Just came back after a few months away and I can't appear to select the skill or even use the keybinding anymore, it does nothing as the Operative.
Cover is now purely a sniper mechanic. Snipers don't work without cover.

Operative now has literally 0 abilities that would require cover, so they removed it. And well, even before, when it was available, it wasn't needed for an actual operative rotation, it was just used for agent-wide orbital strike, explosive probe and snipe (all these abilities are now sniper-exclusive).

I think the whole roll-to-cover thing became mostly pointless once they gave us scamper/exfiltrate. Still though, they could have let scoundrels/ops keep it for flavor.

Scoundrels/Operatives are BEYOND overpowered in PvP. Giving them access to cover would just be overkill, considering their toolbox already has everything in it they could ever want or need.

Itís not like anyone really used it in PvP for actually cover. Mostly to just quickly access the cover bar (since it was different from the normal one).

Aside from the quick dash did it not also grant the free immunities to leaps and interrupts?

Memory fuzzy, but I think it was 10m range roll-to-cover, and only ignored slows. I donít recall being immune to leaps and interrupts.

You could roll to cover or take cover where you stand (like snipers). It enabled skills that were only only usable from cover like snipe, explosive probe, orbital strike. Yes, op healers had these things. It didn't give you interrupt immunity, unlike snipers, but you were immune to leaps, just like snipers.

Oh yeah! we had explosive probe. I forgot about that. Good times
