[RFE] generic remote execution not available from host collection actions
Last modified: 2017-08-02 01:55:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Some users use the host collections page to run generic remote execution jobs. However, there is no easy way to do this and you have to go through a circuitous route of selecting package installation via ReX to set this up. If you forget the last step of the circuitous route, you'll end up updating packages on your systems that you meant to run another command on, which can have bad outcomes.
Ideally, the "Collection Actions" page under host collections would have an option for "Run SSH command" to go along with the other four options. This could go to a pre-populated remote execution invocation page that has the hosts filled in, and already has "Run Command - SSH Default" selected.
