Description Matt Ruzicka 2017-11-07 22:06:36 UTC
Wasn't sure which component this would be part of.

2. Who is the customer behind the request?

Account: added in first comment

TAM customer: yes
CSM customer: yes
Strategic: yes

3. What is the nature and description of the request?

Customer is looking for an easy way to undue an ansible playbook if the remediation caused problems. Normally they would manually create a snapshot (if it was a VM), apply patch/run playbook, and then rollback to the snapshot if needed.  Not all systems are VMs, but they'd like this reversion to be part of the tolls provided.

4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)

Customer is looking to increase confidence in running playbooks and improve operational efficiency.

5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)

No specific suggestion on implementation. Would seem to be playbook/issue specific - either working with yum, reverting configuration settings, etc.

6. For each functional requirement listed, specify how Red Hat and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.

Run a supplied remediation playbook and revert.

7. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat Bugzilla?

I did not see an existing RFE, but I could have missed it.

8. Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies and which release would they like to target (i.e. RHEL5, RHEL6)?

No specific timelines.

9. Is the sales team involved in this request and do they have any additional input?

Not specifically involved but can be if needed.

10. List any affected packages or components.

Insights, Ansible playbooks, remediation instructions

11. Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?
