The error you’re seeing is because that role has dependencies which can’t be resolved.

The deps are here:

The roles are mostly designed to be re-usable without the integrated repository, but to do so you’ll need to inspect the role tests to see what it needs to work:

Role requirements, to resolve the meta deps:

An example inventory, playbook, etc is all here:

Subject: [openstack-dev] [openstack-ansible][openstack-ansible-plugins] error in rabbitmq installation , config template plugin

Hi All
I am relatively new to Ansible, trying to run a playbook installing rabbit server https://github.com/openstack/openstack-ansible-rabbitmq_server (all stable/newton)

- name: Install RabbitMQ server
  hosts: rabbitmq_all
  user: root
    - { role: "rabbitmq_server", tags: [ "rabbitmq-server" ] }
    rabbitmq_cookie_token: secrete

I get an error:

statically included: /home/centos/ansible-installation/roles/dependencies/pip_install/tasks/configure.yml
ERROR! no action detected in task. This often indicates a misspelled module name, or incorrect module path.

The error appears to have been in '/home/centos/ansible-installation/roles/dependencies/pip_install/tasks/configure.yml': line 40, column 3, but may
be elsewhere in the file depending on the exact syntax problem.

The offending line appears to be:

- name: Drop pip global config(s)
  ^ here

The task is :
- name: Drop pip global config(s)
    src: "global.conf.j2"

config_template task is coming from https://github.com/openstack/openstack-ansible-plugins/blob/master/action/_v2_config_template.py and cloned locally
also I have set the action_plugins = /home/centos/openstack-ansible-plugins:/home/centos/openstack-ansible-plugins/action
from a bit of debugging its look like the the path is scanned

Any ideas will be appreciated
