#2854 closed feature-request (WontFix)

Don't re-create the whole config files while updating content

Description

Hi,

My feature request is quite simple. When a config file like hostlist.conf.1.2 is modified via the interface, the file is completly re-created.

I'm trying to sync my configuration onto a private configs repository for each of my desktops.

So I did a symbolic link of hostlist.conf.1.2 onto the repository to be able to register each modification.

But this symbolic link is always removed because of this logic.

Thanks.

  • Resolution set to WontFix
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm sure there is another way to achieve that sync but I'm afraid the way the config files are saved will not be changed.

Can you please elaborate why this could not be changed?

I'm sure there is another way to achieve that sync

Well, I don't really see how... any idea?

Thanks.

It's a major change that is not going to be contemplated.

I can't help you there but if you are using soft symlinks then it should not be an issue.

I don't really see where is the major change. Which part could be complicated?

I can't help you there but if you are using soft symlinks then it should not be an issue.

Thanks for pointing this out because this is a soft symlink.

The link is created with the ln -s command. But if you do some modification on the connection manager through the UI, the link is completely removed and replaced by a new plain file.

Could we maybe investigate on this issue?

Thanks.
