Enable Ansible host_vars/group_vars or yaml editor to import a huge amount of variables in UI


It is difficult to manage/override a big amount of Ansible variables in the UI. So we would like to be able to use the Ansible principle to manage variables through importing the default Ansible variables directory host_vars/group_vars in the UI or to let the satellite/foreman read them from a directory like /etc/ansible/host_vars /etc/ansible/group_vars. When this not possible, what about having a yaml editor in the satellite/foreman UI, where we can upload Ansible variables at once?

We use too many Ansible roles to manage our systems, and it is not easy to override a huge number of Ansible variables in the UI.
