I wanted to store value of ansible fact variable in some other variable, and also wanted to check is that fact variable is empty or not

Below is my code where i can print the value of ansible_local fact variable but i wanted that value to store in another variable say xyz. And also wanted to check that ansible_local.sj.inventory.as_tag variable value is empty or not

- name: -> Apply common configuration to {{ target }} nodes
  hosts: "{{ target }}"
  gather_facts: True

  user: root

  pre_tasks:
   - setup:
      filter: ansible_local

 tasks:
   - action: debug msg="{{ ansible_local.sj.inventory.as_tag }}"

Sample O/P:

TASK: [debug msg="{{ansible_local.sj.inventory.as_tag}}"]

You can use the set_fact module.

Here is an example....

- name: -> Apply common configuration to {{ target }} nodes
  hosts: "{{ target }}"
  gather_facts: True
  user: root

  pre_tasks:
   - setup:
      filter: ansible_local
   - set_fact:
       tag: "{{ ansible_local.sj.inventory.as_tag }}"
   - debug:
       var: tag
