Software Delivery Automation CD/RO v10.2

CloudBees is pleased to announce the CloudBees CD/RO 10.2 LTS release of the Software Delivery Automation platform. In 10.1, CloudBees introduced Software Delivery Automation connecting, automating, and orchestrating the software delivery process, by bringing together CloudBees CI and CloudBees CD/RO in a single platform. With this new release, CloudBees continues on the path to unified administration, data, and reporting. This release introduces new value across CloudBees CI and CloudBees CD/RO with:

  • Unified authentication across the platform.

  • New CI pipeline audit reports.

  • Improvements to microservices deployment modeling, and much more.

Security fixes

This release includes the following security updates
  • PHP is upgraded from 7.4.13 to 7.4.16. For details, refer to https://www.php.net/releases/7_4_12.php. [BEE-3557]

  • OpenSSL is upgraded from 1.1.1i to 1.1.1k. [BEE-3557]

  • Apache web server: no changes.

New features

A Continuous Integration build audit report capability has been added to CloudBees CD/RO and CloudBees Analytics

A Continuous Integration build audit report capability has been added to CloudBees CD/RO and CloudBees Analytics to generate real-time reports of build events captured during the run of a given build or pipeline and is done in a systematic and scalable manner. This report offers the shared services owners and administrators a way to provide auditors with a comprehensive view of the pipeline audit trail in a time-saving, automated manner, thus reducing manual effort and error. The build events help trace:

  • Approvals and approvers

  • Test results

  • Generated artifacts

  • Source control activity

Microservices modeling
  • Rollback support has been added: New Enable automatic rollback on failure check box on Microservice Details UI is now available.

REST API available for License Usage Reports

The license usage reports, licenseReport and userReport, provide visibility into an organization’s CloudBees CI usage to ensure it is compliant with its license entitlements. These reports provide an accurate list of unique CloudBees CI users across all their controllers during a time period. If you use CloudBees Software Delivery Automation, you no longer need to use the User Activity Monitoring Plugin to track user activity.

You can try out these reports via the REST API endpoint.

For more information, refer to 10.2@cloudbees-cd-api:flow-api:apireport.adoc.

Feature enhancements

Sorting and pagination for Workload Insights

Previously, all reports were sorted by deviation. Now, you can use the up/down arrows to sort data by any of the numeric and boolean columns, such as max queue or build duration.

New pagination buttons enable you to view additional pages of data.

For more information, refer to CI Workload Insights.

Updated functionality in the Plugin Usage Report

You can now search by plugin name.

You can click a donut graph to drill-down into the corresponding plugins based on their status, for example unused or unsupported plugins.

For more information, refer to CI plugin usage.

Updated data retention property for the CloudBees Unified Data plugin

If CloudBees CI cannot send an event to CloudBees CD/RO, for example due to a network issue, it continues to attempt to send the event periodically. Previously, it attempted to send data for 24 hours. Now, it attempts to send data for up to 7 days. If the plugin cannot upload an event after 7 days, the plugin clears out the event queue and stops sending events until CloudBees CI is restarted or event collection is manually enabled again.

Redesigned single sign on experience
  • The SSO configuration has been revamped and simplified for both SAML and Kerberos, all from a single UI. The new UI is available here: from the main menu select Administration  Configurations  SSO configurations.

  • There is no longer a requirement to configure a directory provider (LDAP/AD) in the CloudBees Software Delivery Automation server when SSO is enabled.

  • The Deploy Kerberos keytabs option is deprecated from the Kerberos single sign on configuration UI. Installing keytabs is a one time IT admin activity that admins do by directly making the necessary configurations changes on the required servers and, therefore, not needed in the UI. [BEE-3298]

  • Documentation:

MySQL JDBC driver update

Mysql recommends using MySQL Connector/J 8.0 for use with MySQL Server 8.0, 5.7, and 5.6. CloudBees CD/RO is officially stopping support for MySQL Connector/J 5.* and will be supporting MySQL Connector/J 8. MySQL Connector/J 8.0 is highly recommended for use with MySQL Server 8.0, 5.7, and 5.6. Please upgrade to MySQL Connector/J 8.0. [NMB-29505]

The last few versions of the connector (v8.0.21 is the latest as of writing) has a bug so users should use version 8.0.16 until the bug (https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=100294) is fixed.

