New Features (1)

  • Runner: Our automated infrastructure management service has added the following new features:
    • Added support for Ansible wait_for module.
    • Set default fork count to 5 to align with Ansible conventions. Users can still specify a value greater than 5.
    • Runner Job API now supports the passing of Ansible options (i.e. list-tasks, list-hosts, etc.).
    • Additional level of control regarding public products. Public products are now white-listed. Users are no longer able to simply make a product public by setting the visibility to 'public'.
    • Added basic search by name capability on the jobs view page in the Runner UI. (image is for this bullet) Runner UI Search
