In the post_configure_source of the AnsibleTasks component, we can write a script to access the enrionment variables of the AnsibleRole component:

- debug:
- "Hello I am an ansible task {{ SOURCE_NODE }} executes on {{ SOURCE_HOST }} to connect with {{ TARGET_NODE }} at {{ TARGET_IP }}."
- "I can access the env variable FOO on the target node {{ TARGET_NODE }} with value: {{ TARGET_FOO }}."

Expected result
