There should be easier way to random or at least documentation

How does one put a random minutes delay in yaml?

There’s 100x posts saying to do it all sorts of different ways but I can’t frt any of them to work.

I propose it should be easier for newbies to understand rather than trawling throwmugh forum posts for 5 years ago.

    - delay:
        minutes: "{{ range(0, 60)|random|int }}"


So what’s your proposal to make it easier?

Using the forum’s search function seems easy enough.

Here’s one that was marked with the Solution tag.

The principle is largely the same for most examples: specify a range of acceptable values and then choose one value at random.

Post what you tried but failed to work.
