1. Proposed title of this feature request
Allow logging playbook to scale ES cluster down.
3. What is the nature and description of the request?
Currently, the logging playbook does not allow the cluster to be resized (scaled down), it only allows to increase (scale up) the number of ES instances.
4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)
This is a basic task that is often needed when a VM or server is decommissioned or when the amount of ES instances needs to be reduced.
5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)
By adding this functionality to the logging playbook or through a manual procedure described in Openshift documentation.
7. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat bugzilla?
With the introduction of OpenShift 4, Red Hat has delivered or roadmapped a substantial number of features based on feedback by our customers. Many of the enhancements encompass specific RFEs which have been requested, or deliver a comparable solution to a customer problem, rendering an RFE redundant.
This bz (RFE) has been identified as a feature request not yet planned or scheduled for an OpenShift release and is being closed.
If this feature is still an active request that needs to be tracked, Red Hat Support can assist in filing a request in the new JIRA RFE system, as well as provide you with updates as the RFE progress within our planning processes. Please open a new support case: https://access.redhat.com/support/cases/#/case/new

As the new Jira RFE system is not yet public, Red Hat Support can help answer your questions about your RFEs via the same support case system.
