# Settings¶

## Introduction¶

Playbook comes with plethora of knobs to turn and tune.

See default.yml.

## Variable ordering¶

Generally the order is this

• In vars section of your playbook.yml you put the basic settings which cannot be deduced from the context (git_repository)
• Then we include secrets.yml vault with all passwords and API tokens
• Then we apply defaults.yml which generates a lot of variables based on vars input which you usually don’t want to tune (database name, username, log file locations, etc.)
• If you are unhappy with defaults.yml results, you can create and include yet another file local-config.yml which overrides these
• Now you can still apply host and group specific variables as per Ansible manual
