Description Terry Bowling 2018-12-19 15:39:28 UTC
Ability to perform system rollbacks in Cockpit to provide the ability for customers to rollback changes or package updates after making system changes.

Probably this will involve using LVM snapshots and BOOM similar to the inplace upgrade tooling.

Further details and user stories can be found in Jira.

Comment 1 Martin Pitt 2019-01-04 12:07:08 UTC
Research and implementation is tracked in https://projects.engineering.redhat.com/browse/COCKPIT-358.

At first sight this should be integrated into the "Software Updates" page, which is in appstream. Thus reassigning.

Corresponding to https://projects.engineering.redhat.com/browse/RHELBU-38, I close this for RHEL 7. It requires an entirely new API (snapshot-manager) to work reliably, and it's getting too late for RHEL 7.7. This will be a RHEL 8 feature.

Comment 7 Martin Pitt 2019-06-04 05:45:15 UTC
Bwah, wrong bug, this was meant for bug 1660928.

Comment 10 RHEL Program Management 2021-02-01 07:31:22 UTC
