The post-transaction-actions plugin is available under RHEL 8 by installing this dnf alternative: python3-dnf-plugin-post-transaction-actions

It works in a very similar way to the former yum-plugin-post-transaction-actions, more info at https://dnf-plugins-core.readthedocs.io/en/latest/post-transaction-actions.html
