If you followed previous examples in our Ansible documentation, you might have noticed that we do not do much in the Initialization phase.
If it comes to Ansible stacks, during that phase we try to auto-detect the requirements.yml file that will be used to install dependencies. We will look for it in the following locations:
requirements.ymlin the root directory
roles/requirements.ymlfor roles requirements
collections/requirements.ymlfor collections requirements
We also check for the alternative
.yaml extension for the paths listed above.
As an example, try using an example
|Example requirements.yml file|

After our Initialization phase detects this file, it will use Ansible Galaxy to install those dependencies.
