Ansible authenticate to Microsoft Azure using credential profiles Part 2

This part is continuation of Ansible authenticate to Microsoft Azure using credential profiles Part 1. Earlier I used automatic variables to use profile while executing ansible yaml script. But it is sometimes very inefficient, So inside the Ansible azure yaml code you can use profile parameter as highlighted below in the script. Security profiles are found inside ~/.azure/credentials file (Information added with azure subscription_id, client_id, secret, tenant).

#Ansible variable yaml file - rginfo_var.yml
---
name: vcloud-lab.com
tags:
  - orgnization:vcloud-lab.com
  - owner

#Ansible Task yaml file - rginfo.yaml
---
- name: Get Azure resource group information
  hosts: localhost
  connection: local
  gather_facts: false

  collections:
    - azure.azcollection

  tasks:
  - name: Include variable file
    ansible.builtin.include_vars:
      file: rginfo_var.yml
      name: rginfo

  - name: Get Azure resource group information
    azure_rm_resourcegroup_info:
      name: "{{ rginfo.name }}"
      tags: "{{ rginfo.tags }}"
      profile: dev
      #list_resources: yes
    register: resource_groups

  - name: Show/Print resource group information
    debug:
      var: resource_groups

My credentials file under ~/.azure/ looks like below. It is INI file sections with key pair value file, I am using dev profile. 

Download this ansible azure profile script here or it is also available on github.com/janviudapi.

Below is the results after running azure ansible yaml file with ansible-playbook command.
