Thanks for collaborating with us!

Show detailed information in automate for all resources

We would like to see the changes executed on a node in Automate, similar to how it is displayed in the chef-client output. The file resource has this functionality - please add similar functionality for other resources.

Currently, with some resources such as group, I see is that this resource has been successful, but there are no details. This isn’t too useful to me. Other resources, such as file give a real nice ‘diff’ option in Automate. It tells me exactly the difference it saw and the action it took. This is what I would like to see on all resources applied since it’s already in the chef-client output.
