      Epic Goal

      • Provide a mechanism to enable upgrades from failed operator installations without manual intervention; i.e. "Fail Forward"

      Why is this important?

      • Today, when an operator's installation fails due to a defect – e.g. it's bundle has a bad CRD spec – users must manually reconcile k8s resources – e.g. delete the operator – before it can be upgraded to a working version
      • When a defect is known and a working version is published, manual intervention becomes unnecessary overhead for both users and authors


      1. An issue with the operator's manifests – e.g. a typo – prevents the installation from succeeding
      2. The operator's deployment crashes; e.g. bad code

      Acceptance Criteria

      • Authors can opt-in to allow automatic upgrades of a previous failed installation (pegoncal: removing this from A/C as it got descoped)
      • Users can opt-in to automatic upgrades of failed installations for specific operators (if allowed by author)
      • Failed installations do not automatically upgrade without user opt-in
      • Once automatic upgrades of a failed operator are enabled, no further intervention by the user is necessary to ensure available upgrades are applied
