Description Andrew Dahms 2018-01-09 00:55:07 UTC
Red Hat CloudForms 4.6 adds the ability to pause and resume containers providers. This allows users to add a number of potentially resource-intensive providers, then enable and disable those that are not required at a given time.

A procedure on how to pause a containers provide and how to resume a paused provider must be added to the Managing Providers guide, and should answer the following questions -

* Why is this useful to users?
* What happens when a provider is paused? (I.e. the provider itself is not turned
  off; just the link between CloudForms and the provider)
* What happens when a provider is resumed?
