I agree, the --continue API seems unnecessary. I realized however that my initial remarks were a little unfair, because if an engine dies, you can't necessarily restart the failed action via stack-update, because we're in an unknown state. So what would be useful is persisting sufficient per-resource state that the following workflow becomes possible: - User initiates stack-create - Engine handling the create dies or is killed/restarted - Another engine detects the failure and puts the stack into a FAILED state, or the user has to wait for a lock timeout which does that. - User can do heat stack-update to continue the failed create Obviously it'd be best long term if the user-visible restart could be handled automatically, but the above would be a good first step.
