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

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

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

* Integrate Pithos tests in continuous integration.

43
* Change astakosclient to accept AUTH_URL instead of BASE_URL
44 45 46 47 48 49 50
  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'.

52 53 54 55
* 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.

56 57
* Extend astakosclient to request and validate OAuth 2.0 access tokens

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

61 62 63 64 65 66 67
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
68 69
    of its `reference' application (current definition). Lock Project rather
    than Chain (the latter is semantically obsolete).
70

71 72 73 74
  * 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'.

75
  * Improve recording of project, application, and membership actions.
76

77 78
* Implement API calls for projects.

79 80 81 82 83 84
* 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.

85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99
* 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.

100 101 102
* Remove API call GET /account/v1.0/authenticate in favor of
  POST /identity/v2.0/tokens.

103 104 105 106 107 108
* 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.

109 110 111 112 113
* 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

114
* **Shibboleth module** Extract unique identifier from the

  third party authentication provider.

123
* Management commands:
124

125
  * Introduced new commands:
126 127 128 129 130 131
	* 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)
132
  * Changed commands:
133 134 135 136
	* 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
137
  * Removed commands:
138 139 140
	* quota
	* resource-import (subsumed by service-import)
	* resource-export-astakos (subsumed by service-export-astakos)
141

142 143 144
Cyclades
--------

145 146 147
* Major changes to Cyclades networks:

  * Implement 'cyclades_network' service, containing the /networks, /ports,
148 149 150
    /subnets and /floatingips API endpoints under '/network/v2.0'. The old
    /networks API of 'cyclades_compute' (under /compute/v2.0) is
    removed.
151 152 153 154 155
  * 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
156 157
    'CYCLADES_DEFAULT_SERVER_NETWORKS' to control the networks that newly
    created servers will be connected.
158 159 160 161 162 163

* 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}'
164
    management commands to handle floating IPs.
165 166
  * 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.
171
    Only 'cpu' and 'memory' resizing is supported.
Christos Stavrakakis's avatar

172 173

* Compute quotas for CPU and memory of running vms.
174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181 182

  * 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
183
    to.
184 185 186 187 188 189 190

* 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.
191
* Extend servers info API response with 'SNF:fqdn' attribute, and introduce
192 193
  CYCLADES_SERVERS_FQDN to set the template for servers FDQN. Remove
  'UI_VM_HOSTNAME_FORMAT' setting.
194 195 196 197
* 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.
198 199
* Speed up server reconciliation, by performing parallel reconciliation for
  each backend.
200 201
* Change --dhcp option of network management commands from a flag to a boolean
  value, e.g. --dhcp=True
202 203 204
* 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.
205
* Implement 'snf-manage server-remove' management command.
206 207 208 209 210 211 212
* 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.
213 214 215 216 217
* 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.
218 219 220
* Support enforcing quota through command 'enforce-resources-cyclades'.
* Remove command 'resource-export-cyclades' subsumed by
  'service-export-cyclades'.
221 222
* Obsolete PUBLIC_USE_POOL setting, since Cyclades manages IP pool for all
  type of networks.
223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230
* 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.
231 232 233
* 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'.
234 235
* Extend flavors with 'allow_create' attribute. Flavors that have this
  attribute unset cannot be used by users to create new servers.

  * 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.
524 525 526
  * Removed settings ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_URL, ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_TOKEN,
    and ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_POOLSIZE.

527 528 529 530 531 532
* 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'.

533 534
* Service and resource specification and handling:

535 536 537 538 539 540 541
  * 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.
542 543 544 545 546 547 548 549 550 551 552 553 554 555 556 557 558 559 560 561 562
  * 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

563 564
* Added fine grain user auth provider's policies.

565
  * Administrator can override default auth provider policies to a specific
566 567 568 569
    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.

570
* Removed explicit handling of SMTP errors on each email delivery. Exceptions
571 572
  are now propagated to base django exception handler.

573 574
* Email used in html/email tempaltes which prompt user to contact for service
  support prompts is now defined in ``CONTACT_EMAIL`` setting introduced in
575 576
  snf-common settings.

577 578 579 580 581
* 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
582
  * Split activation email from moderation process. Administrator is required
583 584
    to moderate user explicitly using the `user-modify --accept` or
    `user-modify --reject` commands.
585
  * Improved logging throught out user activation procedures.
