CloudBees CD/RO v2023.06.0

CloudBees is pleased to announce the v2023.06.0 long-term support (LTS) release of CloudBees CD/RO. With this release, CloudBees added several new features and system improvements, including:

If you do not use CloudBees CI controllers in dashboards, the following issue does not affect normal CloudBees CD/RO operation.

In 2023.06.0, an issue [BEE-35885] was introduced that causes newly configured CloudBees CI controllers to fail to register and display within dashboards. This issue also applies to new manually configured CloudBees CI controllers. There is no known workaround for this issue.

v2023.06.1, released July 10, 2023, resolves this issue. If you use CloudBees CI controllers in dashboards, or may in the future, you are encouraged to upgrade from v2023.06.0 to v2023.06.1. You may also skip v2023.06.0, and upgrade directly to v2023.06.1.

Feature enhancements

Downscaling requirements during Kubernetes upgrade

Starting with CloudBees CD/RO v2023.06.0, scaling down the flow-server, flow-web, flow-repository components to one replica is no longer mandatory during upgrades. This is now optional. For additional details, refer to Upgrading your CloudBees CD/RO servers.

Proxy support for email servers

Proxy support for email servers was added in ecconfigure and the CloudBees CD/RO installer.

Default options added for application process

For application process options Smart Deploy, Check Dependencies, and Staging artifacts you can now set default options. By default, Smart Deploy is set to true, and Check Dependencies and Staging artifacts are set to false.

Plugin enhancements

CloudBees CD/RO plugins catalog

The CloudBees CD/RO plugins catalog is available on the CloudBees CD/RO documentation site.

For more information about plugin support and versioning, refer to Plugin Concepts.

Legacy platform plugin manager deprecation

The plugin manager built into the legacy CloudBees CD/RO Automation Platform UI was deprecated with v2023.02.0. CloudBees strongly recommends that you migrate to the new plugin manager. For plugins that support the new plugin format, you can migrate legacy plugin configurations using a built-in Migrate configurations Service catalog item.

Migrating your custom plugins

To use the new plugin manager, your plugins must align with the CloudBees plugin development kit (PDK) configuration model and contain the plugin configuration as a first class object. To migrate an existing plugin to the new plugin manager/configuration, CloudBees recommends rebuilding your plugins using the PDK. For more information, refer to Migrate legacy plugins to pdk. Once a plugin is built to support the PDK configuration, legacy plugin configurations for the plugin may be migrated using a built-in Migrate configurations service catalog item.

Plugin configurations based on GWT may not be available to view in the new plugin manager. To view legacy plugin configurations:

  1. Navigate to DevOps Essentials  Platform Home page.

  2. Select the Administration link. The Event Logs page displays.

  3. Select the Plugins page link. The Plugins Manager page displays.

  4. Select the name of the plugin name in the Plugin Label column. The Project Details page displays.

  5. Select the Properties tab.

  6. In the property <PluginName>_cfgs, you can find all configurations for the plugin.

  7. Note any specific configuration names that need to be migrated. You can also migrate all configurations.

For more information, refer to Migrating your plugin configurations.

New platform support

This section lists new platform support.

None.

On June 29, 2023, CloudBees CD/RO v10.6.x will reach EOL. For more information, refer to CloudBees maintenance lifecycle policies. CloudBees recommends upgrading to the newest CloudBees CD/RO release to maintain support.

Refer to the following topics for a list of officially supported platforms for CloudBees CD/RO:

Resolved issues

BEE-32649

Fixed CloudBees Software Delivery Automation server database collision. This issue has been fixed in CloudBees CD/RO v2023.06.0. As a workaround for earlier versions, remove the affected record from the database and leave only one configuration.

# Get all records and select id from ec_dev_ops_ins_serv_conf
# Delete all the records, and leave only one

delete from ec_dev_ops_ins_serv_conf, where id = <one-of-id>
delete from ec_dev_ops_ins_serv_conf_aud, where id = <the-same-id-as-above>
The records must be removed from both tables.

BEE-34091

Fixed issue when a trigger was configured with a quiet time of > 0 there were occasional race conditions that produced a duplicate row hibernate error with the following message:

More than one row with the given identifier was found.

BEE-32374

In some ZooKeeper deployments, there were issues with delayed service discovery because of multiple pod restarts and the default orderly startup nature. Starting with v2023.06.0, the ZooKeeper Helm chart includes a publishNotReadyAddresses: true configuration to help mitigate this behavior.

