Stein Series Release Notes


New Features

  • Allow metric_dimensions filter to filter on multiple dimension values, on alarms count endpoint (IE metric_dimension=hostname:host1|host2). This brings the query parameters into parity between the alarms list and alarms count endpoints. This also restores functionality that was available on the deprecated java api.


New Features

  • Added new tool monasca-status upgrade check. New framework for monasca-status upgrade check command is added. This framework allows adding various checks which can be run before a Monasca upgrade to ensure if the upgrade can be performed safely.

  • User can configure Cassandra cluster port via configuration option. Default value for port number is 9042.

Upgrade Notes

  • Operator can now use new CLI tool monasca-status upgrade check to check if the Monasca deployment can be safely upgraded from N-1 to N release.

  • agent_authorized_roles default value changed to monasca-agent to be consistent with rest of Monasca, was configured by default to agent so old policy configuration should be checked and adjusted accordingly.

  • Deprecated configuration option database.url has been removed. Please use database.connection instead.

  • The concept of built-in monasca-notification plugins has been removed and the built-in plugins are no longer pre-populated in the database. If you were using the PAGERDUTY, EMAIL or WEBHOOK notification plugin you should explicitly enable it in the monasca-notification config file.

Deprecation Notes

  • Configuration file path /etc/monasca/api-config.conf and /etc/monasca/api.conf are deprecated. Use the standard path /etc/monasca/monasca-api.conf or the configuration dir (supported via oslo.config) /etc/monasca/monasca-api.conf.d/any_config_name.conf
