Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup an ansible playbook service
2. Send a list as an extra variable
List will always be treated as a string, not a list
Should be able to insert a list into an ansible playbook as an extra variable
Currently UI returns the extra vars data in a string format. Backend can't retrieve the list data out of the string.
Ansible Tower UI allows the user to input extra vars in both yaml and json format. I am attaching a snapshot of it.
Can we add the same function to our UI so backend can get the list data from UI in either yaml or json format?

Ansible Tower UI for extra vars
This was not part of the original design and has a large impact. Changing ticket to RFE.
Assigning to Loic for scoping.
The limitation is in CloudForms.
ok, Let's go for it.
Thanks Loic, this RFE involves UI changes and should be scoped for 5.11. Does that work for you?

This is DEFERRED, therefore I cannot make any automation for this at the moment.