To implement this fix, upgrade to v2023.06.0 or use the manual configuration instructions found in How to reduce ZooKeeper startup time in cluster mode.

BEE-7440

When runtime objects are created, ACLs definitions are propagated to enable filtering based on user permissions.

BEE-20205

If an unknown branch name was passed as a property reference, and could not be retrieved from CloudBees CI build parameters, CloudBees CI job tasks would fail during runtime because the branchName was passed as $[] (unknown name) in the definition. Now, CloudBees CI build parameter values are retrieved from CloudBees CI during task execution if required.

BEE-29770

When creating a task and selecting a plugin configuration, only the first 50 plugin configurations were shown. This issue is now fixed and all plugin configuration should be visible [SECO-2592].

BEE-30951

Fixed issue when CloudBees CI builds running from group tasks in parallel would fail because one task runtime in the group fails, and all other tasks runtimes and their jobs in the same group would forcibly abort. The job started by the CloudBees CI procedure was forcibly aborted by the Abort CI Build step, the alwaysRun configuration would be ignored, and the CloudBees CI build would continue to spin.

The force abort logic for ciProcedure jobs now runs the Abort CI Build step indefinitely in cases where the above scenario occurs.

An abort logic for ciProcedure jobs to run the Abort CI Build step indefinitely has been implemented to fix this issue.

BEE-30980

When creating an SSO SAML Service Provider and adding a Web Service URL, if the URL ended in a / (Ex: https://cd-latest/), an InvalidSamlResponse was returned. This was caused by the URL being extended with /commander/<action>.php and resulted in unintended character duplication, such as https://cd-latest//commander/login.php instead of the intended https://cd-latest/commander/login.php.

This issue has been fixed, and URLs are resolved as needed when including a trailing /.

BEE-31027

In CloudBees CD/RO, when a running pipeline was restarted with an active CloudBees CI job, there was no input request icon shown for the CloudBees CI job was waiting for input. This behavior is now fixed, and the waiting for input icon is present for all corresponding CloudBees CI build details associated with pipeline run.

BEE-31285

Fixed issue where tasks within a parallel group were unable to run if a previous task within the group had a runCondition and was skipped.

BEE-32713

Previously, the waiting for input icon was shown only for latest CloudBees CI build detail. With this fix the waiting for input icon is shown for all corresponding CloudBees CI build details associated with a pipeline run.

BEE-32059

When generating dashboards with columns in YAML, the Eval DSL procedure was unable to validate the configuration. This issue has been fixed, and YAML-generated dashboards with columns can now be validated using Eval DSL.

BEE-32288

When a pipeline is restarted in a preceding stage, a manual task configured with the Always run option enabled was not aborted as expected and may still attempt to or actually run. This behavior has been refactored to abort manual tasks configured with the Always run option enabled if the pipeline is restarted in preceding stage.

BEE-34210

In grouped parallel tasks, if the first task configuration resulted in run condition = false, the remaining tasks were aborted. This behavior has been refactored, and the remaining grouped parallel tasks are executed as configured.

Behavior changes

None.

Installation notes

For complete installation and upgrade information, refer to CloudBees CD/RO on Kubernetes and Install CloudBees CD/RO on traditional platforms.

CloudBees deprecated the CloudBees CD/RO ec-jruby and ec-jython wrapper programs with v10.11. The wrapper programs are no longer installed as part of CloudBees CD/RO tools.
Potential backward incompatibility

CloudBees CD/RO Docker images are now based on UBI minimal instead of UBI standard, as in previous releases. Some packages are not installed on our Docker images by default. This may cause backward incompatibility if your environment depends on these tools and utilities. CloudBees CD/RO Docker images now use microdnf as a package manager and yum and dnf package managers are no longer available. To retain backward compatibility, CloudBees CD/RO provides a symlink for microdnf as dnf. These package managers are not 100% compatible, which may cause unexpected errors and require modification of the scripts.

CGI module and support removed

CloudBees removed the CGI module and support with v.2023.02.0. After you upgrade your CloudBees CD/RO server to v2023.02.0, you must also upgrade your CloudBees web server.

UI file upload limits are now controlled by PHP in /opt/cloudbees/sda/apache/conf/php.ini.

For default parameter values and more information, refer to Configuration settings preserved after an upgrade.

