Details

In ship-it we have a parameter 'Update prompt wait time', which lets us override how long it takes the 'please restart to apply update' dialog to be shown (original support in bug 821624, bug 823841). It's rarely used, but bug 1268340 raises the possibility that it will be more common.

We need to support this in Balrog (bug 1268350), and with that can always manually modify a release as needed. We should consider reconnecting the ship-it value with the automation, which is this bug.

This would require feeding the prompt value from the release into the updates task, and the balrog submission script would need to learn about adding promptWaitTime to the release json.
Component: Release Automation → Ship It
We already have UI in ship-it, so presumably it's in the JSON that release-runner gets, so this was about using it in the updates task which submits information like fileUrls into Balrog. Having said that, maybe this is just wontfix - it's never been used in anger.

It's still true that we've never used it - let's close this.
