I need to reject "*" from stdout lines.

    "stdout_lines": [

   - set_fact:
     nfs_clients:  "{{ nfs_clients_out.stdout_lines | reject('search','*') | list }}"

TASK [set_fact] ***************************************************************************************************** An exception occurred during task execution. To see the full traceback, use -vvv. The error was: error: nothing to repeat fatal: [rchinnn03]: FAILED! => {"msg": "Unexpected failure during module execution.", "stdout": ""}


Please use as below:

- set_fact:
     nfs_clients: "{{ nfs_clients_out.stdout_lines | reject('match','rchinnn*') | list }}"

Please check jinja2 version details

  • I used provided syntax, but it's taking only "" from stdout_lines. But my requirement is vice-versa, I need everything to be assigned to a variable except "" . I tried by replacing rchinnn* with "*", but it's taking * as wildcard and it's rejecting everything. – Pandu Feb 12 at 17:29
