This article covers Ansible Loops and examples of using Loops in Ansible. In fact, to avoid repeating the task several times in your playbook file, it's better to use loops instead. A loop allows you to repeat instructions, typically until a certain condition is met. Ansible offers different looping methods, with the loop keyword being the most recommended option for longer term compatibility.
This article covers how to use the "when" clause in Ansible. In fact, In Ansible, you can define conditions that will be evaluated before a task is executed.
