v5.4.2 Compatibility & Breaking Changes

When installing and upgrading to Morpheus v5.4.2, refer to the following to ensure compatibility.

Breaking Changes

  • 4.2.1+: Appliance: OS: Ubuntu 14.04 has reached its end of life (EOL) and is no longer supported as a Morpheus Appliance Host Operating System. Any Morpheus Appliance running on 14.04 must be upgraded to 16.04, 18.04 or 20.04 BEFORE upgrading to 4.2.1+. Upgrades on 14.04 will not succeed

  • 4.2.1+: Clouds: VirtualBox, VirtuSteam, and MetaCloud Cloud Types are no longer supported or available

  • 4.2.1+: Puppet: Morpheus integration now supports version 6+. Puppet versions prior to 6 are no longer supported

  • 4.2.1+: Tasks: Python: Virtual environment are now used for Python Tasks. Note: virtualenv is required on all Appliance App nodes

  • 4.2.4: For appliances with externalized MySQL databases, due to MySQL deprecation of the “EDT” timezone you may need to update your database timezone to UTC or another compatible value. If this is not done, you will receive errors referencing timezone and Morpheus will not start. Morpheus should handle this change automatically for all-in-one appliances.

  • 5.0.0+: When upgrading to 5.0.0+ from 4.x.x, any bearer tokens that have been generated are deleted which requires users to request new bearer tokens

  • 5.2.1 & 4.2.5: API: Metadata: Metadata tags now referred to as tags and labels now referred to as labels. Previously metadata tags were referred to as metadata and labels were referred to as tags

  • 5.2.3+: codeready (codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms) repo access required for RHEL 8+ Appliances, replacing the previous PowerTools/powertools requirement

  • 5.2.6, 5.3.1: Appliance & Agent java version updated to 8u292-b10. jdk8u292 disables TLS 1.0 and 1.1 by default

  • 5.2.9: OpenStack v2 Identity API is deprecated as of v5.2.9 (and is removed as of v5.3.3)

  • 5.3.2+: Provisioning ‣ Deployments has been moved to Provisioning ‣ Code ‣ Deployments

  • 5.3.2+: The local code repository path moved from /var/opt/morpheus/morpheus-ui/repo to /var/opt/morpheus/morpheus-local/repo to reduce potential shared storage issues and performance restrictions. The reconfigure process creates the folders and sets the paths in application.yml, no manual intervention is needed unless symlinks exisit on /var/opt/morpheus/morpheus-ui/repo/git which will need to be removed prior to reconfiguring 5.3.2. The old /var/opt/morpheus/morpheus-ui/repo path will be automatically deleted in a fulture release but can be manually recursively deleted at any time for storage reclamation.

  • 5.3.3: Support for OpenStack v2 Identity API is removed

  • 5.3.4: Major UI navigation structure changes. Refer to the Navigation Updates reference table

  • 5.4.2: ServiceNow: Instance and Blueprint specific exposures will be removed from ServiceNow plugin support. More advanced configurations of Instances and Blueprints, in addition to Workflows, can be exposed utilizing Catalog Items

  • 5.4.2: vCloud Director: vCD 9.x will no longer be supported by Morpheus

  • 5.4.2: After upgrading, it is recommended that you manually perform one “Daily” refresh Amazon Clouds to ensure availability of Amazon Service Plans for each region. To manually refresh a Cloud, navigate to Infrastructure > Clouds > (Selected Amazon Cloud) and select “Daily” from the REFRESH dropdown menu. If this is not done, Morpheus may not show Amazon Service Plans in the provisioning wizard until after Midnight UTC following the upgrade when the next automatic Daily sync would run.

Morpheus can be installed on the following platforms. Please note the table below is for Morpheus Application OS support, not Morpheus Agent OS Support.
