Ussuri Series Release Notes



The Ussuri release of the python-cinderclient supports Block Storage API version 2 and Block Storage API version 3 through microversion 3.60. (The maximum microversion of the Block Storage API in the Ussuri release is 3.60.)

In addition to the features and bugfixes described below, this release includes some documentation updates.

Note that this release corresponds to a major bump in the version number. See the “Upgrade Notes” section of this document for details.

Please keep in mind that the minimum version of Python supported by this release is Python 3.6.

New Features

  • When communicating with the Block Storage API version 3.60 and higher, you can apply time comparison filtering to the volume list command on the created_at or updated_at fields. Time must be expressed in ISO 8601 format: CCYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss±hh:mm. The ±hh:mm value, if included, returns the time zone as an offset from UTC.

    See the Block Storage service (cinder) command-line client documentation for usage details.

  • New command option --filters is added to transfer-list command to support filtering. The transfer-list command can be used with filters when communicating with the Block Storage API version 3.52 and higher.

Upgrade Notes

  • The --bypass-url command line argument, having been deprecated in version 2.10, was removed in version 4.0.0. It was replaced by the command line argument --os-endpoint for consistency with other OpenStack clients. In this release, the initializer functions for client objects no longer recognize bypass_url as a parameter name. Instead, use os_endpoint. This keeps the cinderclient consistent both internally and with respect to other OpenStack clients.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the os_endpoint was not being passed to the keystone session as the endpoint_override argument.


Upgrade Notes

  • Python 2.7 support has been dropped. Beginning with release 6.0.0, the minimum version of Python supported by python-cinderclient is Python 3.6. The last version of python-cinderclient to support Python 2.7 is the 5.x series from the Train release.
