  • The deprecated parameters cinder::use_ssl, cinder::cert_file, cinder::key_file and cinder::ca_file is removed. You should now set them in the cinder::api class.

  • The deprecated parameter cinder::api::validation_options is removed.

  • The deprecated parameter netapp_eseries_host_type in cinder::backend::netapp is removed. Please use netapp_host_type instead.

Upgrade Notes

  • Deprecated keystone::authtoken::revocation_cache_time option has been removed.

Deprecation Notes

  • The nova_catalog_admin_info parameter was deprecated from cinder and is no longer being used in the cinder code-base. So, the parameter with the same name in the api.pp manifest was set as deprecated as well.

  • auth_uri is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Please use www_authenticate_uri instead.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes bug 1753596 so the backend_host option is set in each cinder-volume backend driver’s section, and not in the DEFAULT section where the option isn’t relevant.

  • Fixes bug 1758133 to use the new driver path for Dell EMC PS Driver.

  • Fixes bug 1758145 to ignore the excluded_domain_ip Dell EMC SC Driver when blank.

Other Notes

  • A previous deprecation notice stated the host option was deprecated in favor of the backend_host option. This was misleading because the note failed to clarify this only applied to options in the cinder-volume backend driver sections. In the DEFAULT section, the host option is not deprecated, and the backend_host option isn’t relevant.

  • Remove deprecated cinder::backup::backup_topic option.
