v0.15rc4
========

Released: Wed Jan 15 10:56:10 EET 2014

57 58 59 60 61
Synnefo-wide
------------

* Integrate Pithos tests in continuous integration.

62
* Change astakosclient to accept AUTH_URL instead of BASE_URL
63 64 65 66 67 68 69
  ASTAKOS_BASE_URL settings has been removed from Pithos and Cyclades
  and has been replaced with ASTAKOS_AUTH_URL. Both Pithos and Cyclades
  proxy the Astakos services under ASTAKOS_PROXY_PREFIX path.
  ASTAKOS_PROXY_PREFIX by default has a value of '_astakos'.
  More specifically, Astakos' identity service is proxied under
  '_astakos/identity', Astakos' account service is under '_astakos/account'
  and Astakos' ui service is under '_astakos/ui'.
70

71
* Add 'mail_admins' handler to 'django.request' logger in order to send email
72
  notifications to users listed in 'ADMINS' setting about unhandled exceptions
73 74
  in the code.

75 76
* Extend astakosclient to request and validate OAuth 2.0 access tokens

77 78 79
* Change response status code from 400 (Bad Request) to 405 (Not allowed
  method) in case of an unexpected request method.

80 81 82 83 84 85 86
Astakos
-------

* Changes in project schema:

  * A Project entry is created when submitting an application for a new
    project, rather than on approval. Its state is dependent on the state
87 88
    of its `reference' application (current definition). Lock Project rather
    than Chain (the latter is semantically obsolete).
89

90 91 92 93
  * Project states "Active - Pending" and "Suspended - Pending" have been
    removed. In management command `project-list', the existence of a pending
    modification is indicated by a non-blank `Pending AppID'.

94
  * Improve recording of project, application, and membership actions.
95

96 97
* Implement API calls for projects.

98 99 100 101 102 103
* Store the base URL of a component. Deployer should provide it when adding
  a new component. Service endpoints originating from a component are
  expected to match its base URL; otherwise, a warning is issued.
  Re-registration with `snf-component-register' affects both the base and
  the ui URL.

104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118
* Changes in resource and quota handling:

  * New resources are registered with unlimited default base quota,
    represented by 2**63-1.
  * Each newly accepted user copies the default value for all resources
    as their own base quota. A base quota is considered 'custom' if its
    value differs from the default.
  * Changing resource's default quota affects the base quota *only* of
    future users.
  * Resource definition got flags 'api_visible' and 'ui_visible',
    replacing flag 'allow_in_projects'. They control whether a user can
    access these resources. The system internally always accounts for
    all resources, and a user can get off quota even for a resource that
    is not visible.

119 120 121
* Remove API call GET /account/v1.0/authenticate in favor of
  POST /identity/v2.0/tokens.

122 123 124
* Export basic statistics about Astakos service from '/admin/stats/detail' API
  endpoint. Access to this endpoint is only allowed to users that belong to
  the Astakos groups that are defined in the
125
  'ASTAKOS_ADMIN_STATS_PERMITTED_GROUPS' setting. Statistics are also available
126 127
  from 'snf-manage stats-astakos' management command.

128 129 130 131 132
* Implement OAuth 2.0 Authorization Code Grant
  Add API calls for authorization code and access token generation

* Add API call for validating OAuth 2.0 access tokens

133
* **Shibboleth module** Extract unique identifier from the

139
* Management commands:
140

141
  * Introduced new commands:
142 143 144 145 146 147
	* component-show
	* quota-list (replacing quota, supports various filters)
	* quota-verify (replacing quota)
	* oauth2-client-add (register OAuth 2.0 client)
	* oauth2-client-list (list registered oauth 2.0 clients)
	* oauth2-client-remove (remove OAuth 2.0 client)
148
  * Changed commands:
149 150 151 152
	* component-add got options --base-url and --ui-url
	* resource-modify --limit became --default-quota
	* user-modify can operate on multiple users with --all and --exclude
	* user-modify --set-base-quota became --base-quota
153
  * Removed commands:
154 155 156
	* quota
	* resource-import (subsumed by service-import)
	* resource-export-astakos (subsumed by service-export-astakos)
157

158 159 160
Cyclades
--------

161 162 163
* Major changes to Cyclades networks:

