#5277 closed enhancement (fixed)

Plugin Directory Admin: Add 'button' or method to trigger plugin syncs via wp-admin

Reported by: ipstenu's profile Ipstenu Owned by: otto42's profile Otto42
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords: needs-patch


In light of the June 18 outage where plugin updates aren't being properly synced, @otto42 pointed out it would be useful if the wp-admin page for a plugin had a button or such to 'force' an update. This would obviate the need for grabbing someone with systems access every time a plugin got stuck for whatever reason, and in cases like this would let us ensure security fixes were properly handled in a timely manner.
