Using the find module to find unknown files in a given directory and 
register the results as a variable to be looped through later on. The debug 
of the registered var shows a full on array of all kinds of attributes 
about the files (way more than I want) - except the file name! It does show 
the file name in the files.path, which I should be able to filter with 
basename, but that doesn't work either. This either should be much more 
straightforward, or my understanding of this is way off.

Question: How do I store unknown file names in a dir as a list that I can 
loop through in a subsequent task?


My current play (I've tried a few different iterations - and the echo is 
just an example, would like to do other things like use the script module 
and such):

 ---
 - hosts: localhost
   tasks:
     - name: Check the files
       find:
         paths: /home/gforster/projects/scripts
       register: files_found
 
     - name: echo files
       command: "echo {{ item.path | basename }}"
       loop: "{{ files_found.files }}"


Expected Results:

TASK [echo files] 
*********************************************************************************************************************
changed: [localhost] => {
    "msg": "some_filesname"
}





Actual Results:
TASK [echo files] 
*********************************************************************************************************************
changed: [localhost] => (item={u'uid': 1000, u'woth': True, u'mtime': 
1522857501.1654217, u'inode': 20547673299942532, u'isgid': False, u'size':
