In Ansible, if you want to access existing variables, then you need to use the 'env' lookup plugin.

For example, you want to access the value of the Office environment on the management machine, as shown in the following command, such as:


# ...  


local_home: "{{ lookup('env','Office') }}"  


{{ ansible_env.SOME_VARIABLE }}
