Stein Series Release Notes¶
When creating a lease using the CLI client, the default value for start date was changed to use the string ‘now’, which is resolved to the current time on the server rather than on the client. Note that if the request is sent at the end of a minute and interpreted by the service at the beginning of the next minute, this can result in leases that are one minute shorter than what the user might expect, as the end date is still specified by the client. Users who care about the exact timing of their leases should explicitly specify both start and end dates.
Creating a lease using the CLI client without specifying a start date no longer fails if the request is sent to the Blazar service just before the end of a minute. For more details, see bug 1783296.