  * Implement 'cyclades_network' service, containing the /networks, /ports,
164 165 166
    /subnets and /floatingips API endpoints under '/network/v2.0'. The old
    /networks API of 'cyclades_compute' (under /compute/v2.0) is
    removed.
167 168 169 170 171
  * Implement `snf-manage subnet-{create, list, modify, inspect}' management
    commands for handling of subnets.
  * Implement `snf-manage port-{create, list, remove, inspect}' management
    commands for handling of ports.
  * Add two new settings, 'CYCLADES_FORCED_SERVER_NETWORKS' and
172 173
    'CYCLADES_DEFAULT_SERVER_NETWORKS' to control the networks that newly
    created servers will be connected.
174 175 176 177 178 179

* Implement Floating IP addresses, which are IPv4 addresses that can be
  dynamically added and removed to a running server.

  * Add new 'cyclades.floating_ip' resource.
  * Implement 'snf-manage floating-ip-{create,list,remove,attach,detach}'
180
    management commands to handle floating IPs.
181 182
  * Add 'floating_ip_pool' attribute to networks to mark networks that can
    be used as floating IP pools.

183 184 185 186

* Implement 'resize' server action.

  * Implement the 'resize' server action, to change the flavor of a server.
187
    Only 'cpu' and 'memory' resizing is supported.
Christos Stavrakakis's avatar

188 189

* Compute quotas for CPU and memory of running vms.
190 191 192 193 194 195 196 197 198

  * Change 'cyclades.cpu' and 'cyclades.ram' resources to represent the CPU
    and RAM for running VMs. Total CPU and RAM usage is represented by new
    'cyclades.total_cpu' and 'cyclades.total_ram' resources.

* Refer to Ganeti NICs by their name instead of their index.

  * Make cyclades give a unique name to each Ganeti NIC. NICs are refered by
    their unique name and not by their index inside the VM that are connected
199
    to.
200 201 202 203 204 205 206

* Support firewall profile for all NICs of an instance. Change firewall
  settings to be filled with the unique name of the NIC. The affected settings
  are the GANETI_FIREWALL_{ENABLED, DISABLED, PROTECTED}_TAG settings.
* Add accounting for public IP addresses that is accessible via `snf-manage
  ip-list` management command and via the helpdesk app.
* Implement IPv6 only networks.
207
* Extend servers info API response with 'SNF:fqdn' attribute, and introduce
208 209
  CYCLADES_SERVERS_FQDN to set the template for servers FDQN. Remove
  'UI_VM_HOSTNAME_FORMAT' setting.
210
* Extend servers info API response with 'SNF:port_forwarding' attribute,
211
  describing port forwarding rules (DNAT) that are applied to vms. The
212 213
  description of such rules is done via the new CYCLADES_PORT_FORWARDING
  setting.
214 215
* Speed up server reconciliation, by performing parallel reconciliation for
  each backend.
216 217
* Change --dhcp option of network management commands from a flag to a boolean
  value, e.g. --dhcp=True
218
* Remove 'ARCHIPELAGO_BACKENDS' setting used to distinguish between backends
219 220
  that hosted only archipelago backends. Instead allocation is based on which
  disk-templates are enabled in each backend.
221
* Implement 'snf-manage server-remove' management command.
222 223 224 225 226 227 228
* Move reconciliation of IP pools from 'reconcile-networks' to
  'reconcile-pools'. The IP pool reconciliation does not reconcile the IP
  pools with Ganeti. Instead it checks if the pool is consistent with the
  IPs that are used by instances.
* Do not automatically release externally reserved IPs if they are released
  from a Ganeti backend. Management of externally reserved IPs must be
  performed from Cyclades with 'network-modify' command.
229 230 231
* Export basic statistics about Cyclades Service from '/admin/stats/detail'
  API endpoint. Access to this endpoint is only allowed to users that belong
  to the Astakos groups that are defined in the 'ADMIN_STATS_PERMITTED_GROUPS'
232
  setting.  Statistics are also available from 'snf-manage stats-cyclades'
233
  management command.
234 235 236
* Support enforcing quota through command 'enforce-resources-cyclades'.
* Remove command 'resource-export-cyclades' subsumed by
  'service-export-cyclades'.
237 238
* Obsolete PUBLIC_USE_POOL setting, since Cyclades manages IP pool for all
  type of networks.
239 240 241 242 243 244 245 246
* Encrypt / decrypt the instance id / hostname in the  stats URL in
  snf-cyclades-app and snf-stats-app, using the 'CYCLADES_STATS_SECRET_KEY'
  and 'STATS_SECRET_KEY' respectively.
* Add support for snf-vncauthproxy-1.5 and the setting
  'CYCLADES_VNCAUTHPROXY_OPTS', which configures the extra options / arguments
  needed by the newer version of snf-vncauthproxy. Support for older versions
  of snf-vncauthproxy has been dropped. See also the upgrade notes for Synnefo
  and snf-vncauthproxy-1.5.
247 248 249
* Remove 'DEFAULT_ROUTING_TABLE' setting. If a link for an IP_LESS_ROUTED
  network is not specified, the link will be uniquely named
  'snf-link-$network_id'.

