=========

Released: UNRELEASED

Synnefo-wide
------------

* Integrate Pithos tests in continuous integration.

19
* Change astakosclient to accept AUTH_URL instead of BASE_URL
20 21 22 23 24 25 26
  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'.
27

28 29 30 31
* Add 'mail_admins' handler to 'django.request' logger in order to send email
  notifactions to users listed in 'ADMINS' setting about unhandled exceptions
  in the code.

32 33
* Extend astakosclient to request and validate OAuth 2.0 access tokens

34 35 36 37 38 39 40
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
41 42
    of its `reference' application (current definition). Lock Project rather
    than Chain (the latter is semantically obsolete).
43

44 45 46 47
  * 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'.

48
  * Improve recording of project, application, and membership actions.
49

50 51
* Implement API calls for projects.

52 53 54 55 56 57
* 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.

58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72
* 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.

73 74 75
* Remove API call GET /account/v1.0/authenticate in favor of
  POST /identity/v2.0/tokens.

76 77 78 79 80 81
* 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
  'ASTAKOS_ADMIN_STATS_PERMITTED_GROUPS' setting. Statistics are also availble
  from 'snf-manage stats-astakos' management command.

82 83 84 85 86
* 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

87
* Management commands:
88 89
  * Introduced new commands:
     * component-show
90 91
     * quota-list (replacing quota, supports various filters)
     * quota-verify (replacing quota)
92 93 94
	 * 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)
95 96
  * Changed commands:
     * component-add got options --base-url and --ui-url
97 98 99 100 101 102 103
     * 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
  * Removed commands:
     * quota
     * resource-import (subsumed by service-import)
     * resource-export-astakos (subsumed by service-export-astakos)

* Major changes to Cyclades networks:

  * Implement 'cyclades_network' service, containing the /networks, /ports,
    /subnets and /floatingips API endpoints under '/network/v2.0'.
	The old /networks API of 'cyclades_compute' (under /compute/v2.0) is
	removed.
  * 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
	'CYCLADES_DEFAULT_SERVER_NETWORKS' to control the networks that newly
	created servers will be connected.

* 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}'
	management commands to handle floating IPs.
  * Add 'floating_ip_pool' attribute to networks to mark networks that can
    be used as floating IP pools.

* Implement 'resize' server action.

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

* Compute quotas for CPU and memory of running vms.
137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153

  * 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
	to.

* 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.
154
* Extend servers info API response with 'SNF:fqdn' attribute, and introduce
155 156
  CYCLADES_SERVERS_FQDN to set the template for servers FDQN. Remove
  'UI_VM_HOSTNAME_FORMAT' setting.
157 158 159 160
* Extend servers info API response with 'SNF:port_forwarding' attribute,
  describing port fowarding rules (DNAT) that are applied to vms. The
  description of such rules is done via the new CYCLADES_PORT_FORWARDING
  setting.
161 162
* Speed up server reconciliation, by performing parallel reconciliation for
  each backend.
163 164
* Change --dhcp option of network management commands from a flag to a boolean
  value, e.g. --dhcp=True
165 166 167
* Remove 'ARCHIPELAGO_BACKENDS' setting used to distinquish between backends
  that hosted only archipelago backends. Instead allocation is based on which
  disk-templates are enabled in each backend.
168
* Implement 'snf-manage server-remove' management command.
169 170 171 172 173 174 175
* 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.
176 177 178 179 180
* 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'
  setting.  Statistics are also availble from 'snf-manage stats-cyclades'
  management command.
181 182 183
* Support enforcing quota through command 'enforce-resources-cyclades'.
* Remove command 'resource-export-cyclades' subsumed by
  'service-export-cyclades'.
184 185
* Obsolete PUBLIC_USE_POOL setting, since Cyclades manages IP pool for all
  type of networks.
186 187 188 189 190 191 192 193
* 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.

     * file-show

202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209 210 211 212 213 214
* Change view authentication
  The pithos views do not use the cookie information for user authentication.
  They request (from Astakos) and use a short-term access token for a
  specific resource.

* Remove PITHOS_ASTAKOS_COOKIE_NAME setting, since it is no longer useful

* Add PITHOS_OAUTH2_CLIENT_CREDENTIALS setting to authenticate the views with
  astakos during the resource access token generation procedure

* Add PITHOS_SERVE_API_DOMAIN setting to restrict file serving endpoints to a
  specific host

215 216 217 218
* Refactor metadata schema (table attributes) in Pithos DB to speedup current
objects by domain attribute. This is used by Plankton for listing VM images.

* Enforce container-level atomicity in (most) Pithos API calls.
219

220 221
* Remove command 'resource-export-pithos' subsumed by 'service-export-pithos'.

  (Astakos, Cyclades, Pithos, etc.) that consolidates APIs (services),
  resources, and other standardized properties (e.g. default URL prefixes).

* Standardize URLs for Synnefo Components, impose structure and naming
  conventions to related settings. Make each component deployable under
  a user-configurable <COMPONENT>_BASE_URL. Each API (compute, image, etc.)
  is deployable under a developer-configurable prefix beneath BASE_URL.

411
  Astakos.
412 413 414 415 416 417 418 419 420 421 422 423

  * 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.
424 425 426
  * Removed settings ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_URL, ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_TOKEN,
    and ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_POOLSIZE.

427 428 429 430 431 432
* 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'.

433 434
* Service and resource specification and handling:

435 436 437 438 439 440 441
  * 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.
442 443 444 445 446 447 448 449 450 451 452 453 454 455 456 457 458 459 460 461 462
  * 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

463 464 465 466 467 468 469 470 471 472
* Added fine grain user auth provider's policies.

  * Administrator can override default auth provider policies to a specific 
    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.

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

473 474 475 476
* Email used in html/email tempaltes which prompt user to contact for service 
  support prompts is now defined in ``CONTACT_EMAIL`` setting introduced in 
  snf-common settings.

477 478 479 480 481 482 483 484
* 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
  * Split activation email from moderation process. Administrator is required 
    to moderate user explicitly using the `user-modify --accept` or
    `user-modify --reject` commands.
485
  * Improved logging throught out user activation procedures.

In v0.13 the code was very heavily refactored for increased uniformity since
most of the Synnefo components have been merged into a single repository. Thus,
**just for this version** we will not document a complete Changelog (features,
fixes, improvements, issues, setting changes), but rather just copy from the
`NEWS` file with minor additions wherever needed.

* Support for pooling throughout Synnefo

  * Pooled Django DB connections, Pithos backend connections, HTTP
    connections using single `objpool` package

  * support automatic Python and Debian package builds for individual commits

  uniformity (in progress)
* Deployment: Standardize on gunicorn, with gevent-based workers
  and use of Green threads throughout Synnefo

  for mass Synnefo deployments
