Fixed In Version: rhel-system-roles-1.12.0-1.el8
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
.The `logging_purge_confs` option no longer fails to delete unnecessary configuration files Previously, the `logging_purge_confs` variable was prepared to delete unnecessary logging configuration files, but failed to clean them up. Consequently, even though the `logging_purge_confs` variable was set to true, unnecessary configuration files were not cleaned up, but left in the configuration directory. This issue is now fixed and the `logging_purge_confs` variable has been redefined to work as follows. * If `logging_purge_confs` is set to `true`, it removes files in `rsyslog.d` which do not belong to any rpm packages. That includes configuration files generated by the previous `logging` role run. The `logging_purge_confs` default value is `false`.
