A flaw was found in Ansible Galaxy Collections. When collections are built manually, any files in the repository directory that are not explicitly excluded via the “build_ignore“ list in "galaxy.yml" include files in the “.tar.gz“ file. This contains sensitive info, such as the user’s Ansible Galaxy API key and any secrets in “ansible“ or “ansible-playbook“ verbose output without the“no_log“ redaction. Currently, there is no way to deprecate a Collection Or delete a Collection Version. Once published, anyone who downloads or installs the collection can view the secrets.
