|Dev cycle||25 days|
This release, as well as all previous ones, includes a lot of internal and external changes. Most important of them are listed below.
[Modified] Option ‘–tempest-config’ for ‘rally verify reinstall’ command was deprecated for removal.
[Removed] Option –system-wide-install was removed from rally verify commands in favor of –system-wide option.
[Modified] Step of installation of Tempest during execution of the rally verify start command was deprecated and will be removed in the future. Please use rally verify install instead.
Rework commands.task.TaskCommands.detailed. Now output of the command contains the same results as in HTML report.
Re-run failed Tempest tests
Add the ability to re-run the tempest tests that failed in the last test execution. Sometimes Tempest tests fail due to a special temporary condition in the environment, in such cases it is very useful to be able to re-execute those tests.
Running the following command will re-run all the test that failed during the last test execution regardless of what test suite was run.
rally verify start --failing
Specs & Feature Requests¶
[updated] Fix flavor for cloudera manager
Cloudera manager need master-node flavor
[added] Add more Nova API scenarios
Add support for listing nova hosts, agents, availability-zones and aggregates.
[updated] Make sure VolumeGenerator uses the api version info while cleanup
Designate V2 - Add recordset scenarios
Add create_and_(list|delete)_recordset scenarios Remove the test also that checks the allowed methods, this is in order for us to be able to have a private method _walk_pages that will do fetching of pages for us vs attempting to fetch 1 giant list at once.
unify *_kwargs name in scenarios
When running a scenario, kwargs is used as default key-word arguments. But in some scenarios, there are more and one services being called, and we use xxx_kwargs for this case.
However, some xxx_kwargs are not unified for same usage. Unifying these could avoid misleading for end users. Another improvement is to add xxx_kwargs with empty settings for scenario config files.
Deprecated arguments ‘script’ and ‘interpreter’ were removed in favor of ‘command’ argument.
VM task scenarios executes a script with a interpreter provided through a formatted argument called ‘command’ which expects the remote_path or local_path of the script and optionally an interpreter with which the script has to be executed.
Avoid using len(x) to check if x is empty
This cases are using len() to check if collection has items. As collections have a boolean representation too, directly check for true / false. And fix the wrong mock in its unit test.
Fix install_rally.sh to get it to work on MacOSX
On MacOSX, mktemp requires being passed a template. This change modifies the calls to mktemp to explicitly pass a template so that the code works on both MacOSX and linux.
Use new-style Python classes
There are some classes in the code that didn’t inherited from nothing and this is an old-style classes. A “New Class” is the recommended way to create a class in modern Python.A “New Class” should always inherit from object or another new-style class.
Hacking rule added as well.
Make Rally cope with unversioned keystone URL
With the change, the client version that’s returned is now determined by the keystoneclient library itself based on whether you supply a URL with a version in it or not.
Fix rally-mos job to work with mos-8.0
Also remove hardcoded values for some other jobs.
Add name() to ResourceManager
This will allow us to perform cleanup based on the name.
Add task_id argument to name_matches_object
This will be used to ensure that we are only deleting resources for a particular Rally task.
Extend api.Task.get_detailed with ability to return task data as dict with extended results.
The most critical fixed bugs are:
#1547624: Wrong configuration for baremetal(ironic) tempest tests
#1536800: openrc values are not quoted
The openrc file created after rally deployment –fromenv did not quote the values for environment variables that will be exported.
#1509027: Heat delete_stack never exits if status is DELETE_FAILED
#1540545: Refactored atomic action in authenticate scenario
#1469897: Incompatible with Keystone v3 argument in service create scenario
#1550262: Different results in
rally task detailed,

rally task statuscommands.
#1553024: Backward incompatible change in neutronclient(release 4.1.0) broke Tempest config generation to support latest neutronclient.
