SAM application template updater

SAM application template updater

Idea of the day: Why not have a way to both a: trigger an existing downloaded/imported SAM application monitor template to update (downloading the latest version from thwack) and also b: ensuring it then gets applied to all the nodes that already exist? This might be a way to preserve data and/or keep templates up to date where people may be having errors due to stale versions of a template and/or a way to highlight updated templates, in addition.

I like the concept, but I'm not sure I agree with auto-update and apply.  I think I'd prefer a notification similar to the way module (NPM, NCM, SAM, etc.) updates are done. Then I can pick-n-choose what I want to update, and I can review the updates before applying them.

I was thinking that people would be triggering this by choice with a notification (similar to product blog updates) not just auto-update.  I still think it's needed, though.

Agreed and onboard with the idea.

It makes perfect sense.

I like the idea, but would like a button to "back out update" or "what would change" because over time, application monitors get tweaked with custom ports, etc..., that get forgotten about and this could cause much consternation.

I like the users on Thwack, and we have some especially talented folks who post out various code-goodies for us to share.  Having said that, the code-goodies are generally written to solve A specific problem.  If that auto-magic update doesn't fit what you do, suddenly you have a tripped alert, and something to fix.  So, nice idea, but would really not a magic update.  Perhaps as mentioned, a way to indicate download, and approval for update ?

I agree, the idea of submitting an idea is to flesh out more of it with discussion. I don't know if this will ever go anywhere or not, depending on the SAM development priority/schedule.

bumping! This would be good to revisit! #bumpsquad

bump for #bumpsquad​ !

bumping, it's been a long time and I could still see this having use.
