Why is the Ansible Tower API Ignoring the extra_vars I Defined when I run my Job Template?

Solution Verified - Updated -


In Ansible Tower executing job template over REST API ignores extra_vars and shows them in ignored_fields like following:

  "ignored_fields": {
    "extra_vars": {
      "var": "foobar"
