Exploring mender here… I’ve been playing around with it. I have searched the docs and I’ve seen nothing about this… probably I’m searching the wrong terms… but…
Is there a way to push any values from the server to the client? Think ‘device inventory’, but the other way around.
Let me explain: With device inventory, the client is pushing some values to the server… Is there any way (apart from doing an application deployment) to make some arbitrary values from the server available to the client?
For example, to change log verbosity of the app running in the device… I’d change the value or an attribute in the server and the next time the client connects, it picks the new value. My app running on the client would then change the log verbosity.
