Ansible module for file conversion excel to json

I’m looking for Ansible module for file conversion from excel to json.

I cannot go with Python script, since I had to install pandas, openpyxl packages/ modules to convert files. Since we have Ansible implemented, I would like to know whether there is any Ansible module that converts Excel file to Json format.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

If there is a module for conversion from Excel to JSON it will likely require installation of one of the Python libraries you mention.

It’s not unsusual for a module or a plugin to require additional software: the git module requires the Git system package, and the dig lookup plugin, say, requires dnspython.

So, if you have the knowhow to create such a module, have at it! :slight_smile:


Exporting from Excel as csv and then using the community.general.read_csv module might be an option?
