Release period: 2020-04-03 to 2020-04-07
This release includes the following issues:
- Exclude configured Cloud Foundry organizations from metering
- OpenStack VMs Public API
- Limited payment expiration
- Remove support for password-based OpenStack RC files
Exclude configured Cloud Foundry organizations from metering
With this feature, meshStack can be configured to not collect metering data from specific Cloud Foundry organizations. If metering for a Cloud Foundry organization is disabled no usage reports will be generated for the spaces within those organizations. There are Cloud Foundry organizations which are used only for the purpose of automated Cloud Fondry system tests. One use case for this feature would be to exclude those organizations from metering.
OpenStack VMs Public API
A new public endpoint is available for retrieving all OpenStack VMs (both active and terminated ones).
Limited payment expiration
Limited payment method can now define an expiration date.
Remove support for password-based OpenStack RC files
Audience: Operator, User
When used with an Enterprise IdP connected via LDAP, meshPanel could be configured to generate password-based OpenStack RC files. This version of meshStack drops support for this option in favor of always generating RC files using OIDC tokens.
How to use
Users that require using password-based RC files e.g. for service automation should use meshStack Service Users for OpenStack instead. This encourages better separation between human and technical users.