Installation notes

For complete installation and upgrade information, refer to CloudBees CD/RO installation guide.

Legacy services applications and container entities

The legacy Services applications and Traditional applications with containers have been deprecated in this version of CloudBees CD/RO. We recommend upgrading your applications to the current microservices application model.

CloudBees CD/RO on Kubernetes

Sample CloudBees CD/RO server and agent Helm chart values, found here, provide CloudBees’s default installation values. The CloudBees CD/RO images.tag value associated with version 10.2 is 10.2.0.148735_2.1.22_20210527.

Configuring autostart services for Linux installations

Linux installations that you perform as a non-root user or without sudo permissions cannot automatically start the CloudBees CD/RO server, web server, repository server, or agents. This means that you must set up service autostart after installation is complete. Learn more here.

Upgrading your CloudBees CD/RO environment

IMPORTANT: Before starting an upgrade, make sure to back up your existing CloudBees CD/RO data.

Upgradable versions

Upgrades to CloudBees CD/RO 10.x are supported only from ElectricCommander 5.0. For upgrade instructions, refer to Upgrade on traditional platforms.

Upgrading an older CloudBees Analytics version

Upgrading from a CloudBees CD/RO version 9.0.x , or earlier, requires upgrading the CloudBees Analytics server to 10.2. Upgrading from CloudBees CD/RO version 9.1, or later, does not require CloudBees Analytics server to be updated.

Updating elements containing applicationServiceMapping [CEV-16237 and CEV-16158]

If your XML export file from CloudBees CD/RO 8.0.1 or earlier versions has elements containing applicationServiceMapping, you must change all instances of that string in the file to serviceClusterMapping before importing the file into version 10.2. For example, change the following XML:

<applicationServiceMapping>
  <applicationServiceMappingId>9efcda31-a85f-11e7-8500-0800279f198d</applicationServiceMappingId>
  <applicationServiceMappingName>9efcda31-a85f-11e7-8500-0800279f198d</applicationServiceMappingName>
 …
</applicationServiceMapping>

to

<serviceClusterMapping>
 <serviceClusterMappingId>9efcda31-a85f-11e7-8500-0800279f198d</serviceClusterMappingId>
 <serviceClusterMappingName>9efcda31-a85f-11e7-8500-0800279f198d</serviceClusterMappingName>
 …
</serviceClusterMapping>
Backing up and restoring custom settings

The CloudBees Analytics installer overwrites the elasticsearch.yml configuration file with a new file. As of CloudBees Analytics version 8.3, the file includes a Custom Settings section, which lets you add Elasticsearch settings not managed by the CloudBees Analytics server without being lost during an upgrade. If you added settings to this file in version 8.2 or earlier that you want to preserve, you must back up the file to a separate location before upgrading to version 9.2 or newer versions and then add the settings to the Custom Settings section after the upgrade. During future upgrades, the installer will preserve the settings in the Custom Settings section. [NMB-25850]

Updating the MySQL configuration before upgrading

Since release 8.0.1, CloudBees has instructed customers using a MySQL database to use the following two lines in their MySQL configuration:

init_connect='SET collation_connection = utf8_unicode_ci, NAMES utf8'
skip-character-set-client-handshake

Before upgrading CloudBees CD/RO, you must remove these lines or comment them out. Otherwise, jobs will not start.

Ensuring the correct default MySQL default collation

Since release 8.0.1, CloudBees has instructed customers using a MySQL database to ensure that the default collation for their database schema is set to utf8_unicode_ci or utf8_general_ci and that no table in their schema overrides this. As of release 9.0, the CloudBees CD/RO server checks this configuration on startup and logs errors in the server log if it is not set correctly.

