This is what I have now, and it is still not working.
- name: Get app version
  command: curl -H application/json localhost:8088/rs
  register: get_version
  ignore_errors: true

- name: Set app version as fact
          app_version: "{{ ((get_version | 
default({'stdout':'N/A'})).stdout | from_json).version }}"
  ignore_errors: true

- name: Gather facts
  register: ansible_facts

- name: Send facts somewhere
    module: uri
    url: "{{ some_url }}"
    method: PUT
    body: "{{ ansible_facts | combine(fact_app_version) | to_json }}"
    status_code: 204
    body_format: json

The error is:

FAILED! => {"failed": true, "msg": "the field 'args' has an invalid value 
([]), and could not be converted to an dict. Error was: No JSON object 
could be decoded\n\nThe error appears to have been in 'update-facts.yml': 
line 18, column 7, but may\nbe elsewhere in the file depending on the exact 
syntax problem.\n\nThe offending line appears to be:\n\n\n    - name: Set 
app version as fact\n      ^ here\n"}

I am fairly certain what I am trying to do should be rather simply, however 
the more I dig into it, the uglier it gets.
I want to add an optional fact to the dictionary of facts, and then send 
all facts somewhere.
What is the suggested approach do accomplish this?
