 and RHEL 8.6 and later AppStream repositories
The Ansible Core package (ansible-core) is included in the RHEL 9 and RHEL 8.6 and later AppStream repositories to enable Red Hat provided automation content. The scope of support of the package will be limited to any Ansible playbooks/roles/modules that are included with or generated by a Red Hat product, such as RHEL System Roles, or remediation playbooks generated by Insights. Refer to Using Ansible in RHEL 9 and Using Ansible in RHEL 8.6 and later for more information on using Ansible Core for these supported use cases.
Additional support for the underlying platform and Core-maintained modules will require an Ansible Automation Platform subscription.

What are the actual modules in ansible-core vs ansible-engine? Perhaps you could do a table showing what is missing from core, for example, ansible.posix.authorized_key
Hi Simon. This is a list of modules included in Ansible Core 2.12: https://docs.ansible.com/ansible-core/2.12/collections/ansible/builtin/index.html This is a list of modules included in Ansible Engine 2.9: https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/2.9/modules/list_of_all_modules.html
I also wrote a blog that has a section on "What is the difference between Ansible Engine and Ansible Core?": Updates to using Ansible in RHEL 8.6 and 9.0
