Hi,

It depend on your ansible version.

my lab ansible core version is 2.14.8 and ansible-navigator version is 3.3.1
If you use like as that version you can try to create new config file as shown below

If you dont have any ansible-navigator.yml you can try;

$ ansible-navigator settings --sample > /tmp/ansible-navigator.yml

$ mv -iv > /tmp/ansible-navigator.yml .

$ ansible-navigator config

then type:

:f role

:1                <-- Default roles path

Example default config:


$ cat .ansible-navigator.yml
---
ansible-navigator:
ansible:
config:
path: .ansible.cfg
execution-environment:
image: registry.redhat.io/ansible-automation-platform-24/ee-supported-rhel8:latest
pull:
policy: missing

$ cat .ansible.cfg
[defaults]
collections_path = /home/remzi/.ansible/collections:./collections:/usr/share/ansible/collections
#collections_path={{ ANSIBLE_HOME ~ "/collections:/usr/share/ansible/collections" }}
# (boolean) A boolean to enable or disable scanning the sys.path for installed collections
collections_scan_sys_path=True
roles_path=/home/remzi/ansible/custom-roles:/usr/share/ansible/roles:/etc/ansible/roles

callbacks_enabled=ansible.posix.timer,ansible.posix.profile_tasks
