In my opinion, this is not something you would build using Ansible. You would only use Ansible to deploy the solution. 

  1. You can make a Powershell script that does what you want it to.
  2. You can use the Windows scheduling service (compare it to cron on Linux) to run it.
  3. You can use Ansible to deploy it.

Hi @jijojoy ,

Thanks for reaching out !

You need three modules to work on this :

1. win_shell : https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/collections/ansible/windows/win_shell_module.html to run a command / powershell command to get the desired output. 

2. Format your output using "template" module or use this filter to convert the stdout to a table {{abc.stdout | table }}

3, use mail module to send a mail with that table attachment : https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/collections/community/general/mail_module.html