Duplicate applications warning

CloudBees CD/RO v10.9 included a fix for an issue that caused duplicate applications for applications created in the UI. The upgrade process fails when there are duplicate applications. CloudBees resolved this issue for MariaDB, MySQL, and Postgres databases. Ensure that your current installation does not contain applications with duplicate names. You can rename or delete the applications. You must remove duplicate applications by ID using the deleteObjects API. You cannot delete duplicate applications by name. For more details and scripts to assist with this process, refer to KBEC-00513 - How to resolve applications with duplicate names before upgrading from a version prior to v10.9.

Apache ZooKeeper required update

The ZooKeeper version bundled with CloudBees CD/RO v10.5 was updated from v3.4.6 to v3.8.0. CloudBees CD/RO v10.5+ requires ZooKeeper v3.8.0. For installation and upgrade instructions, refer to Install ZooKeeper and Upgrade a clustered environment.

Legacy services applications and container entities

In CloudBees CD/RO v10.3, the legacy Services applications and Traditional applications with containers were deprecated and removed. Before you upgrade to CloudBees CD/RO v10.3 or later, you must migrate your applications to the current microservices application model.

Also, before upgrading from CloudBees CD/RO v10.2 or earlier you must delete all legacy services and containers. This will prevent upgrade failure, a database consistency break or inability to run the validateDatabase API.

Legacy webhook triggers

As of v10.8, webhook triggers configured and scheduled before v10.1 have been deleted. Polling triggers configured and scheduled prior to v10.1 continue to work, but they are not available from the UI to review or run.

CloudBees CD/RO server installation binaries are signed for traditional installations so that you can verify their origin and authenticity. Verifying binaries is an optional step in the installation process that can help prevent a man-in-the-middle attack. For more information, refer to Verify installation binaries.

CloudBees CD/RO on Kubernetes

CloudBees CD/RO server and agent Helm chart values are publicly available and provide the CloudBees default installation values. The CloudBees CD/RO images.tag value associated with v2023.06.0 is 2023.06.0.164409_3.2.44_20230601.

CloudBees CD/RO Docker images and Helm charts are signed so that you can verify their origin and authenticity. Verifying Docker tags and Helm charts is an optional step in the installation process that can prevent a man-in-the-middle attack. For more information, refer to Verify Docker images and Verify Helm charts.

Updated Helm charts

Updated Helm charts are available for CloudBees CD/RO v2023.06.0.

cloudbees/cloudbees-flow-agent

2.25.0

2023.06.164409

A Helm chart for CloudBees Flow Agent

CloudBees CD/RO Universal Base Image (UBI)

The actual UBI associated with v2023.06.0 is 9.1.0-1829.

Upgrading gateway agents

All gateway agents that meet the following criteria must be updated to CloudBees CD/RO v10.2+:

  • Your enterprise implements a multi-zone environment.

  • Agent versions are a combination of pre-v10.2 and v10.2+.

  • The access route to a v10.2+ agent is configured through a pre-v10.2 gateway agent.

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. Instead, you must set up the service autostart after installation is complete. Refer to Configure autostart for non-root/non-sudo Linux installations to learn more.

Upgrading your CloudBees CD/RO environment
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 the Upgrade on traditional platforms.

Updating the MySQL configuration before upgrading

Since release 8.0.1, CloudBees has instructed customers using a MySQL database to add the following two lines to 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

Make sure that the default collation for the MySQL database schema is set to utf8_unicode_ci or utf8_general_ci and that no table in the schema overrides this setting. 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, entering non-ASCII text into CloudBees CD/RO can 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 within, are set to a non-UTF-8 collation order, refer to the 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 to the latest operating system version for security reasons.

  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.

Potential breaking change: Elasticsearch update

The Elasticsearch version shipped with CloudBees Analytics v10.2 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.

Your customs reports may be affected due to changes for missing document values handling. The doc['field'].value now 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.

  • It is not possible to upgrade CloudBees Analytics v9.0.1 and below to CloudBees Analytics v10.2.0 and above. The installer exits with an error and an appropriate message when such an update is attempted. If you need to upgrade CloudBees Analytics v9.0.1 and below, you must first upgrade to a version between 9.1.0 and 10.1.0, or 9.0.2 and above. After that, you can upgrade CloudBees Analytics to v10.3.0 or higher. [NMB-31030]

  • For previous CloudBees Analytics upgrades from v9.0.1 and below: CloudBees Analytics data may contain obsolete indexes that are incompatible with CloudBees Analytics v10.2.0 and above. To work correctly, it is necessary to re-index these indexes before an upgrade. The installer prompts you to do this before upgrading.

