Yoga Series Release Notes


Bug Fixes

  • Fixes an issue where ironic-ui could fail when starting the Baremetal Service’s API client when a user’s authentication provider does not immediately support returning a project_id. The remote Baremetal API service will retrieve this value from the Identity service.


Upgrade Notes

  • Python 2.7 support has been dropped. Last release of ironic-ui to support Python 2.7 is OpenStack Train. The minimum version of Python now supported by ironic-ui is Python 3.6.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed _construct_http_client() takes at least 1 argument when creating an ironic client instance.


New Features

  • Adds support for selecting driver interfaces for dynamic drivers while creating nodes. The support for driver interfaces is not compatible with classic drivers. This feature is supported with Pike and further versions of ironic.

  • Adds support for injecting non-maskable interrupts into a node. A new action Inject NMI has been added to the node actions dropdown menu in the Node Details page.


New Features

  • Support has been added for starting, stopping, and accessing the console associated with a node.

  • The action dropdown menu in the node-details panel has a new item Enable|Disable console.

  • The node-details/overview panel has a new Console info item in the General section. The value of this field is dependent on the console type.

    For shellinabox, the value is an anchor with the URL required to access the web console and title shellinabox. For others, the value is a string representation of the console_info object returned by the get_console api call.

  • The Node Details/Configuration tab now shows the node’s boot device.

  • Adds the ability to view and edit the node’s resource_class field on the node-details/configuration page.

  • Adds support for a user to be able to edit the resource_class field when enrolling/updating a node.

  • Adds support for editing portgroups from the node-details/configuration page. Each entry in the portgroups table has an associated Edit portgroup button that when clicked will launch a modal dialog that guides the user in making changes.

  • A backend mock has been added that enables better unit testing of the ironic-ui application by mocking the ironic API service. The mock utilizes angular $httpbackend handlers to intercept requests targeted at the ironic-ui server-side REST endpoints, and returns simulated responses.

    A number of unit tests have been developed that illustrate the use of the backend mock functionality.

    Although the backend mock is a work in progress, enough functionality already exists to support test development for the current set of in-progress features.

  • Adds support for viewing and managing the portgroups associated with an ironic node.

    A portgroup table has been added to the node-details/configuration tab.

    Each row in the table displays a single portgroup, and has column entries for its UUID, MAC address, name, and number of ports. A dropdown menu is also provided that contains actions that can be applied to the portgroup.

    Detailed information for a portgroup is obtained by clicking the detail-toggle-selector (right-chevron) located in its table row. The additional information is displayed in a row expansion.

  • The port table in node-details/configuration tab has been modified as follows:

    • A column has been added that displays the UUID of the portgroup to which the port belongs.

    • The Properties column has been replaced with a column that displays only the boolean value of the pxe_enabled property.

    • Additional properties are displayed by clicking the detail-toggle-selector for that port in a similar manner to the portgroup table.


New Features

  • Support has been added for inspecting nodes. For a node that is in the manageable state, its action menu will include an Inspect button. Node action menus are located in the node-list and node-detail pages.

  • The current cleaning step is displayed in the Provisioning Status section of the node-details/overview page

  • The user is now able to abort a node cleaning operation. When cleaning is aborted the node is moved from the CLEAN WAIT state to the CLEAN FAIL state. When appropriate an “Abort cleaning” action will be present in individual node action menu.

  • The node-details/configuration page has been extended to enable the user to edit ports after initial creation.

  • The user is now able to specify the pxe_enabled and local-link-connection attributes as part of defining/editing ports.



This release adds support for editing nodes and moving those nodes between enroll, manageable, available and active states. It is now possible to enroll a node without all required fields for moving to manageable state being present due to the facility for editing the node once it has been created.

New Features

  • Edit nodes after creation

  • Move nodes between enroll, manageable, available and active states

  • Ability to enroll a node without all required fields for other states



This release adds support for adding and deleting nodes. Support has also been added for adding and deleting ports. The panel will now be hidden if the baremetal service is not present in the scenario where the collection of running services differs between multiple keystone regions.

New Features

  • Add and delete nodes

  • Add and delete ports

  • Panel hidden if baremetal service or admin rights are not present

  • UX improvements across the interface

  • Breadcrumbs have been added

Known Issues

  • Currently it is not possible to edit a node via the UI once it has been enrolled. Therefore, the enrollment must be done accurately to ensure the node is enrolled accurately and can then be made available. At present, any errors made during enrollment can only be corrected by deleting the node and enrolling it again.
