Fixes #10655: Unclear field description in MOTD technique

History

#1 Updated by Alexis MOUSSET 7 months ago

  • Subject changed from Changing text in the MOTD. to Unclear field description in MOTD technique
  • Category set to Techniques
  • Target version set to 3.1.20
  • Severity set to Minor - inconvenience | misleading | easy workaround
  • User visibility set to Operational - other Techniques | Technique editor | Rudder settings
  • Effort required set to Very Small

This is the normal behavior, when the agent runs, it has no knowledge about previously applied configuration.
You need to check the "Enforce this MOTD only" to only have the live you entered in the form in your MOTD (and remove all the rest). It should be clearer in the form.

#4 Updated by François ARMAND 7 months ago

  • User visibility changed from Operational - other Techniques | Technique editor | Rudder settings to Getting started - demo | first install | level 1 Techniques

Changing the visibility to Getting started because motd is level 1 technique.

We thought of renaming: enforce to Append to existing MOTD (disabled by default).
But as the semantic is inverted, it may be complexe to migrate (or need to change name).

Perhaps adding a default to enforce, to?