If the collation is not configured correctly, then entering non-ASCII text into CloudBees CD/RO might cause errors. For example, setting a release name to a non-ASCII value and attempting a search causes an exception.

If your MySQL database schema or any tables in it are set to a non-UTF-8 collation order, refer to Knowledge Base article KBEC-00385 - Converting a MySQL Database From Latin-1 to UTF-8 for detailed instructions about safely converting your schema to UTF-8. [NMB-26521, NMB_27459]

Upgrading agents that run the ec-groovy job step in multizone deployments

In multizone CloudBees CD/RO deployments, CloudBees CD/RO agents that are in a different zone than the CloudBees CD/RO server must be upgraded to version 9.0 or later for the ec-groovy job step to run successfully on those agents. You must also upgrade the gateway agents that lead back to the server’s zone including those in any zones in between the agent’s zone and the server’s zone. [NMB-27490]

For details about multiple zones and gateway agents, refer to Zones and gateways.

Removing the SSL 2.0 Client Hello or SSLv2Hello protocol from your security configurations

CloudBees recommends removing the SSL 2.0 Client Hello or SSLv2Hello protocol from your security configurations for all components. [NMB-27934, NMB-29326]

  1. Upgrade agents older that fall into this category for security reasons:

    • Windows, Linux: 6.0.3 or older; 6.2 or older

    • Mac OS: 8.4 or older

  2. If this warning appears on the Automation Platform UI:

    Note: We recommend removing `SSL 2.0 Client Hello` format from server configuration and upgrade older agents as indicated on the Cloud/Resources Page to avoid security risk.

    then enter the following command on the CloudBees CD/RO server:

    $ ecconfigure --serverTLSEnabledProtocol=TLSv1.2
Upgrading the CloudBees Analytics server

This section provides information about upgrading the CloudBees Analytics server from Version 7.3 to Version 10.2.

Potential breaking change: Elasticsearch update

The Elasticsearch version shipped with CloudBees Analytics version 10.2 has been updated from v6.6.2 to v7.10.2. As such, this update may create breaking changes in your custom reports. All changes related to the new version are described in Elasticsearch documentation. The following change may effect your reports the most. [BEE-2717]

  • Accessing missing document values throws an error. The doc['field'].value throws an exception if the document is missing a value for the field field.

    To check if a document is missing a value, you can use doc['field'].size() == 0.

Upgrading CloudBees Analytics clusters in CloudBees CD/RO 10.2

The principle of forming a cluster in CloudBees Analytics has changed in v10.2 due to the update of Elasticsearch v7.10.2. In this regard, an additional action is required to upgrade to CloudBees Analytics v10.2 or later:

When updating the first master node, the user must explicitly specify that it is the first node to be updated. If this action is not performed, a cluster being updated is placed out of service.

All installers have been instrumented to accommodate this change. For more information, refer to Upgrade the CloudBees Analytics server for more details. [BEE-2717]

Re-Specifying configuration settings

The installers (GUI, interactive console, and silent mode) for the CloudBees Analytics server do not preserve the configuration setting for the CloudBees Analytics server host name ( --hostName ) or the setting for the Elasticsearch number of shards ( --elasticsearchNumberOfShards ) during the upgrade from 7.3 to 9.2. If you specified non-default values during the 7.3 Reporting server installation, you must re-specify these settings during the upgrade. (All other settings are preserved.)

CloudBees Analytics server configuration notes

For a production environment, CloudBees recommends that you install the CloudBees Analytics server on a system other than systems running other CloudBees CD/RO components (such as the CloudBees CD/RO server, web server, repository server, or agent). If you must install it on the same system (such as for testing or other non-production or trial-basis situations), refer to CloudBees Analytics server with other components for details.

CloudBees CI operations center configurations

After upgrading to CloudBees CD/RO v10.2 from v10.0.x, your CloudBees CI operations center configurations may need to be reworked.

