How to authenticate ansible managed node using cyberark password


I'm having 1000 + RHEL 6/7 servers integrated with cyberark training , the local user's (sudo user - remote user as per Ansible control node) is fetching password from my cyberark and it gets refreshed every 8 hours. Can you please suggest procedure to authenticate and execute my playbooks on the managed nodes using cyberark password.

As luck would have it, I was watching a YouTube presentation earlier today, the beginning of which covered using Ansible's Vault feature. It was mentioned that other authentication vaults could be used as well. Might be worth taking a look at.

HTH...

If you need to restore a server from backup (eg. 1-day old backup), what will you do? Will you reset account password?
However, it's possible: I replace SSH keys of Ansible user from time to time.