* Common synnefo 404/500 templates (located in snf-webproject)

521 522
Astakos
-------
523

524
* Redesign of the accounting system (quotaholder) and integration into
525
  Astakos.
526 527 528 529 530 531 532 533 534 535 536 537

  * Simplified the quotaholder model; removed tables Entity and Policy; now
    table Holding contains limit and usage for every holding.
  * Extended table Holding, so that we can keep track of quota for every
    valid combination of holder (e.g. user), resource, and source (e.g. the
    default system or some specific project).
  * Refactored code for issuing and resolving commissions for robustness;
    added a 'force' option to bypass the upper limit check when issuing a
    commission.
  * Simplified syncing to the quotaholder; removed fields from models
    Project and ProjectMembership, previously needed for syncing; removed
    state PROJECT_DEACTIVATED from ProjectMembership.
538 539 540
  * Removed settings ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_URL, ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_TOKEN,
    and ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_POOLSIZE.

541 542 543 544 545 546
* API-related changes:

  * Implemented API calls for quota, resources, and commissions.
  * Moved all API calls under '/account/v1.0'.
  * Implemented the keystone API call POST /tokens under '/identity/v2.0'.

547 548
* Service and resource specification and handling:

549 550 551 552 553 554 555
  * Specified a format for defining services along with the API endpoints
    and the resources they expose. Migrated internal resource name by
    prefixing it with service name (e.g. 'vm' becomes 'cyclades.vm');
    renamed registered service 'pithos+' to 'pithos'.
  * Specified a procedure to register a Synnefo component, its services and
    their resources in astakos and set the resources' default base quota
    limit. Removed resource definitions from settings.
556 557 558 559 560 561 562 563 564 565 566 567 568 569 570 571 572 573 574 575 576
  * Moved service and resource presentation data out of the respective db
    models into a separate file of UI constants.

* Converted the limit on pending applications from a setting to a quotable
  resource. Converted the related user setting to a user-specific base quota
  limit. Deprecated model UserSetting; removed setting
  ASTAKOS_PENDING_APPLICATION_LIMIT.

* Changes in locking strategy:

  * Lock only project's chain for all project operations; lock user before
    syncing to quotaholder.
  * When locking multiple rows (e.g. users or holdings) include an ORDER BY
    clause in the query to impose ordering on locking.

* Changes in views:

  * Replaced custom transaction context with a simple decorator for managing
    transactions and a context 'ExceptionHandler', which logs and suppresses
    exceptions

577 578
* Added fine grain user auth provider's policies.

579
  * Administrator can override default auth provider policies to a specific
580 581 582 583
    user or group of users.
  * Optionally a user can be assigned to a list of groups, based on the
    authentication method he choosed to signup.

584
* Removed explicit handling of SMTP errors on each email delivery. Exceptions
585 586
  are now propagated to base django exception handler.

587 588
* Email used in html/email tempaltes which prompt user to contact for service
  support prompts is now defined in ``CONTACT_EMAIL`` setting introduced in
589 590
  snf-common settings.

591 592 593 594 595
* Improvements in user activation flow

  * User moderation now takes place after the user has verified his email
    address.
  * User model enriched with additional user state fields
596
  * Split activation email from moderation process. Administrator is required
597 598
    to moderate user explicitly using the `user-modify --accept` or
    `user-modify --reject` commands.
599
  * Improved logging throught out user activation procedures.
