Retrieving a value from Cluster, and assign it to a variable in Playbook

How can I retrieve the corresponding export policy name based on a known volume name, then assign it to a variable in Playbook. The goal is to use the NA module to create a rule based on the policy name. 

 

I don't know if Playbook can do that. Thank you!

Not sure if this is the best way to do it you can make an API call to the OnTap system to get the export policy name.

- hosts: localhost
tasks:
- name: Get NetApp UUID of Volume
uri:
url: https://cluster_name/api/storage/volumes?name=volume_name&fields=nas.export_policy.name&return_records=true&return_timeout=15
url_username: username
url_password: password
method: GET
force_basic_auth: yes
validate_certs: no
register: vol_export_policy
- name: Set export policy fact
set_fact:
export_policy: "{{ vol_export_policy.json.records[0].nas.export_policy.name }}"
