1. What is the nature and description of the request?
Context- By operation logs, It is meant, the logs from projects grouped in the .operation item in Kibana.

We already have "openshift_logging_curator_default_days" which configure the internal of days after which the logs to be deleted which gets applied to both Regular logs and Operation logs. To change the same for Operation logs, one needs to set it explicitly. After any update, the update playbook again sets the same value that is in "openshift_logging_curator_default_days" for both regular and operation logs.

A variable "openshift_logging_curator_ops_default_days" is requested, to segregate the setting for regular logs and operation logs while updation or installation.

2. Why does the customer need this?
The use case of this would be that, one need not to set the same setting(i.e to set the logs deletion days for operation logs) again after every update.

3. How would the customer like to achieve this?
By having an ansible inventory variable "openshift_logging_curator_ops_default_days" to the value as described.

4. Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies?
We don't have timeline dependencies, just this will be more customer friendly features and we will be happy if you could find time to improve this.

5. Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?
I think we could try to find some extra time to testing this functionality.
