While the rbac-playbook script helps people run playbooks, it's missing
some significant features that make ansible much easier to use. We're
replacing the old rbac-playbook script with a new piece of code that
does the same role-based access control but has some new features.
The usage of rbac-playbook will be pretty much the same as it has been
with some new options which should make make life easier. The old
script will be replaced with ansible_utils later today.
the '-t <tagname>' option will run only the parts of a playbook which
are tagged with that <tagname> which allows single sections of a
playbook to be run instead of running through everything, every time
the '-l <inventory name>' option will run a playbook but exclude all
targets that don't match <inventory name>. This is very useful when
you want to run a playbook without targeting all the hosts it was
Start At Task:
the '--start-at-task <task name>' option runs the entire playbook but
skips all tasks before <task name> which is useful when re-running a
longer playbook to correct a failure.
The new script is part of the ansible_utils package which can be found
