Is there any option to control execution of ansible playbook by mean of user interactive mode ? I mean before executing any task it prompts for the user input and based on user input it takes action to run or not.

Ansible is configuration management tool. It supports ad-hoc mode as well as scripting mode. Sometime users want interactive mode while dealing with scripting just to have control on few tasks. The option --step is used while running a playbook. It prompts for user input (y/n/c). Based on user input associated task is executed or not.
