Removals

  • Removed the Update on Project Update field (update_on_project_update) in projects.

So if this option was previously set on the inventory source, it is recommended that both inventory and project are set to 《Update on Launch》.

  • Fallback behavior removed when an instance group is defined on a job template or inventory
