Summary0000980: release command not allowed in runscript makes admin job "ReleaseAllTapeDrives.conf" unusable
DescriptionIn Chapter "19.14 Tape Drive Cleaning" in Bareos documentation an admin job "ReleaseAllTapeDrives.conf" is given to release tapes if the tape libraries auto-cleaning won’t work when there are tapes in the drives.
But this job fails with error:
"Can't use release command in a runscript : release: is an invalid command."

It seems that at some point running release was forbidden, but this makes the example in Chapter "19.14 Tape Drive Cleaning" useless.
Please update the documentation with how to achieve tape release with currently allowed commands (or allow release command in a runscript again).
Steps To ReproduceImplement admin job "ReleaseAllTapeDrives.conf" as described in Bareos documentation Chapter "19.14 Tape Drive Cleaning"
TagsNo tags attached.

I have the same issue, log files says:

This is *really* annoying since my tape drive tries to clean itself and ofc it runs into an error since there is another tape loaded.

one and a half years are over since this bug was reported and assigned - will this be fixed or not ?
Some feedback would be nice.
