Ansible, allowing you to efficiently run and test Ansible-related
tasks and scenarios within your pytest test suite. This plugin enhances the

pytest. It allows you to validate the behavior of your Ansible
rolesin isolation, ensuring that each component functions as expected.
Molecule Scenario Integration: The plugin assists in running Molecule
pytest. This integration streamlines the testing of Ansible roles and playbooks across different environments, making it easier to identify and fix issues across diverse setups.
Ansible Integration for Pytest Tests: With this functionality, you can seamlessly use
Ansiblefrom within your
pytesttests. This opens up possibilities to interact with Ansible components and perform tasks like provisioning resources, testing configurations, and more, all while leveraging the power and flexibility of pytest.
