When creating job templates you want to reuse the job template for multiple hosts without creating a new dynamic inventory or group every time. That’s why they have made the “limit” field. Never mentioned this field before, lol.
You can limit the collection with the following patterns:
- 1 Host = Just the hostname
- Multiple hosts = host1,host2,host3
- Group = Groupname
- Multiple Groups = Group1:Group2:Group3
- Exclude Group in Group = Group1:!Group4
