Queens Series (6.1.0 - 7.2.x) Release Notes¶
Fixes insufficient input filtering when looking up a node by information from the introspection data. It could potentially allow SQL injections via the
/v1/continueAPI endpoint. See story 2005678 for details.
Fix starting inspection of node having IPv6 BMC address. Inspection could not be initiated because v6 address was being considered as a hostname. Thus resolving incorrect hostname ended up with blocking error.
set-attributeintrospection rule action to accept
Noneas value for a property.
A new rootwrap filter is now included to allow control of the systemd dnsmasq service used by ironic-inspector. This fixes a permission issue when systemctl commands are used as
dnsmasq_stop_commandin the configuration for the dnsmasq pxe filter. See bug 2002818.
The filter uses the systemd service name used by the RDO distrubution (
Fixes issue that can result in introspection failure when a network switch sends incomplete information for LLDP switch_id or port_id. The validation expects these fields when a port is updated, this fix now handles the validation exception.
dnsmasqPXE filter no longer whitelists the MAC addresses of ports deleted from the Bare Metal service. Instead they are blacklisted unless introspection is active or the
node_not_found_hookis set in the configuration. This ensures that no previously enrolled node accidentally boot the inspection image when no node introspection is active. Bug #2001979.
Adds wildcard ignore entry to
dnsmasqPXE filter. When node introspection is active, or if
node_not_found_hookis set in the configuration the ignore is removed from the wildcard entry. This ensures that unknown nodes do not accidentally boot into the introspection image when no node introspection is active.
dnsmasqPXE filter driver feature parity with the
iptablesPXE filter driver, which uses a firewall rule to block any DHCP request on the interface where Ironic Inspector’s DHCP server is listening.
Adds dependency on the retrying python library.
Fixes bug in which the
switch_idfield in a port’s
local_link_connectioncan be set to a non-MAC address if the processed LLDP has a value other than a MAC address for
ChassisID. The bare metal API requires the
switch_idfield to be a MAC address, and will return an error otherwise. See bug 1748022 for details.
Ironic introspection no longer tries to access the Identity service if the
auth_strategyoption is set to
auth_typeoption is not set to
The periodic PXE filter update task now retries fetching port list from the Bare Metal service 5 times (with 1 second delay) before giving up. This ensures that a temporary networking glitch will not result in the ironic-inspector service stopping.
Several configuration options related to ironic API access are deprecated and will be removed in the Rocky release. These include:
noneto access ironic API in noauth mode
[ironic]/endpoint_overrideoption to set specific ironic API endpoint address if discovery of ironic API endpoint is not desired or impossible (for example in standalone mode)
[ironic]/valid_interfacesoption to set ironic endpoint types that will be attempted to be used
Several configuration options related to swift API access are deprecated and will be removed in Rocky release. These include:
