Xena Series Release Notes


New Features

  • The following parameter and class have been added, to support usage of the service token feature with the Barbican key manager.

    • The glance::key_manager::barbican::send_service_user_token parameter

    • The glance::key_manager::barbican::service_user class

  • The glance::cache::cleaner class and the glance::cache::pruner class now support the maxdelay parameter. This parameter would be useful in a multi-node deployment, to avoid launching the same cron command at the same time in multiple nodes.

Distributions that are used to defining the lock_path with a distribution specific config file may need to override the default glance::api::lock_path value.
