In automate when trying to shortlist the nodes that's using a specific version of a cookbook there is no way that I can do today to shortlist using version so would be really nice if this feature can be added.

    Hey! This will need some user interviews. The declined state simply means that it is not in the immediate plan. We will get back to you once the team has bandwidth to consider this.

    Hi, Yes. We have nodes running the same cookbook but different versions and we din't find a way in Automate to shortlist the nodes that's using the same version of cookbook. Is there a reason for declining this idea/feature request ?

    Thanks for raising this idea. Trying to understand this further, are you using same cookbook with different version on different nodes?
