I haven't seen this before but did a little googling.  What version is your ansible installation?   If it's a little bit older, (https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues/5412) might be what you're seeing.

It's a bit of a long read, but it looks like reinstalling or updating your ansible (or installing a new one in a fresh virtualenv for isolation) should resolve it.

Let me know if that doesn't fix it up for you.

Hi, all,


Sorry to bother you again. I am trying to install tools using the script. I have downloaded the playbook, but stuck here:


[galaxy@Pegasus ansible-galaxy-tools]$ ansible-playbook tasks/tools.yml -i "localhost," --extra-vars galaxy_tools_api_key=xcd2Glx

ERROR: pip is not a legal parameter of an Ansible Play


I did not find anything related on the Galaxy search either. Any help will be appreciated.


The web Admin interface only allows tool installation one by one. I wish it allows batch installation there.
