v0.15next
=============

Released: UNRELEASED

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

* Replace accumulative projects with pool projects:

  * Projects are now viewed as a source of finite resources. A member can
    reserve a part of these resources up to a specified limit.

  * Base quota are now offered through a special purpose user-specific base
    project, identified with the same UUID as the user.

  * Each actual resource (Cyclades VM, network, floating IP and Pithos
    container) is now also associated with a project besides the owner.

  * In resource creation, project defaults to the user-specific base
    project, if not specified otherwise. It is also possible to change the
    project assignment of an existing resource.

  * All existing resources have been assigned to the respective
    user-specific base projects.

Astakos
-------

* Decouple projects from applications:

  * Support project creation (by the system) and modification (by a
    privileged user) without the need to submit/approve an application.

  * View applications as modifications. When a project is uninitialized
    (e.g. an application for a new project is pending), no further
    modification is allowed.

  * Applications are removed from the API. A project's last application is
    only accessible as part of the project details.

  * Decouple project state from application state; they can be combined by
    an API client, if needed.

* Changes concerning quota and pool projects:

  * A project must provide limits for all registered resources. On project
    activation, resources missing are automatically completed using a
    skeleton.

  * Field `uplimit' of registed resources is exposed as `base_default' and
    provide the skeleton for user-specific base projects. A new field
    `project_default' is introduce to act as a skeleton for conventional
    projects.

  * The quotaholder now also records project quota besides user quota. The
    two types of holders are distinguished with a prefix: `user:' and
    `project:'.

  * The quota API is extended to make project quota available.

* Projects can be set `private', making it accessible only to its owner and
  members.

Released: UNRELEASED

78 79 80 81 82
Synnefo-wide
------------

* Integrate Pithos tests in continuous integration.

83
* Change astakosclient to accept AUTH_URL instead of BASE_URL
84 85 86 87 88 89 90
  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'.
91

92 93 94 95
* 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.

  method) in case of an unexpected request method.

101 102 103 104 105 106 107
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
108 109
    of its `reference' application (current definition). Lock Project rather
    than Chain (the latter is semantically obsolete).
110

111 112 113 114
  * 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'.

115
  * Improve recording of project, application, and membership actions.
116

117 118
* Implement API calls for projects.

119 120 121 122 123 124
* 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.

125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 136 137 138 139
* 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.

140 141 142
* Remove API call GET /account/v1.0/authenticate in favor of
  POST /identity/v2.0/tokens.

143 144 145 146 147 148
* 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.

149 150 151 152 153
* 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

154

166 167 168 169 170 171
	* 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)
172
  * Changed commands:
173 174 175 176
	* 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
177
  * Removed commands:
178 179 180
	* quota
	* resource-import (subsumed by service-import)
	* resource-export-astakos (subsumed by service-export-astakos)
181

Cyclades
--------

185 186 187
* Major changes to Cyclades networks:

  * Implement 'cyclades_network' service, containing the /networks, /ports,
188 189 190
    /subnets and /floatingips API endpoints under '/network/v2.0'. The old
    /networks API of 'cyclades_compute' (under /compute/v2.0) is
    removed.
191 192 193 194 195
  * 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
196 197
    'CYCLADES_DEFAULT_SERVER_NETWORKS' to control the networks that newly
    created servers will be connected.
198 199 200 201 202 203

* 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}'
204
    management commands to handle floating IPs.
205 206
  * Add 'floating_ip_pool' attribute to networks to mark networks that can
    be used as floating IP pools.

  * Implement the 'resize' server action, to change the flavor of a server.
211
    Only 'cpu' and 'memory' resizing is supported.

212 213

* Compute quotas for CPU and memory of running vms.
214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222

  * 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
223
    to.
224 225 226 227 228 229 230

* 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.
231
* Extend servers info API response with 'SNF:fqdn' attribute, and introduce
232 233
  CYCLADES_SERVERS_FQDN to set the template for servers FDQN. Remove
  'UI_VM_HOSTNAME_FORMAT' setting.
234 235 236 237
* 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.
238 239
* Speed up server reconciliation, by performing parallel reconciliation for
  each backend.
240 241
* Change --dhcp option of network management commands from a flag to a boolean
  value, e.g. --dhcp=True
242 243 244
* 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.
245
* Implement 'snf-manage server-remove' management command.
246 247 248 249 250 251 252
* 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.
253 254 255 256 257
* 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.
258 259 260
* Support enforcing quota through command 'enforce-resources-cyclades'.
* Remove command 'resource-export-cyclades' subsumed by
  'service-export-cyclades'.
261 262
* Obsolete PUBLIC_USE_POOL setting, since Cyclades manages IP pool for all
  type of networks.
263 264 265 266 267 268 269 270
* 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.
271 272 273
* 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'.
274 275
* Extend flavors with 'allow_create' attribute. Flavors that have this
  attribute unset cannot be used by users to create new servers.

* Create a JSON-exportable definition document for each Synnefo Components
  (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.

Astakos
-------

550
* Redesign of the accounting system (quotaholder) and integration into
551
  Astakos.
552 553 554 555 556 557 558 559 560 561 562 563

  * 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.
564 565 566
  * Removed settings ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_URL, ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_TOKEN,
    and ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_POOLSIZE.

567 568 569 570 571 572
* 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'.

573 574
* Service and resource specification and handling:

575 576 577 578 579 580 581
  * 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.
582 583 584 585 586 587 588 589 590 591 592 593 594 595 596 597 598 599 600 601 602
  * 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

603 604
* Added fine grain user auth provider's policies.

605
  * Administrator can override default auth provider policies to a specific
606 607 608 609
    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.

610
* Removed explicit handling of SMTP errors on each email delivery. Exceptions
611 612
  are now propagated to base django exception handler.

613 614
* Email used in html/email tempaltes which prompt user to contact for service
  support prompts is now defined in ``CONTACT_EMAIL`` setting introduced in
615 616
  snf-common settings.

617 618 619 620 621
* 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
622
  * Split activation email from moderation process. Administrator is required
623 624
    to moderate user explicitly using the `user-modify --accept` or
    `user-modify --reject` commands.
625
  * Improved logging throught out user activation procedures.
