I am trying to process the result from the find module. The result contains

The number of files depends on the number of files found in the directories
and is set by result.matched

Using the with_sequence loop should do the trick, i think. But i ran into a

with_sequence: start=0 end={{ variable }}, expects {{ variable }} to be an
integer. Casting {{ variable | int}} results in a zero value, which should
be 3.

Any suggestions how to solve or work around my issue?

Why not use with_items?

After casting the variable correctly to an integer, off course i still have
to subtract 1 to set the correct index value for the results array.


file_path: "roles/ansible-role-iamGroups/files"
template_path: "roles/ansible-role-iamGroups/templates"

declared_int: 3


- name: find files
    recurse: yes
    patterns: "*.json"
  register: result

- name: register numbers variable
  shell: "echo {{result.matched}}"
  register: number

- name: list number variable (==> string value 3)
  debug: var=number

- name: list result hard coded (works)
  debug: "var=result.files[{{item}}].path"
  with_sequence: "start=0 end=2 stride=1"

- name: list result
  debug: var=item.path
  with_items: result.files