  • In v10.0.x, CloudBees CI operations center URLs specified in configurations are silently appended at runtime with the /cjoc path component.

  • In v10.1, URLs are used as defined in configurations. The /cjoc component is not appended.

In order to maintain pre-v10.1 runtime compatibility, the v10.1 upgrade process modifies CloudBees CI operations center URLs in existing configurations by hardcoding the /cjoc path component. You need to rework existing URLs in configurations where appending the /cjoc path component is inappropriate.

Configuration notes

Performing a full import

During a full import, the import operation might hang in the following scenarios. To import successfully into CloudBees CD/RO 8.0 and newer versions, perform the appropriate workarounds [CEV-15447, CEV-11873]:

  • A manual process step in a process has formal parameters. The workaround is to remove the entry related to the property sheet for the job step that is associated with the manual process step.

  • In the exported XML file from the earlier release, two pipelines are in different projects, and both pipelines have no gate tasks. The flow associated with the pipeline is duplicated under both projects. The workaround is to remove the flow element under the projects.

Limitations

When an application is cloned from one project (the original project) to another (the destination project), the tier maps for the application point to the environments with the same names in the destination project. To deploy the application to the environments in the original project, you must create tier maps connecting the application to those environments.

Known issues

BEE-4921

CEV-16930

Jobs might not appear upon drill-down into the "Clusters With Most Deployments" widget in the CloudBees Analytics Microservices Dashboard if the service does not contain a deploy step in the process.

CEV-17164

When you do a full import from version 8.0 to version 8.2 or newer and two or more releases have the same name (under different projects) and are associated to the same pipeline then after import the runs for all releases might become associated to the first imported release. This is because CloudBees CD/RO cannot differentiate runs between the releases since all runs are under the same pipeline project and have the same name. To work around this issue rename releases in the export file so that all their occurrences (in deploymentHistoryItem flowRuntime and so on) are unique.

CEV-18531

All subreleases of a release must appear before the release in the DSL for the release-to-subrelease link to be created.

If you are signed in to the Deploy UI and upgrade to CloudBees CD/RO 10.0, the version 10.0 sign-in page for the Automation Platform UI goes into an infinite redirect. This is because the version 10.0 Automation Platform UI thinks that your sign-in session expired even though it is active. To work around this issue, do one of the following:

  • Before upgrading, sign out from the Deploy UI and the Automation Platform UI.

  • After upgrading, sign out from the Deploy UI and then sign in.

  • After upgrading, clean your browser cache and cookies to kill the pre-upgrade sign-in session.

If you use the ectool export to export your system configuration from a previous release and then use ectool import to import the same configuration to a CloudBees CD 10.0 server, some out-of-the-box content introduced in the releases since the version from which the full export was done, such as new or updated plugins, new catalog items, and persona based menu items, may be missing in the CD server UI. It is recommended to use ectool export and ectool import only between servers at the same version.

Single Sign on does not work unless PHP configuration is changed due to a security related request. Workaround: change session.cookie_samesite to "Strict" in /opt/electriccloud/electriccommander/apache/conf/php.ini and restart web server.

N/A

You can revert changes only for high-level design objects such as applications procedures procedure steps workflow definitions and state definitions.

Restarting the CloudBees CD/RO server while new records are created for all tracked objects might take at least as long as an export or import of all projects (10 to 40 minutes for a large project).

N/A

Enabling Recursively Traverse Group Hierarchy might impact system performance when the LDAP group hierarchy is traversed. The amount of impact varies with the configurations of the CloudBees CD/RO and LDAP servers the depth of group hierarchy in the LDAP server and the network latency between the servers. Make sure that your directory provider can handle the additional load for supporting nested group hierarchy traversal.

N/A

System performance might decrease if you disable change tracking at the server level and then re-enable it. (Change tracking is enabled by default.) For details about using change tracking, refer to change tracking.
