- name: Enable EPEL repository needed by Pulp
  include_role:
    name: pulp_repos
  vars:
    __pulp_repos_epel_enable_default: True

Example Usage#

If you want to install Pulp on a device with EPEL repository already enabled, you don't want to enable it second time. In this case it is enough just put line bellow in your Ansible variables:

pulp_repos_epel_enable: False
