This rule checks that playbooks use actions from the ansible.builtin collection only.

This is an opt-in rule. You must enable it in your Ansible-lint configuration as follows:

  - only-builtins

Problematic Code

- name: Example playbook
  hosts: all
    - name: Deploy a Helm chart for Prometheus
      kubernetes.core.helm: # <- Uses a non-builtin collection.
        name: test
        chart_ref: stable/prometheus
        release_namespace: monitoring
        create_namespace: true

Correct Code

- name: Example playbook
  hosts: localhost
    - name: Run a shell command echo This playbook uses actions from the builtin collection only.
