Hi all,

I'm new to Ansible and am trying to use some variables with quotes. The 
command I'm trying to run is as follows:
rabbitmqctl set_permissions -p /vhost username ".*" ".*" ".*"

To do this, I'm trying to use the command module. If I include the command 
exactly as above, the command runs successfully but I'm trying to make this 
reusable so I've changed a few of those into variables instead. My task 
currently looks like this:
- name: Set user permissions on RabbitMQ
  become: yes
  command: rabbitmqctl set_permissions -p /"{{ rabbitVhost }}" "{{ 
rabbitUser }}" "{{ rabbitAcl }}"

I can't seem to get this to work. I've tried sending the parameters like 
ansible-playbook rabbit.yml 
\\\".*\\\" \\\".*\\\""}'

The error I get is as below and it looks like the parameters are being set 
fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => {
    "changed": true,
    "cmd": [
        "\".*\" \".*\" \".*\""

    "stderr": "Error: operation set_permissions used with invalid

            \"\\\".*\\\" \\\".*\\\" \\\".*\\\"\"]",
    "stderr_lines": [
        "Error: operation set_permissions used with invalid parameter: 
\"\\\".*\\\" \\\".*\\\" \\\".*\\\"\"]"

Any help would be appreciated.
