Concourse User Input Ability

Hello everyone,

I created a POC to allow Concourse to accept input from a user. I have created a repo here: repo. I just wanted to share this.

Interesting idea. I’d like to see something that supports user input for toggling read-only stuff like debug modes.

However, being able to change build parameters on the fly violates a core principal of concourse’s aim to reduce snowflaking. Coming from Jenkins, which in many ways is what leads to notorious snowflaking in the first place, I could see how one might struggle without having this baked in to concourse.

Personally, I hope we don’t ever see something like this officially integrated into concourse, but the extensibility and proof of concept you made is a testament to the power of being able to customize it for your own purposes :slight_smile:
