Section Number and Name: Rollback the Application of a Patch in Zip Form Using the Patch Management System

Describe the issue: In section Rollback the Application of a Patch in Zip Form Using the Patch Management System on step 2 it's said the command to launch patching rollback is:
patch rollback --patch-id=PATCH_ID --reset-configuration=TRUE

But "--patch-id=PATCH_ID" option doesn't exist:

[standalone@localhost:9999 /] patch rollback --
--override-all          --override-modules      --override=             --preserve=             --reset-configuration=  --rollback-to

Suggestions for improvement:

Comment 1 David Michael 2016-02-08 01:14:04 EST
I verified in Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform - Version 6.4.0.Alpha1 and I could view the following:
[standalone@localhost:9999 /] patch rollback --
--override-all          --patch-id=             --rollback-to           
--override-modules      --preserve=             
--override=             --reset-configuration=  
[standalone@localhost:9999 /] patch rollback --
So, this is not a bug.
Comment 2 Elena Renedo 2016-02-08 02:31:15 EST

I'm using Jboss EAP 6.4.5, not 6.4.0.Alpha1 and "--patch-id=" option doesn't appear:

[standalone@localhost:9999 /] patch info
    "outcome" : "success",
    "result" : {
        "cumulative-patch-id" : "jboss-eap-6.4.5.CP",
        "patches" : [],
        "version" : "6.4.5.GA",
        "addon" : null,
        "layer" : {"base" : {
            "cumulative-patch-id" : "layer-base-jboss-eap-6.4.5.CP",
            "patches" : []
[standalone@localhost:9999 /] patch rollback --
--override-all          --override-modules      --override=             --preserve=             --reset-configuration=  --rollback-to

--patch-id should still work. I'm not sure why it isn't showed by the autocompleter, I'll have a look at that. It's probably a bug, but if you write the argument into CLI manually, it will work
Comment 7 Jan Martiska 2016-02-10 01:36:24 EST
Ok so just FYI, the argument name became optional in EAP 6.4+, so there you can write either
patch rollback --patch-id=PATCH
patch rollback PATCH
and it is equivalent.
