Chef Ideas

We do our best to implement as many Ideas as we can. Our Product team will evaluate all submitted ideas in a timely manner and will disposition each into one of the following categories: will integrate into the product roadmap, further research is needed, unlikely to implement.

Thanks for collaborating with us!

Option to mark node data as deleted/retired in Automate when it is cleared from Chef Server

We already pass the event when a node is being deleted from the chef-server to Automate. It would be nice to have an option to at least mark the node as "retired" (similar to missing) or deleting the node altogether in automate, so they can be easily ignored when looking for failures and/or compliance reports in Automate.
