Anytime you are dealing with something over the internet saving frequently
is just plain good practice.
Let's say I have a farm that I am building. It will consist of 3 server
roles. It might take me half an hour or more to provision each role
because I need to pause and go create a script (I have Scalr open in
multiple browser tabs) or build an AMI or some other related task. Or any
other of the many interruptions people experience in a day. I would like to
just be able to save my work, but stay on the page I am on so I can just
pick up where I left off. Right now, once you save it, it take you out to
the Farm List. Some people might have a hundred farms on that list.
I am sure I am not the only person who finds this to be very annoying.
YES PLEASE, so much yes to this. I'd like to be able to iterate on editing the farm without being kicked out to the farm list with every save.
Concrete use case: I'm tweaking an nginx proxy config, and for every edit, i have to save the farm and go kick the scalarizr on the server. Now, after every save, I have to: go back to the farm, find the nginx role, click on the proxy, just to get where i was a moment ago.
(this really applies to ANY small edits on the farm that i'd like to make and incrementally test)
(been quietly cursing at this behaviour for 2 years, but never thought to speak up - my own damn fault ;))
