This appears to be exceptionally bad design: that if you’re not up-to-date, you can’t see anything at all in cscli. Other threads state “not being up-to-date does not stop crowdsec from working” but not being able to see anything from the cli means I have no idea if it’s working or what is going on. I would argue that the cli not working is … not working.
For a security critical piece of software it is simply unacceptable to lock you out of information just because you can’t update. This is taking design inspiration from Microsoft, which is extremely bad.
- NEVER lock the user out of critical information.
- If it’s not possible to update, do not let the user know.
