Mitaka Series Release Notes¶
Added new functionality for showing and listing stack outputs without resolving all outputs during stack initialisation.
Added new API calls for showing and listing stack outputs
Added using of new API in python-heatclient for
output_list. Now, if version of Heat API is 1.19 or above, Heat client will use API calls
output_listinstead of parsing of stack get response. If version of Heat API is lower than 1.19, outputs resolve in Heat client as well as before.
OS::Barbican::GenericContainerresource for storing arbitrary Barbican secrets.
OS::Barbican::RSAContainerresource for storing RSA public keys, private keys, and private key pass phrases.
OS::Barbican::CertificateContainerresource for storing the secrets that are relevant to certificates.
OS::Nova::HostAggregate resource plugin is added to support host aggregate, which is provided by nova
nova.host constraint is added to support to validate host attribute which is provided by Nova
OS::Neutron::QoSPolicy resource plugin is added to support QoS policy, which is provided by Neutron
OS::Neutron::QoSBandwidthLimitRule resource plugin is added to support Neutron QoS bandwidth limit rule, which is provided by Neutron
qos_policyoptional property, that will associate with QoS policy to offer different service levels based on the policy rules.
OS::Neutron::RBACPolicy resource plugin is added to support RBAC policy, which is used to manage RBAC policy in Neutron. This resource creates and manages Neutron RBAC policy, which allows to share Neutron networks to subsets of tenants.
Added a new
event-sinkselement to the environment which allows specifying a target where events from the stack are sent. It supports the
zaqar-queueelement for now.
Adds a new “immutable” boolean field to the parameters section in a HOT template. This gives template authors the ability to mark template parameters as immutable to restrict updating parameters which have destructive effects on the application. A value of True results in the engine rejecting stack-updates that include changes to that parameter. When not specified in the template, “immutable” defaults to False to ensure backwards compatibility with old templates.
OS::Keystone::Regionresource that helps in managing the lifecycle of Keystone region.
OS::Neutron:AddressScoperesource that helps in managing the lifecycle of Neutron address scope. Availability of this resource depends on availability of Neutron
address-scopeAPI extension. This resource can be associated with multiple subnet pools in a one-to-many relationship. The subnet pools under an address scope must not overlap.
New resources for Neutron Load Balancer version 2. These are unique for version 2 and do not support or mix with existing version 1 resources.
OS::Neutron::LBaaS::LoadBalanceris added to create and manage Load Balancers which allow traffic to be directed between servers.
OS::Neutron::LBaaS::Listeneris added to create and manage Listeners which represent a listening endpoint for the Load Balancer.
OS::Neutron::LBaaS::Poolis added to create and manage Pools which represent a group of nodes. Pools define the subnet where nodes reside, the balancing algorithm, and the nodes themselves.
OS::Neutron::LBaaS::PoolMemberis added to create and manage Pool members which represent a single backend node.
OS::Neutron::LBaaS::HealthMonitoris added to create and manage Health Monitors which watch status of the Load Balanced servers.
A stack can be searched for resources based on their name, status, type, action, id and physical_resource_id. And this feature is enabled both in REST API and CLI. For more details, please refer orchestration API document and Heat CLI user guide.
Adds a new feature to restrict update or replace of a resource when a stack is being updated. Template authors can set
resource_registryin an environment file to restrict update or replace.
OS::Senlin::Clusteris added to create a cluster in Senlin. A cluster is a group of homogeneous nodes.
OS::Senlin::Nodeis added to create a node in Senlin. Node represents a physical object exposed by other OpenStack services.
OS::Senlin::Receiveris added to create a receiver in Senlin. Receiver can be used to hook the engine to some external event/alarm sources.
OS::Senlin::Profileis added to create a profile in Senlin. Profile is a module used for creating nodes, it’s the definition of a node.
OS::Senlin::Policyis added to create a policy in Senlin. Policy is a set of rules that can be checked and/or enforced when an Action is performed on a Cluster.
The OS::Nova::Server now supports a new property user_data_update_policy, which may be set to either ‘REPLACE’ (default) or ‘IGNORE’ if you wish to allow user_data updates to be ignored on stack update. This is useful when managing a group of servers where changed user_data should apply to new servers without replacing existing servers.
Multiple environment files may be passed to the server in the files dictionary along with an ordered list of the environment file names. The server will generate the stack’s environment from the provided files rather than requiring the client to merge the environments together. This is optional; the existing interface to pass in the already resolved environment is still present.
OS::Neutron:SubnetPoolresource that helps in managing the lifecycle of Neutron subnet pool. Availability of this resource depends on availability of neutron
subnetpooloptional property, that will automate the allocation of CIDR for the subnet from the specified subnet pool.
Template validation is improved to ignore the given set of error codes. For example, Heat will report template as invalid one, if it does not find any required OpenStack services in the cloud deployment and while authoring the template, user might wants to avoid such scenarios, so that (s)he could create valid template without bothering about run-time environments. Please refer the API documentation of validate template for more details.
If upgrading with pre-Icehouse stacks which contain resources that create users (such as OS::Nova::Server, OS::Heat::SoftwareDeployment, and OS::Heat::WaitConditionHandle), it is possible that the users will not be removed upon stack deletion due to the removal of a legacy fallback code path. In such a situation, these users will require manual removal.
