Xena Series Release Notes


Bug Fixes

  • Honor hidden parameter in get stack environment API. Now values passed to hidden parameters are replaced by ‘**’, similarly to the other APIs such as show stack details API.



Add the ability to specify extra_properties for Glance images. This is useful for example when using secure boot and are required to have specific properties defined on the Glance images.

New Features

  • Add availabilty_zone parameter to OS::Octavia::LoadBalancer

  • extra_properties key added to the OS::Glance::WebImage type. This parameter takes a map value such as ‘{“hw_firmware_type”: “uefi”, “os_secure_boot”: “required”}’

Upgrade Notes

  • The default value of [oslo_policy] policy_file config option has been changed from policy.json to policy.yaml. Operators who are utilizing customized or previously generated static policy JSON files (which are not needed by default), should generate new policy files or convert them in YAML format. Use the oslopolicy-convert-json-to-yaml tool to convert a JSON to YAML formatted policy file in backward compatible way.

  • Support for Block Storage API v2 has been removed.

Deprecation Notes

  • Use of JSON policy files was deprecated by the oslo.policy library during the Victoria development cycle. As a result, this deprecation is being noted in the Xena cycle with an anticipated future removal of support by oslo.policy. As such operators will need to convert to YAML policy files. Please see the upgrade notes for details on migration of any custom policy files.

Bug Fixes

  • Now the [DEFAULT] shared_services_types option includes volumev3 service type by default.
