Accessing command options in ansible tasks

I’m developing workflows that use ansible tasks to provision a launched VM. In the Create Instance dialog, I get the the Automation stage, and when I select my workflow, a field pops up for each Ansible task that says “Command Options”

I can’t find anything in the docs that explains what format to use here enter data, or how to access that data in ansible when I do. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

If this field actually worked (hint: it doesn’t), then you would enter arguments here exactly as you would if you were running the ‘ansible-playbook’ command on the command line. You could ad-hoc add verbosity with ‘-vvv’ or add an extravar with ‘-e myvar=myvalue’ or other things.

Again, that’s IF this worked at invocation time, but right now it seems to completely ignore these arguments. You CAN enter these arguments in the same field in the underlying task, but ad-hoc at time of invocation is broken.
