'Using tests as filters is deprecated' Warning When Running A Playbook In Ansible.

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • When executing an old playbook with the latest Ansible, we received this warning:
[DEPRECATION WARNING]: Using tests as filters is deprecated. Instead of using `result|search` use `result is search`. This feature will be removed in version 2.9. Deprecation warnings can be disabled by setting deprecation_warnings=False in ansible.cfg.


  • Ansible Engine 2.5 and above
