Job names renamed to category - #12812
···====================================== Previously, you had the possibility to have a job name ("Install Package") and multiple templates that implement it ("Install RPM - SSH", "Install DEB - SSH"), but users found this difficult to use. Job names have been removed, and jobs are now only created based on the template. The name field has been repurposed to group templates by category.
Render a template from another - #13240
Render a template from another, and pass in particular inputs. This allows for
example a generic “install foreman” job and other jobs such as “install foreman
with remote execution” and “install foreman with chef support.” More details
are available in the manual.
API + CLI for recurring and delayed jobs - #12684
API and CLI now support scheduling recurring and delayed jobs.
