=========

Released: UNRELEASED

14 15 16 17 18
Synnefo-wide
------------

* Integrate Pithos tests in continuous integration.

19 20 21 22 23 24 25
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
26 27
    of its `reference' application (current definition). Lock Project rather
    than Chain (the latter is semantically obsolete).
28

29
  * Improve recording of project, application, and membership actions.
30

31 32
* Implement API calls for projects.

33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42
* 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.

* Management commands:
  * Changed commands:
     * component-add got options --base-url and --ui-url

  added and removed to a running server.

  * Implement the 'os-floating-ips' and 'os-floating-ip-pools' API extensions.
  * Implement 'snf-manage floating-ip-list' management command.
  * Add 'floating_ip_pool' attribute to networks. Such networks must exist to
    all Ganeti backends.

* Speed up server reconciliation, by performing parallel reconciliation for
  each backend.
* Implement IPv6 only networks.
* 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.
63
* Obsolete PUBLIC_USE_POOL setting, since Cyclades manages IP pool for all

  type of networks.
65
* Extend servers info API response with 'SNF:fqdn' attribute, and introduce
66
  CYCLADES_SERVERS_FQDN to set the template for servers FDQN.
67 68 69 70
* 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.
71 72
* Change --dhcp option of network management commands from a flag to a boolean
  value, e.g. --dhcp=True
73 74 75
* 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.
76

77 78 79 80 81 82 83
Pithos
------

* 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.

* 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.

-------
211

212
* Redesign of the accounting system (quotaholder) and integration into
213
  Astakos.
214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225

  * 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.
226 227 228
  * Removed settings ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_URL, ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_TOKEN,
    and ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_POOLSIZE.

229 230 231 232 233 234
* 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'.

235 236
* Service and resource specification and handling:

237 238 239 240 241 242 243
  * 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.
244 245 246 247 248 249 250 251 252 253 254 255 256 257 258 259 260 261 262 263 264
  * 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

265 266 267 268 269 270 271 272 273 274
* 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.

275 276 277 278
* 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.

279 280 281 282 283 284 285 286
* 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.
287
  * Improved logging throught out user activation procedures.

  location.

  access available Synnefo services API's.
