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.

22
  * Base quota are now offered through a special purpose user-specific system
23 24 25 26 27
    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.

28
  * In resource creation, project defaults to the user-specific system
29 30 31 32
    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
33
    user-specific system projects.
34

35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43
* Logging mechanism for Synnefo management commands

  * Log all stdout and stderr output of every invocation of snf-manage,
    on unique filenames under a given directory.

  * Add a new setting in the snf-common package, namely 'LOG_DIR', which
    specifies the directory to be used by Synnefo components to write
    their log files.

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.

68 69
  * Field `uplimit' of registed resources is exposed as `system_default' and
    provide the skeleton for user-specific system projects. A new field
70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78
    `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.

79 80 81
  * Removed setting `ASTAKOS_PROJECTS_VISIBLE'; we now always display
    projects in Astakos menu.

82 83 84
* Projects can be set `private', making it accessible only to its owner and
  members.

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

* Integrate Pithos tests in continuous integration.

184
* Change astakosclient to accept AUTH_URL instead of BASE_URL
185 186 187 188 189 190 191
  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'.

  method) in case of an unexpected request method.

202 203 204 205 206 207 208
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
209 210
    of its `reference' application (current definition). Lock Project rather
    than Chain (the latter is semantically obsolete).
211

212 213 214 215
  * 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'.

216
  * Improve recording of project, application, and membership actions.
217

218
* Implement API calls for projects.
219 220 221 222 223
* 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.
224 225 226 227 228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235 236 237 238
* 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.

239 240
* Remove API call GET /account/v1.0/authenticate in favor of
  POST /identity/v2.0/tokens.
241
* Export basic statistics about Astakos service at the '/admin/stats/detail' API
242 243
  endpoint. Access to this endpoint is only allowed to users that belong to
  the Astakos groups that are defined in the
244
  'ASTAKOS_ADMIN_STATS_PERMITTED_GROUPS' setting. Statistics are also available
245
  through the 'snf-manage stats-astakos' management command.
246 247 248
* 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
249
* **Shibboleth module** Extract unique identifier from the

  ``REMOTE_USER`` header.
251 252
* Automatically fill third-party signup form fields when available by the
  the third-party provider.
253
* Management commands:
254

255
  * Introduced new commands:
256 257 258 259 260 261 262 263

    * 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)

264
  * Changed commands:
265 266 267 268 269 270

    * 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

271
  * Removed commands:
272 273 274 275 276 277 278 279 280

    * quota
    * resource-import (subsumed by service-import)
    * resource-export-astakos (subsumed by service-export-astakos)

* Fix request authorization code failures due to Unicode issue:
  https://code.grnet.gr/issues/4971
* Omit validation issues for non-required metadata values received from the
  third-party authentication provider.
281

282 283 284
Cyclades
--------

285 286 287
* Major changes to Cyclades networks:

  * Implement 'cyclades_network' service, containing the /networks, /ports,
288 289 290
    /subnets and /floatingips API endpoints under '/network/v2.0'. The old
    /networks API of 'cyclades_compute' (under /compute/v2.0) is
    removed.
291 292 293 294 295
  * 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
296 297
    'CYCLADES_DEFAULT_SERVER_NETWORKS' to control the networks that newly
    created servers will be connected.
298 299 300 301 302 303

* 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}'
304
    management commands to handle floating IPs.
305 306
  * Add 'floating_ip_pool' attribute to networks to mark networks that can
    be used as floating IP pools.

307 308 309 310

* Implement 'resize' server action.

  * Implement the 'resize' server action, to change the flavor of a server.
311
    Only 'cpu' and 'memory' resizing is supported.
Christos Stavrakakis's avatar
Christos Stavrakakis committed
312

313
* Compute quotas for CPU and memory of running VMs.
314 315 316 317 318 319 320 321 322

  * 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
323
    to.
324 325 326 327 328 329 330

* 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.
331
* Extend servers info API response with 'SNF:fqdn' attribute, and introduce
332 333
  CYCLADES_SERVERS_FQDN to set the template for servers FDQN. Remove
  'UI_VM_HOSTNAME_FORMAT' setting.
334
* Extend servers info API response with 'SNF:port_forwarding' attribute,
335
  describing port forwarding rules (DNAT) that are applied to vms. The
336 337
  description of such rules is done via the new CYCLADES_PORT_FORWARDING
  setting.
338 339
* Speed up server reconciliation, by performing parallel reconciliation for
  each backend.
340 341
* Change --dhcp option of network management commands from a flag to a boolean
  value, e.g. --dhcp=True
342
* Remove 'ARCHIPELAGO_BACKENDS' setting used to distinguish between backends
343 344
  that hosted only archipelago backends. Instead allocation is based on which
  disk-templates are enabled in each backend.
345
* Implement 'snf-manage server-remove' management command.
346 347 348 349 350 351 352
* 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.
353
* Export basic statistics about Cyclades Service at the '/admin/stats/detail'
354 355
  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'
356
  setting.  Statistics are also available through the 'snf-manage stats-cyclades'
357
  management command.
358 359 360
* Support enforcing quota through command 'enforce-resources-cyclades'.
* Remove command 'resource-export-cyclades' subsumed by
  'service-export-cyclades'.
361 362
* Obsolete PUBLIC_USE_POOL setting, since Cyclades manages IP pool for all
  type of networks.
363 364 365 366 367 368 369 370
* 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.
371 372 373
* 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'.
374 375
* Extend flavors with 'allow_create' attribute. Flavors that have this
  attribute unset cannot be used by users to create new servers.
376 377 378 379 380
* Store each image property(metadata) as a separate Pithos metadata and check
  that the size of each property is valid.
* Fix a few occurrences of HTTP 500 errors being triggered due to insufficient
  validation of incoming requests in the Network API
* Speed up some API calls by fixing the relevant DB queries

668
  Astakos.
669 670 671 672 673 674 675 676 677 678 679 680

  * 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.
681 682 683
  * Removed settings ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_URL, ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_TOKEN,
    and ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_POOLSIZE.

684 685 686 687 688 689
* 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'.

690 691
* Service and resource specification and handling:

692 693 694 695 696 697 698
  * 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.
699 700 701 702 703 704 705 706 707 708 709 710 711 712 713 714 715 716 717 718 719
  * 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

720 721
* Added fine grain user auth provider's policies.

722
  * Administrator can override default auth provider policies to a specific
723 724 725 726
    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.

727
* Removed explicit handling of SMTP errors on each email delivery. Exceptions
728 729
  are now propagated to base django exception handler.

730 731
* Email used in html/email tempaltes which prompt user to contact for service
  support prompts is now defined in ``CONTACT_EMAIL`` setting introduced in
732 733
  snf-common settings.

734 735 736 737 738
* 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
739
  * Split activation email from moderation process. Administrator is required
740 741
    to moderate user explicitly using the `user-modify --accept` or
    `user-modify --reject` commands.
742
  * Improved logging throught out user activation procedures.