    • In console mode and UI mode, the installer displays the following prompt if outdated indexes are detected:

      One or more Elasticsearch indexes were created in an obsolete version of Elasticsearch.
      These indexes must be re-indexed for the upgrade to be successful.
      Do you want to start the reindexation? [n/Y]

      After an affirmative answer, the installer automatically reindexes and continues the upgrade.

    • In silent mode, the installer reindexes automatically.

  • Backing up and restoring custom settings

    The CloudBees Analytics installer overwrites the elasticsearch.yml configuration file with a new file. This 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. The installer preserves the settings in the Custom Settings section. [NMB-25850]

  • Upgrading CloudBees Analytics clusters

    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, you must explicitly specify that it is the first node to be updated. If this action is not performed, any cluster that is being updated is placed out of service.

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

  • CloudBees Analytics server configuration notes

    For a production environment, CloudBees recommends that you install the CloudBees Analytics server on a system separate from 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.

    If your CloudBees Analytics server is configured with multiple nodes in a Kubernetes environment, you must pre-generate your certificates. For more information, refer to Install CloudBees CD/RO within Kubernetes.
CloudBees CI operations center configurations

After upgrading to CloudBees CD/RO v10.7 from v10.0.x, you may need to rework your CloudBees CI operations center configurations.

  • 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. 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 an 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 first create tier maps connecting the application to those environments.

Known issues

BEE-14581

The MeanLeadTime report does not work correctly when Elasticsearch has pipeline runs but no release runs.

BEE-14933

The UI does not allow the transfer of artifacts across zones.

BEE-17259

When a custom data retention policy schedule is set to run once, the data is not purged after archiving. To purge data after archiving, use a repeat schedule or the global data retention setting.

BEE-20536

When using Postgres with change tracking enabled, EcAuditStrategy errors may appear in the server log. This is a known issue, but is not expected to affect system performance.

BEE-27713

Events that originate from the default CloudBees CI create default configurations. URLs for these new controllers are not Jenkins configured URLs and cause 401 errors.

BEE-28886

You may experience SSO sign-in issues when using Kerberos due to a Microsoft known issue.

(Microsoft Windows platforms only) If the Elasticsearch cluster used by CloudBees Analytics is in the red state (meaning that it only partly functions and some data is unavailable), then upgrade, reconfigure, and uninstall operations will not work. Since the Elasticsearch service cannot be stopped when a cluster is in a red state, you must stop the Elasticsearch service process from the task manager before running the installer for these actions.

The stage inclusion status in the Release Dashboard changes color after a stage is renamed.

CEV-15122

If an application process step cannot expand to its child steps (because of an invalid run condition or an invalid formal parameter), then the step is not retried even if it uses "retry on error" error handling. The job eventually completes with an error.

CEV-15829

The retry count for group tasks or rules using "automated retry on error" is missing from the Pipeline runtime page.

CEV-16245

Multiple mapped environments with the same name from different projects are not supported in email notifications.

CEV-16250

A project import might not include the path-to-production view.

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

CEV-19239 CEV-19259

The ability to search by assignee in a Deployment Report is not available in the CloudBees Analytics report editor.

CEV-21426

If Release Command Center was set up for JIRA for user stories and defects, and the JIRA project name was mapped to the release project name using the field mapping projectName:releaseProjectName, then before upgrading to 10.0, the field mapping must be updated to mention the actual release project name using the following field mapping format: "release-project-name-in-CloudBees CD/RO":releaseProjectName.

CEV-23624

Approval by email on manual tasks should not expect parameters.

CEV-25150

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/RO 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 CloudBees CD/RO server UI. It is recommended to use ectool export and ectool import only between servers at the same version.

CEV-26700

SSO 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 the web server.

CEV-28704

CloudBees CD/RO v10.1 introduced new triggers and an updated UI for them. Pre-v10.1 triggers will continue to work but there is no UI to review or run them.

CEV-28779

Before using the export command to perform a full data export from the CloudBees CD/RO database, delete any legacy definitions and references to service objects from applications and releases.

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.
