Queens Series Release Notes


New Features

  • It is now possible to specify a list of tests for tempest to blacklist when executing using the tempest_test_blacklist list variable.


New Features

  • A new variable, tempest_roles, has been added to the os_tempest role allowing users to define keystone roles to be during tempest testing.

  • The tempest_images data structure for the os_tempest role now expects the values for each image to include name (optionally) and format (the disk format). Also, the optional variable checksum may be used to set the checksum expected for the file in the format <algorithm>:<checksum>.

  • The default location for the image downloads in the os_tempest role set by the tempest_image_dir variable has now been changed to be /opt/cache/files in order to match the default location in nodepool. This improves the reliability of CI testing in OpenStack CI as it will find the file already cached there.

  • A new variable has been introduced into the os_tempest role named tempest_image_downloader. When set to deployment-host (which is the default) it uses the deployment host to handle the download of images to be used for tempest testing. The images are then uploaded to the target host for uploading into Glance.

Deprecation Notes

  • The following variables have been removed from the os_tempest role to simplify it. They have been replaced through the use of the data structure tempest_images which now has equivalent variables per image. - cirros_version - tempest_img_url - tempest_image_file - tempest_img_disk_format - tempest_img_name - tempest_images.sha256 (replaced by checksum)

Bug Fixes

  • The os_tempest tempest role was downloading images twice - once arbitrarily, and once to use for testing. This has been consolidated into a single download to a consistent location.
